PowerPoint Whiteboarding

16 August 2010

It’s always hard to keep students engaged and listening during a class and especially so during a long one.  Here are five  “low tech” suggestions for teaching with slides from a university professor:

  1. Design the slides so that certain content is missing, allowing for interaction and construction with the students
  2. Project the slides over a whiteboard
  3. Use markers to fill-in-the-blanks and to comment/expand on the content
  4. Invite students to take notes and build the content during the class
  5. Take a digital photograph of the whiteboard before erasing.

Here are some photographs I received from him that give a better idea:

What do you think?

Have you used this method with your presentations?

  2. Great Ideas here!

    Getting people involved is the best way to learn things.

    Thanks for the Post!

  3. That’s a cool idea. On my site, I have a tip for creating slides from audience/student input at http://www.ellenfinkelstein.com/powerpoint_tip_create_slides_audience_input.html. It’s very simple, just going into Normal view and typing. This tip could be used to complete individual words.
