Don't Make These Mistakes in a Presentation!

Teacher Insights

Humans are visual creatures and they can easily learn things when they see it. This is why it is important for a teacher to innovate the teaching methods using the advantage of technology. One of the most practical and effective ways to present the lesson is by the use of SlideShare or PowerPoint. 

Though it enables you to use several presentation tools which help you to easily incorporate images, videos, audios, and texts, a little carelessness can put things in jeopardy.

Here are some of the Don'ts while you prepare the presentation:

*Don't go for the obvious:


Kids always anticipate witnessing something new from their teacher and not just the lesson as it is. Therefore, do not create a slide with plain text and discuss things out loud in the class. The use of slide presentation does not make any sense when you don’t make the most out of it.

*Read, Read and Read:

Don't forget to proofread your work. It can be embarrassing if you have some spelling or grammar error on your part. If you are teaching elementary grades, they may think that you’ve included the right things. But, if this happens, you can skip the slide you made or correct the spelling or grammar on the spot. But, make sure not to make the same mistake again.

*Don't overdo:


Another thing that you should bear in mind is not to overdo your slide presentation. It can be irritating to the eyes when you use multiple colors in one presentation and include a lot of images which are somehow irrelevant to the lesson.

*Keep it simple and legible:

Don't use font styles that are difficult to read. Letters should be big enough, with enough spacing between lines.
