The Advantages of Classroom PowerPoint Education
Though beneficial, PowerPoint presentations should be used in moderation. (presentation image by Cindy Haggerty from Fotolia.com)

PowerPoint presentations can be quite beneficial in the classroom but only when used properly. Analyse the ways in which these presentations are beneficial and incorporate those aspects into presentations. PowerPoint presentations have become popular in all levels of education, from higher education to elementary school. Students are taught at a young age, mostly middle school, how to create a presentation; they will be able to differentiate a well-crafted PowerPoint presentation from a last-minute one.

Multiple Media

PowerPoint presentations successfully allow teachers to integrate multiple media sources in the presentation. Teachers can incorporate photos, video and audio pieces in a single presentation. This is better because it is more efficient and allows students to experience information in a new way. Presentations can have links to the Internet, allowing teachers to share the most updated information with media that engages students.

Accessibility for Teachers

PowerPoint presentations are a great resource among teachers because for the first time teachers can share lessons and lecture presentations easily on a flash drive or through e-mail. Teachers can also easily share the workload of putting together the presentations without ever having to meet.

Availability for Students

One of the most beneficial aspects of using PowerPoint presentations alongside lectures is that students who are absent can be given the presentation and thus receive the same information as those who were present. This will help students to keep from falling behind, especially when the students have excused absences.

Interactive

The best part of PowerPoint presentations for the students is how interactive they can be. So, keep this in mind when making a presentation. Presentations with plain, white background and small black text are not at all interactive, and the presentations may backfire with the students sleeping in the dim light. Keep the presentations alive with pictures, colour and even audio if possible.
