Powerpoint is a very effective visual aid to any oral presentation (also for non-verbal presentations). Most students will use PowerPoint throughout their education, mainly for the purpose of aiding oral presentations, so teaching students how to effectly use it is important. Powerpoints are also an effective learning tool, as it gives a visual aid for students who respond better to seeing or reading information than being spoken to - it effectly allows student from at least 3 learning styles to engage more easily with the course material.
My presentation was created to aid in the Fire Evacuation/Emergency Lock-Down Plan. Using these visual aids including an outline of the school marking assembly points, and what would happen in the event of an Emergency Lock-Down, I would better prepare the students for these eventualities and they would be more likely to remember what to do in these situations.
