2022 Great Plains Summit

Savory Slides

Session Description

How can we teach students to be both effective communicators and digital architects of their own content? This session will blend best practices and research-based strategies and tips for organizing content, designing and constructing slides (including theme, template, and layout), effectively and purposefully using images, color, and data, and delivering memorable presentations. Students weren’t born with a PPT clicker in their fist… BUT what your students don’t know can be taught.
