Abstract

This research project aims, through a practitioner research approach, to survey a group of second year undergraduate initial teacher education students about the features of PowerPoint presentations used within their primary science module. Student surveys were completed at the end of each session and, through the analysis of these responses, key points will be identified that would indicate good practice in the creation of PowerPoint presentations which support and enhance the students’ learning, attention in sessions and their note-taking. The conclusions of this report suggest recommendations not only to the layout, presentation and content of PowerPoint presentations but also to the use of transitions and animations. The findings of this research would be relevant to any practitioner who is delivering information to groups of students via PowerPoint.
