Moving PowerPoints

Cristina Lor
ITA Technology Instructor

In the 2010-2011 fall semester, ITA devoted four lab sessions to the Moving PowerPoint workshop which was created to not only show the students how they can use simple programs like PowerPoint to create complex animations like in Flash, but to give the students a chance to create and finish a Showcase project, for this year's Showcase Presentations at Thoreau and Orchard Ridge Elementary schools.

The first two sessions housed the same five students. The small classroom allowed each student to have more time with their instructor and create quality final products.

The final products were impressive, and all the students learned a bunch about how to plan out an animation with sound effects in a way that can keep the audience interested!

Unfortunately, these animations can't be posted on the web in a way that really shows off their full-impact, so no student work is posted here.
