Student Powered Powerpoint: Two Fine Examples

Written by Michael Cain

Students can show depth of self-expression and the extent of their understanding of their own education with Powerpoint presentations to an attentive audience. They can demonstrate academic learning. The first student example is done by a fourth grade student with moderate behavior issues but a clear understanding of his own strengths and weaknesses in an educational setting:

As an example of academic excellence, another Community Day School student created and presented a Powerpoint based on his understanding of astrophysics. This student work is a good example of how students become teachers through outstanding presentation. This selection is peer-edited and self-edited and is not teacher edited, and the presentation was supplemented by the student spontaneously drawing additional diagrams on the whiteboard to ensure understanding.
