Finally something I am familiar and comfortable with, Power Point Presentations (PPP). In my experience as a Teacher Aide, I have witnessed students in Year 2 compiling a PPP for a unit of work the class Teacher has set. With this being the age of the 'digital natives' it does not surprise me at the ease at which the young students attempted the task. Showing the 'no fear' attitude when commencing the task and frequently trying different and new applications to find which one suits their needs best.
Having only experienced PPP in the last 5 years or so, I have become dependant on it for University assessment tasks. The creation of a PPP is exciting for me as a mature age student. I feel happy to have been confident enough to work with Power Point and meet my goal of a successful presentation.
I found the site, Power Point in the classroom (Act360, 2007) I accessed through the Moodle website (Central Queensland University, 2009) to be most informative and could be easily followed by anyone, young or not young.
