In this new series, I am looking at the best way to deliver effective teaching. I’m starting with what is becoming the standard way to teach and asking if this is really the best….Microsoft Powerpoint

 

Benefits:

Structured

A good foundation to add in further media

Provides a form of focus

Good for large groups

Good in a formal environment

 

Disadvantages:

Can be too structured

Doesn’t enable the teacher or pupils to process newly acquired information

Is rather didactic

Not good for impromptu teaching or small groups
