Most powerpoint slides have been optimised for teaching online, having been used to deliver online A Level lessons for the past 3 years with 100% of students gaining A*-C.
Powerpoints include tasks that have been adapted from a face-to-face classroom to suit online/blended learning. This includes things like:
Shared screen group annotation activities
Small group tasks (for example in Zoom ‘breakout rooms’)
‘Toe the line’ - how far do you agree with a statement? Place your name on the line and then discuss with the class
Timelines/diagrams that students can print/screenshot and annotate during sessions
