Excel Pivot Table Exercise / Task

(0)
This resource has been developed as a practice Exercise for learners who have been introduced to Pivot Tables in Excel. It is a practical task that can be undertaken in teams, pairs or individually. It includes a set of data that needs to be analysed. Learners are required to brainstorm questions that a Sales Manager would need to know about the transactional data. They then create pivot tables based on the questions. There is a second spreadsheet that contains 8 sample questions and pivot tables that relate to the questions. This activity has been well received in my classroom of adult learners. They become very engaged in the process and develop a better understanding of the use of pivot tables.

This resource contains two CV templates that you can fill in with your own information. The CV's are formatted and have space for you to type in your specific information. There are prompts to help you with this. They are standard CV's and it will generally be up to personal preference as to which one you will choose to use. It would be useful to have basic word skills to work with the documents. Delete any information not required by selecting and using the Delete key. Remember a hard page break is Ctrl Enter. Use this instead of just continually using the enter key as this can muck up formatting.

Canva - how to create a logo with a transparent background

(0)
Canva is an excellent, free, design tool that can save us time and money. It makes sense to use this instead of paying for expensive designers. This step by step guide addresses the problem of not being able to create a transparent background logo in Canva (without paying). When the background is white or doesn’t match your document, it ends up looking unprofessional. Solution:  The logo is created in Canva.  Once created and saved, we use a separate website to make the white background transparent.  It can then be used for multiple documents with ease and have that professional look to it.

(Questions and answers are provided in the worksheet). If they answer the question correctly, then they can click on a number on the PowerPoint presentation to display a portion (square) of the picture in the background. The background picture is slowly revealed. The first team to identify the background picture wins. ** Leave a review for this resource and receive one free resource of your choice from my shop.
