A unit of work aimed at developing children’s knowledge of Microsoft PowerPoint. Focuses on intermediate skills, beyond simple word processing. Children will need to have some experience using Microsoft Office and be able to find and collect information and digital media from an online source safely.
This was aimed at children in Years 3 and 4, as it was used as part of a rolling curriculum cycle. It includes a range of skills that could be covered in years 3, 4 or 5 depending on the coverage of the Computing curriculum in place at your school. There is a large focus upon evaluating digital medias, in addition to a full range of skills relating to the use of PowerPoint and creating a presentation for a viewer. To extend the challenge, more focus could be paid to the intended audience and how this would effect the choices of content made.
Organising a PPT, Choosing a visual style, Presenting information clearly, Adding and Editing Images, Adding Transitions and Animations, Adding Hyperlinks and Evaluating a PPT.
Includes all lesson resources. Links to e-resources can be found in the planning document.
