Enhancing Science Instruction through Student-Created PowerPoint Presentations
Gerido, Leona; Curran, Mary Carla
American Biology Teacher, v76 n9 p627-631 Nov-Dec 2014
Technology use in science classes can enhance lessons and reinforce scientific content. The creation of multimedia projects is a great way to engage students in lessons about estuarine ecosystems. In this activity, students can learn about estuarine organisms and use their creativity to write a story, create artwork, and develop a multimedia presentation about the organisms using the Microsoft PowerPoint program. The projects can then be shared to inform others about life in an estuary.
