Oommen, Abraham
English Language Teaching, v5 n12 p54-61 2012
The current study, as part of an ongoing investigation to examine teacher perceptions about the teaching of English as a global language at the tertiary level education, aims at examining learner perceptions about PowerPoint presentations used in English classroom instruction for enhancement and integration of four language skills and effective use of PowerPoint presentation as a teaching technique in smart classroom settings. A classroom action research and a questionnaire survey were conducted in a class consisting of 50 learners of Preparatory Year English Programme at Jazan University, Saudi Arabia. The results showed that learners preferred PowerPoint Presentations over traditional methods of lecture delivery and had positive attitudes towards PowerPoint presentations and lecturers who use them in their lessons. The result of this study conforms to previous studies to find the efficacy of PowerPoint presentations in university classroom instruction.
