Powerpoint and interactive presentations

1. Powerpoint presentations

• Available for all important curriculum topics

• They present the key points of a topic to enable you to give a succinct overview

• Contain high quality visuals from the books

• Please note that many powerpoint presentations fall into the trap of putting too much on a page or having trivial animations. We make these as they should be used: a brief presentation to have on a whiteboard to convey key points you might be supplementing using your own explanation books, videos etc. They should never be used as an end in themselves.

If you have a paid subscription, you can ask for a powerpoint presentation that you can't find, and we will consider making it up if it is of general interest.

2. Interactive presentations (i-topics)

• These i-topics are completely unique to us and (unlike powerpoint presentations) can be used to provide material for an entire course

• Use them on student mobile devices, laptops or whiteboards

• Material is presented as chapters

• Appropriate videos are linked to each page

• All pages are read out, so speakers or headphones are required. Mouseover or click on the text to have it read out. Mouse off or tap away and the read pauses. They are also ideal for guided reading in a subject context.

• All pages have a question and are self-answering

• Pictures can be enlarged, and often begin a series of screens that add detail to the core message

• Ideal for students to use individually and at home

• This is a flagship product that experienced teachers rave about
