Toolbox Video_POWERPOINT TUTORIAL 3

The Toolbox Training Sessions:

Sometimes you just need to see things from a different perspective to understand how you want, or need, to move forward. The toolbox training videos cover member questions, simple ‘how to’ topics, and strategies or play activities you can take action on straight away.

Because they are mostly only 15 - 20 minutes long you can make the time to watch them – maybe that’s at sleep time, maybe at night when you sit down to relax or perhaps on the weekend when you set aside some professional development time.

You might even find yourself having a laugh as you train, and sipping on a beverage of your choice while listening is entirely up to you (but endorsed by Jodie)!

In this video I show you how to create a simple story or song animation using images, Powerpoint transition tools and basic design features.

Then I show you how to record the slides for your story/song (or record the children singing/reading instead!) and save as a video to play with the children.

The steps in this tutorial is a little more involved than the first two but I'm with you all the way!

In this video I show you how to use some of the basic tools in the Powerpoint program to create visual reosurces for children. You can use Powerpoint for more than just presentation slides! 

We go through inserting shapes, text boxes, images, changing fonts, using fill colours and more....let's do this!
