Chapter 1. What’s the Point? > How Effective Is PowerPoint?

How Effective Is PowerPoint?

If you listen to PowerPoint proponents or to its detractors, you could be convinced that it’s a panacea, with the potential for brining world peace, or the embodiment of evil itself, contributing to the delinquency of minors and turning corporate minds into mush. So what’s the real story?

What’s Behind an Effective Presentation

An effective presentation is one that communicates ideas, teaches concepts, or convinces or motivates listeners. Obviously, such presentations can happen without PowerPoint. And that’s the point. In my experience, if you’re already a good teacher, PowerPoint can help you teach more effectively. If you’re a poor teacher, more likely than not PowerPoint will only make that more obvious. But that’s why you’re here—you’re already good and you want to find ways to do your job even better.
