      Hi

      I've just been reading "Workshop Review. Clive Newton: Using word for
      language Practice and PowerPoint for Language Analysis" published in IATEFL
      TTed. Sig Newsletter in March. There were some great ideas for using word
      but no detail about how he used PowerPoint.

      If anyone has successfully used PowerPoint, I would love to hear how you
      used it and what the students thought of it.

      Thanks

            Don't think so. It was published in the IATEFL TTed. Sig Newsletter in March
            and was also submitted to IATEFL's Computer SIG CALL Review, so if you are a
            member of Computer SIG, you should be getting that in a future CALL Review.

            In answer to Miriam, sorry, in my report I guess I didn't go into detail
            about how Clive used PowerPoint.

            In general, he used PowerPoint in a sort of "answer key" role - very
            effective and immediate.

            If my memory serves me right, one specific way he used PowerPoint was during
            feedback on language analysis tasks. At one point we worked on a text in a
            Word document in pairs/small groups, colour-coding different words to show
            the different parts of speech.

            During the subsequent feedback stage, Clive projected the text we'd been
            working on (in Word) as a PowerPoint file. As he elicited our ideas, he
            showed his ideas (the answers, as it were) as cumulative "overlays" of the
            original text, with the key language highlighted in the different colours. I
            surmise he did this by duplicating the original slide many times and adding
            the colours little by little - certainly, that's how I replicated the effect
            in my "trickle-down" session to my colleagues.

            Hope that's of some use.

              There is a great idea here.

              The description seems to be a little complex.
              I imagine these are the steps:

              1. Write the text on a Powerpoint slide
              2. Copy the slide to make a new page
              3. Go to the new page
              4. Color the next parts of speech
              5. Go back to 2.

              My sequence is usually like this:
              A. nouns and pronouns then adjectives then noun and adjectival
              phrases, as the class begins to understand the text,
              all in bold red, and identify the relatives as you go
              B. Subordinating and coordinating conjunctions,
              with brackets surrounding phrases and clauses, in orange
              C. verbs, phrasal verbs, adverbs, adverbial phrases, in blue
              and underlined

              Don't go overboard on the colors - it is important
              that a black/white copy of the file comes out clearly!

              You can project the powerpoint slides sequentially,
              or you can convert them to a web site in various forms.

              I also do a similar thing on web pages.
              Here is an example of a page where I have bolded
              the syllables which are emphasized and linked
              difficult words and phrases to a dictionary:
              http://tritt.bizland.com/techenglish/telecom/internet.htm

              Here is a typical paragraph from a business case study.
              Please email me if you are interested in worked cases,
              I hope to publish "The Tritt Method" sometime soon!

              He knows that if he tries to push his colleagues too hard, particularly in a
              recession, he risks hardening their attitudes to the environmental issue
              and, indeed, to his job. On the other hand, he realizes the letter is a
              straw in the wind of public opinion. If the company does nothing, sales, and
              its reputation, will be damaged, and the gradual tightening of regulations
              will in the end threaten its very existence. Meanwhile, what to do about
              that letter?

                Dear Miriam

                I simply use MS PowerPoint for what it was originally designed for - as a
                visual component of presentations. I teach it to my students of my
                presentation class and they use it when they are giving their
                presentations, some of them do so in a very efficient and technically
                refined way.

                But maybe this was not your question?

                  Although I use PowerPoint for my own presentations (both in class and at
                  conferences) I have not yet had students use the software.

                  However, at a conference I attended recently a Japanese High School
                  Teacher explained how he has his students create PowerPoint
                  presentations over which they recorded their 'narration'. The
                  presentations were saved to a computer that all students could access
                  via a network. He claimed that the presentations were a great success. I
                  will be trying this with my students this October or November.

                  In order to do this students will need access to computers equipped with
                  microphones and enough hard disk space since attaching narrations to
                  PowerPoint presentations will make them significantly bigger. Obviously,
                  limiting the length of the presenations will ensure that they don't take
                  up too much hard disk space.
