Brain-based learning is all about smarter, more purposeful teaching that can reach a greater number of students. It’s not any one single thing you do. It’s more about the on-going, purposeful aggregate of environment, instruction and curriculum strategies that makes it all work.
PDF is often the best format to display PowerPoint presentations on the web. The file size is relatively small, distracting slide transitions are removed, and everyone has a PDF reader. Most importantly, heading structure and other accessibility information will remain intact if you export the file correctly. If you have a presentation with tables, and if you know how to add additional accessibility information in Adobe Acrobat, it might be possible to create a PDF file that is more accessible than the original PPT file. For more information on this process, read our article on Creating PDF files from Office documents.

The presentations are not timed in any way, and you can move through them at your own pace. You can then cause each animation in the slide show to take place in turn by striking the keyboard's space-bar or clicking the mouse-button, or using the "page up" and "page down" arrows or buttons to move forward and backward in the presentation. Sometimes, more than one click will be required, but be patient. Once the presentation is downloaded, the speed of the animations is a function of your computer's processor, not the Web server or the Internet connections. These clicks also take the user from slide to slide. The last click on the last slide will cause the presentation to end automatically.
It is a big resource where you can find free PPT and PowerPoints published by educators and teachers. You can find PPTs submitted by teachers that includes topics like History of Plants and Pathology lectures, Bacteria, Cholera, Protists, Virus Measles, Logarithmic functions, FEARS, Hobbies and so on. Also you can filter to find results by topic, including Maths, Lectures on Physics, Science, Classical Studies, Biology, Languages, Religion and more.
Some sounds are embedded in the presentation, coordinated (in theory, anyway) with the moving graphics. If you are in a lab situation, you might want to mute your computer or wear headphones so that the sound of a clanking typewriter and the zapping laser displays do not irritate your neighbors. If your computer does not have a sound card, the presentation should work fine without sound.

Every version of PowerPoint since at least 7555 contains a series of highly-accessible slide layouts. PowerPoint is designed to encourage the use of these slide layouts, especially in newer versions. Using these templates correctly will ensure that your files have correctly-structured headings and lists, proper reading order, etc. The correct use of slide layouts is probably the most significant thing you can do to ensure that your content is accessible.
This NEW presentation is the sequel to the original book “Teaching with Poverty in Mind.” The first portion still has many of the same eye-popping slides on the effects of poverty. But here the focus is more on engagement, building cognitive capacity plus building school and class culture. In order to benefit from this, you’ll need to have read the book or have attended a live Eric Jensen presentation. Presentation includes 755+ slides.
You can turn D and F students into B and A students—if you know how! Every brain-based teaching presentation is backed by science, packed with practical strategies and overflowing with hope.
