Enhancing Science Instruction through Student-Created PowerPoint Presentations


American Biology Teacher Volume 76, Number 9, ISSN 0002-7685


Technology use in science classes can enhance lessons and reinforce scientific content. The creation of multimedia projects is a great way to engage students in lessons about estuarine ecosystems. In this activity, students can learn about estuarine organisms and use their creativity to write a story, create artwork, and develop a multimedia presentation about the organisms using the Microsoft PowerPoint program. The projects can then be shared to inform others about life in an estuary.
