Background The topic I have chosen to present is gymnastics. I chose this topic, as it is a topic which appeals to me. At first I did not know an awful lot about worldwide events but now as a result of completing my presentation I know more. I chose gymnastics also as I wanted to show others how enjoyable it can be. Software The software I used for my presentation was Microsoft PowerPoint. PowerPoint is the popular business and Internet presentation tool in the Microsoft office software suite. I also chose to use PowerPoint as it was the software that was available for use in school. I like PowerPoint as it enables you to add animation and effects to your slides and to use transitions between slides; this makes the presentation more interesting for the reader. Slide Creation At the start I set up a presentation by simply going to the start menu, looking in my core programs and double clicking on: When I did this a blank presentation automatically came up. ...read more.


To set the font and size of the title I went into Slide Master. I then highlighted the title and then clicked Format then Font. I selected Comic Sans MS size 28. I also selected Shadow from the section labelled Effects, and then clicked Ok. I did the same for the text but I used font size 26 and did not use the shadow.

I applied this Slide Transition by going into the Slide Master by clicking View, Master, and Slide Master. I then clicked Slide Show, and Slide Transaction and I selected newsflash and Apply to All Slides. All the slides have the same Animation.

Intended Audience My intended audience is children and teenagers. I chose this audience as gymnastics is something you need to start from an early age. I wanted to show people how interesting gymnastics is. My slides are bright and colourful with cheerful pictures, which would definitely attract children; it may also catch the eye of adults too. The language used is quite simple and easy to understand for a child, though an adult would still read it perhaps passing on information about the sport to a relative with children. Consistency I presented my information in a consistent way. I used my Master Slide to help me with this. I changed the majority of things in this section which meant it was consistent for the presentation. I wanted my work to be consistent so that people would not get districted by text and pictures flying in from different places each time a slide would appear. Concentration would be held solely by the message the slides are conveying. G.C.S.E. Information & Communication Technology Leanne Quinn 4B - 1 - ...read more.
