CH.5 PG.91-112 COMM2020 CHAPTER 5: PRESENTATION AIDS 2/4/16 Presentation aids – visual devices used to assist a speaker in communicating ideas to the audience. o Models, graphs, charts, overheads, and objects. Traditional aids – aids that do not apply electronic means to communicate ideas to the audience o Doctor using life-sized skeleton to demonstrate parts of the human body to medical students / patients. The skeleton would be considered a model – to scale device that depicts an actual object Graph – a presentation device that indicates relationships found in numerical data *people like stats because they value numbers and feel that they can interpret numeric data easier than other forms of evidence* Technological Aids (pg. 97) Video o Things like movie clips, news stories, cuts from homemade recordings. MUST BE RELEVANT TO WHAT YOU’RE DISCUSSING! Audio recording o Example - If you’re making a speech analyzing a song, include clips of the music o This will enhance your ethos and it is much more effective to play the clip than to just talk about it PowerPoint o Most effective when it is used in conjunction with verbal messages. o Minimize # of slides o Slides should be readable / nice fonts & color Multimedia presentation – a presentation aid that combines and integrates video, audio, pictures, and notes into one medium Visual communication concepts (pg. 103) Frame of reference – our own singular perspective of the world around us Color pattern – collection of hues in your presentation aids CH.5 PG.91-112 COMM2020 o Test colors that work well together Form – how an item appears in terms of its representation, size, and texture o Always make sure the models you put together for presentations are accurate depictions of what it really looks like Depth – the graphic nature of an item; involves both level of detail and the amount of background provided for the image Movement – appearance of or actual activity depicted with an image o Ex – using the function that allows for words to “swim” o Can be very distracting o An easier way to incorporate movement is to just use pictures that illustrate people doing things instead of head shots or portraits Design principles (pg. 104) Concern media such as PowerPoint and Prezi Balance (2 types) – the positioning of elements within the image o Axial balance – formal balance that strives for equal distribution of the elements of a visual so they do not appear tilted on one side of the image o Asymmetrical balance – emphasizes imbalance thus creating an impression of stress, energy, and excitement Contrast – how objects and letters stick out from the background Harmony – when all parts and aspects of the presentation aid complement one another within the aid’s framework. o Color / images you use should reflect tone of your speech Guidelines for presentation aid development (pg. 107) THE POWER OF PRESENTAION AIDS IS THAT … they can assist you in helping the audience to understand complicated and complex material. CH.5 PG.91-112 COMM2020 IT IS IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER THREE RULES WHEN DEVELOPING YOUR AIDS IN ADVANCE OF YOUR PRESENTAION – PARSIMONY / PRACTICALITY / AND PRACTICE Presentation aids should make complex information simpler and easier to understand for the audience Occam’s Razor – one should not increase, beyond what is necessary, the number of entities required to explain anything Avoid distracting / complicated visuals Practicality – the proper places within the speech (the where, when, and how) you can and should make use of presentation aids When selecting your presentation aids, be practical about determining what the audience needs to see. Practice your speech while using your visual aids !!!!
