what do you think is the most effective tools in teaching,by using of power-point or using the old tools called visual aid?for me i think they are still both effective as long as the visual aid can call the interest of the student to learn.although power-point is more adventure and more interesting.

Powerpoint and visual aid is a modern teaching facility in teaching. A lot of new and young teachers are good at using it. In many schools' classrooms, it is available for teachers to use the computer. Those who know how to use it find it very convenient in their teaching, but also there are some schools that do not have computers in the classrooms in some backward areas in our country. I know a little bit about it, but do not use it often.

Powerpoint presentation is also a visual aid. Using cartolina, etc. is also good. I still use both of them when I teach. It depends really on what the topic is and what is to be done. The good thing about powerpoint is that it is easier, faster, and more varied.

I prefer PowerPoint, especially as it is the most used now, and that's what I am used to, every lesson at university they wanted me to have a presentation with PP, if there was a presentation.

It depends really, since some powerpoints can be so boring, since they sometimes stuff everything in there, all the words.. if only they made the powerpoints fun to watch, since you can do a lot with technology these days.. visual aids can be better sometimes.

I think whatever his props, which is important as a teacher should be able to convey the material appropriately. Because if the teacher both in presenting the material props as any student can receive. But if I was more comfortable between them using power point, it's because even modest and simple, power points, more comfortable to the eye.

Hi, Powerpoint has been around for quite sometime since MS Office debuted almost a decade ago. However, its application has not found its way to the classroom until recently. Constraints include lack of proper equipment and computer literate instructors, this is most pronounced in hinterland areas where electricity is non existent, the teachers and students conduct classroom under the shade of a mango tree with rudimentary materials like pencil and paper. In sub-urban and urban areas, digital technology is slowly taking hold. It is cannot happen overnight given the high initial cost of laptops, projectors and training of qualified instructors to maintain the fragile and costly equipments. I agree, the digital classroom is more adventurous and interesting. My ideal scenario would be a 4x8 LCD blackboard with wireless capability to accept and project data from a laptop or tablet from the students and teachers. Visual animation of the lessons would depend on the creativity of the teacher in presenting any subject at hand, be it science, math or history. Powerpoint can play a big role in this kind of e-classroom.

these tools have to be accompanied by good facilitator who can use them effectively. i remember when my teachers were using visual aids. we were able to learn just fine, although i remember that our teacher had to ask some of us to help to bring her materials to the next room. with powerpoint, one needs a laptop, projector and a wall. but the learning of students can hardly be determined by tools.

First of all, let us clarify that powerpoint presentation is a form of visual aid. If what you are referring to as visual aid is the conventional colored paper and adhesive tape thingy, i say both are obsolete. I don't like seeing texts transferred to powerpoint and the reporter will just read what in there. He might have saved his time by giving hand-outs. There is another tool for an effective presentation. Its kind of 3d effect.
