This is a Very Important Slide In case you have not understood the fact that this is a very important slide from the heading I am going to make sure that you read the information again in many different ways The problem with very important slides (VIS) is that you try to get as much information on to them as possible Because as we all know in teaching you can’t just say something once you have to make sure its said or shown three times in three different ways to get the same message across! That way the little blighters can’t say you did not tell them The sad thing is this causes Teachers to use PowerPoint's with lots of different levels and bullet points to put across the same key message (over and over again!) Here it is again – I am important – read me! Have you got the point yet Please remember I am important too even if I am a third level bullet point It does not matter how many different ways you try to cram the information in Nobody is going to read it anyway So it’s all pretty pointless And you end up wasting your time Want students to read ? Give it to them on paper! A slide is not the place to do it Whoopee! Phew is that it now?
