Interactive presentations are presentations in which the target audience is being considered while creating content. Thus, they are a means to create engaging, information-rich and memorable content, i.e. capture the audience’s attention. One of the main advantages is that they can be used to boost the learners’ engagement and participation, thus, decreasing their passivity and promoting a sense of responsibility to be attentive.
Different activities (such as: role-plays, quizzes, games, etc.) can be integrated into the flow of a presentation. Teachers can also choose to prepare a non-linear presentation (for example, using Prezzi). In this type of presentation, teachers organically flow from one topic to another considering the learners needs at the moment and not according to a predefined sequence. This is expected to increase spontaneity, and learner engagement.
