Prepare your visuals
Now prepare your visuals for a talk you want to give at school or university. Before starting, plan the sequence of the slides and decide what you will say about each one. In the left hand column make a note of the contents (photos, graphs, charts, etc.) you are going to include; in the other column write the text or the key words of your talk. In this way, you will know how to talk about each slide (see the attached examples below).
After that, you can create the layout of your slides and fill them with whatever short pieces of text or images best support your talk. Choose the software or cloud application you feel most comfortable with.
