In this extension, you will add speaker notes to the slide deck you created.
Each slide has a space on the bottom for you to create speaker notes if you wish.
When you are giving a presentation, it will be more interesting if you don’t simplyread your slides. Also, you might want to add more information than what is alreadyon each slide. Use the speaker notes to remind yourself of additional important points youwant to make when you are in your meeting.
These notes can only be seen by you when youare giving the presentation. The person you are meeting with cannot see them when theyare viewing the slides. To begin adding speaker notes, sign in toyour Google account and go back to your original project.
Make a copy of your project and rename it. You will make changes to this new copy andcompare it with the original project.
First, look at the elevator pitch you created in the lesson. Decide if there is anythingadditional you want to say when you give your presentation. Type in your speaker notes to remindyourself of those important points so you don’t forget them.
Now, do the same thing for the other slides. Decide on what additional points you wantto say about your education, experience, activities, and accomplishments.
Be sure each point you make adds to what is already on the slides. For example, if yourslide says that you are on the soccer team, your speaker notes can add details like theyears you played and if you have future plans in the sport.
When you’re finished writing your speaker notes, scroll through your presentation andrehearse how you will give it. The goal is to talk about what is on each slide whileproviding additional information from the speaker notes.
Now, it’s your turn: Write speaker notes on your first slide togive additional information about your elevator pitch,And create speaker notes for the remaining slides as well.
