Presentation requirements:

Your presentation will be submitted as an audio-narrated PowerPoint.  For instructions on how to create audio narration in PowerPoint, see the following link: Record a Slide Show With Narration. Audio narration is a requirement!

There must be a visual element (e.g., photos, videos, graphs, figures).

Your presentation must contain approximately 10-15 slides (excluding references) and run approximately 5-10 minutes.

Please note that less than 10% of your presentation should contain direct quotes.

Proper use and pronunciation of scientific terminology are required.

Be sure to properly cite your work, both internal to the presentation as well as within the reference slide (this includes photos, graphs, figures, videos, etc.).

All references listed on the reference slide should be cited internally within the presentation, and vice versa.

You will submit this presentation to your classmates to review and discuss as a part of the Week Eight Forum.

The required elements: Your presentation should contain the following elements in the order listed below. 

In addition, I expect that any feedback provided to you from Assignment 1: Annotated Bibliography and Assignment 2: The Outline be incorporated into this assignment. Please go back and review those comments.

Introduction Slide(s) – this section must contain the following:

Student Introduction

Topic selection and reason for selecting

The scientific name and common name of your technology. 

Content Slides – this section must contain the following four main subtopics (the subsections below each subtopic are recommendations to use if appropriate to your technology):


 How many people does the technology effect? In what way does it affect them? How has that number changed over time

 How prevalent is the technology throughout the world? Does it exist everywhere? Is it a luxury item?

Financial Costs

What were the research and development costs?

What are the costs related to using the technology? How much does a unit cost (if appropriate)? How has the price changed over time?

Are there any taxation policies linked to this technology? How is it treated by countries whose economies rely on it?

A unique aspect of investigation chosen by you – choose another area to investigate (similar to 5 and 6 above).

Conclusion Slide – this section must contain four to six points that sum up the main topics of the presentation.

Reference Slide (and Internal Citations) – this section must contain the following:

Internal citations – This is not just a separate section; rather, referencing should occur throughout the presentation via parenthetical citations anytime you paraphrase, make direct quotes, or use visual components from other sources.  Please be sure to cite any language, images, videos, etc. in the presentation that should be cited. 

Reference Slide – Your paper should also have a final reference slide listing 5-10 credible sources researched for your presentation.

Do not include your summary/evaluation from Assignment 1: Annotated Bibliography; simply list the references utilized in your presentation in APA format on the reference slide.
