Maintain eye contact with your students, and you’ll get instant feedback on how interested they are in the interactive presentation.
Make School Presentation Visuals Without the Hassle of Making Them From Scratch

This is a great list to honor different learning styles! I recently blogged about how we used a jeopardy game to enhance learning the school code of conduct, and I'm always a fan of making class books to reinforce concepts! I'll be trying more of these – thanks, Rachel! Susanna Whimsy Workshop Teaching

Wonderful ideas here! Thanks for sharing. 🙂
October 11, 2021 at 8:31 am
yes! very great ideas keep them coming thanks for sharing.😊
September 18, 2013 at 7:44 pm
Brilliant list! Wow! To answer your question; #8 yes #9 yes #24 – do that video one lot. LOVE these and will try many more. Feeling inspired 🙂
btw on #33? Well.. actually.. I created and produced an SBTV show called "Enlightenment Stew". 3 minute hodge podge of monologues every week full of humor/wisdom. Put my students on it a lot. We had a blast and report back was "We learn to much!"
This list is really cool.
September 30, 2013 at 2:46 pm
Love this list! I find it's best to give kids 3-5 choices. Otherwise they get overwhelmed! This list is great because it will help me change it up so the choices I offer aren't always the same ones.
October 3, 2013 at 10:25 pm
Funny…don't see take a state test…take a quarterly benchmark…take a unit pre/post test…sure wish we had time for these!
December 7, 2020 at 6:58 am
I don’t think tests are a way to show information, they’re more of a way to see if students understand what they’re doing.
February 15, 2021 at 7:06 am
Yes I agree
January 1, 2014 at 4:05 pm
Love this list! Thanks! I do assign a lot of these types of assignments already, but do find myself resorting to tests sometimes (although I like to use different, more "FUN" or in depth versions of tests) simply because our assessment policies indicate that we ought to only assess work that is done in class, i.e. that we can observe being completed so that we can assess the process & have conversations about the learning as well as to assess the final product. I have trouble, even when I tell students that work has to be done in class, and have routines to remind them to leave work in an assigned location each period, ensuring that no one takes it home. Then accusations about fairness begin. I'd love any suggestions! I teach middle school.

I used the wanted poster idea. My grade 2/3 students created wanted posters for 3-D shapes. They were able to use the attributes of the shapes to describe the wanted shape and had to find an example of that shape to add an image for the poster. We used it for an artwork piece by ripping the edges and staining them with tea to look old. Great media literacy(posters) activity as well as math. The whole school got involved when we posted them around the school. We had students dropping by the room all day long to show us the shapes they had captured for us. My students even made these students bringing us shapes count the vertices and faces to prove that they had captured the right shape. It really engaged everyone. I look forward to using some of your other great ideas.
May 23, 2018 at 4:44 pm
I love this!! I’m a pre-service teacher in 1st grade and may actually use this tomorrow in class! The art idea is very fun and I think this a great way to make math engaging.
May 23, 2018 at 4:47 pm
I’m excited to try this wanted poster idea!
April 19, 2016 at 11:21 pm
List is very useful.

May 18, 2018 at 8:45 am
Cool list. I’ll try these out.
September 10, 2018 at 9:57 pm
Wow! I really love this list! I’m a teacher in an elementary school in Albuquerque, New Mexico and my students absolutely love these ideas. They enjoy writing fun little acrostic poems and what not and constantly say “Mrs Garcia, can we please do more!” It’s so great watching their eyes fill with understanding when they do these little tasks! My personal favourite is making a reality TV show. It really makes me laugh when I see a bunch of 9-year-olds acting in such a funny way! It really expresses their knowledge in a fun way that keeps them interested and keeps me happy! Thanks so much for this list.

7 Boisterously Creative Presentation Ideas for School Projects
It can be a tedious task to come up with new ways to present your projects every time. Try innovative ideas to make your project different from your peers and earn brownie points for creativity!
Like it? Share it!
Students can use various ideas to make their school project presentations interesting and appealing. They must be prepared in a manner such that the content is easily understood by the audience.
The projects can have a wide variety of subjects like science, history, geography, etc. More than the topic, it is how the presentation is given that matters more. No matter how interesting the topic is, if not presented properly, it will leave the audience bored in no time. A great way to avoid this, is to have an interactive presentation. One may either ask a few simple questions to the other students, or arrange a quiz after the session is over.
Creative Presentation Ideas
Many different ideas for the respective subjects can be used. The ones that are commonly used include activities like preparing models, creating charts, etc. Presentations for high school students could incorporate computers and applications such as PowerPoint.
Even if the techniques do not change much, one can make the whole activity fun-filled and interesting by introducing some creative ideas. Here are a few great ways to present your project effectively.
Posters or Banners
Posters are a great way to depict information especially for those related to geography, history, or science. A pictorial poster or banner can be used to represent timelines of events in history, or popular places in a country. Banner stands can also be used instead of banners. They can either contain all text, all pictures, or both.
The idea of designing a brochure helps explain the project in a better way. All the necessary details about the topic can be included in it. Those who listen to an oral presentation can get a rough idea of the subject being discussed and therefore, take interest in the project. The brochure should, hence, incorporate a catchy phrase that attracts the reader’s attention. One can decorate it with a logo to enhance its appearance.
Key facts regarding the topic can be included in the brochure. However, it should not be overcrowded with content. Formatting is, therefore, one of the crucial aspects of designing; enough white spaces need to be maintained in order to make the content clear enough for reading. The brochures can then be handed out to the audience before giving the presentation.
This idea works best for science project ideas like solar system, photosynthesis, global warming, etc. A poster or banner may also be kept in the background, to explain the working of the project, or give some additional information about it. Instead of using paper and cardboard, the models can also be made using food items. For example, using fruits to represent the solar system, veggies to represent animal cell, or cream biscuits to represent lunar phases.
A collage is created by gluing objects, text, or pictures together. The presentation board to be used for making a collage should look neat and clean. A collage, owing to its pictorial form, proves to be of great help in explaining the project. Moreover, the use of pieces of different colors enhances its appearance.
Skits work best for projects related to languages or history. The students can perform a drama depicting a popular fable, or an event in the history. The dialogs may also involve usage of new vocabulary.
This is a great idea for high school students. Any one of the school or classroom walls can be painted for a range of ideas like maps, important people in the history, famous places, or culture of a country.
PowerPoint can be used to its best potential for explaining the subject matter in an easy-to-understand manner. Explaining the subject matter slide by slide helps illustrate the content in an organized manner. One can add different types of effects to the presentation to make it appealing.
» Proofread and organize the material carefully. » Practice and rehearse the presentation a few times to gain confidence. » Be prepared to answer all the possible questions that may be asked after the presentation. » In case of a PowerPoint presentation, limit the number of slides to a manageable number. Make sure the presentation is not too long. » One should avoid using fancy fonts in a presentation. It can affect the readability of content, thereby, dampening the interest of the audience.
» In the PowerPoint presentation, use a design template in order to maintain consistency throughout the content. » Colors used for text and background should be in contrast with each other so that the content becomes easily readable. Avoid using a textured or patterned background for the presentation board.
Apart from these ideas, the students may also stage a debate about a particular topic, create a scrapbook to present their research, or use graph charts, especially for math projects.

20 creative presentation ideas to captivate your audience
Get your team on prezi – watch this on demand video.
Michael Lee June 17, 2019
The ultimate aim of every presentation is to etch a memorable mark that lingers in the minds of your audience long after the final slide fades away. Memorable presentations should be a creative blend of captivating design, innovative elements, and engaging delivery. To ignite your presentation prowess and set your creativity on fire, we’ve handpicked a treasure trove of 20 ingenious creative presentation ideas that will transform your presentations from bland to brilliantly unforgettable:
1. Experiment with color
It’s surprising what a little color can do. The way you use and pair colors in your presentation design can grab an otherwise disinterested audience member’s attention. Just make sure you do it tastefully and carry the theme across all frames. When in doubt, you can simply choose from one of Prezi’s existing content layouts , each with an appealing color palette.
Try experimenting with a two-toned design by adding different accents to your presentation background and other visual elements. You might start with a black-and-white design, then add a bright pop of one color throughout. Contrasting color palettes (think yellow and blue, pink and mint green, etc.) can also create this eye-popping effect. Alternatively, you can use neutral shades to give off a more subdued vibe.
Another idea? Add a color filter to your images to tie them into your color theme. Learn more about presentation colors in our guide.
2. Use a striking background theme
Looking for more presentation ideas and creative ways to present? Put some thought into your background image, as it’s what your audience will be looking at during the entire presentation. If you want to use a photo, choose one that’s beautiful, sentimental, or has action and flow. Just make sure you pick an image that has enough negative space on which to place text. You can also play around with textures and patterns, such as ripples or wood, or themes that are symbolic of your message, such as a passport, billboard, rocket launch, road trip, etc.
Additionally, make sure your chosen background image isn’t distracting. You want to keep your audience’s focus on the foreground — the graphics, text, and special effects you’ve created. Prezi already has a large library of effective and high-quality backgrounds and images you can search for when designing your presentation, so no need to source them from somewhere else.
3. Put thoughts into speech bubbles
Other creative ways to present information include using speech bubbles to communicate key points to audience members. Use them to illustrate an idea or to reveal a character’s thoughts or fears in your story. Have them pop up as notes or commentary in the frame you’re presenting. Similarly, you can use speech bubbles to show milestones on a timeline. If you’re revealing poll or survey results about a product or service, for instance, place data or participant feedback in bubbles.
But, like anything in a presentation, don’t go overboard with it. While speech bubbles can be a fantastic addition, excessive use might divert your audience’s focus from the core message. So, using speech bubbles in the right places to create impact can be effective for engaging your listeners, but scattering them throughout every slide might be a little excessive and cause the opposite effect. Balance is key when using speech bubbles.
4. Abandon the slide-by-slide style
Free your presentations from the confines of slides. As an interactive presentation tool, Prezi allows for dynamic designs to take your audience on a journey as you tell your story. Zoom in and out on key points. Navigate between topics and sections of your presentation in any order. Go vertical instead of horizontal. Make transitions between ideas look like pathways or scenes instead of simply clicking sequentially from frame to frame. All of these elements come together to make a memorable presentation.
These types of tactics will give your presentation a cinematic feel that will captivate and inspire your audience. An open canvas design also makes it easier for you to tell a story , which people tend to process and remember more easily than straight facts. Prezi’s ready-made templates and striking graphics make it simple for you to share your narrative via one of these seemingly complex designs. If you want to transform a static PowerPoint presentation into a dynamic moving story, simply upload your file and try Prezi’s PowerPoint Converter feature .
5. Tell your story with a video
Presenters have been incorporating video into their slide decks for decades. Video is one of the most creative ways to present projects. It allows you to tell your story using visuals instead of big blocks of text. Now, however, it’s time to elevate the video so it captures your audience’s attention and enhances your narrative. Embed videos that play automatically when you navigate to certain parts of your Prezi canvas.
Just be sure to use videos that aren’t distracting and that work with the rest of your presentation’s flow. They should still complement your presentation’s overall design theme and message. If you’re not producing a video yourself, you can find thematic ones from stock video sites or on YouTube. Just be aware that you might need permission to use some videos.
It’s important to select videos beforehand and place them strategically so that they hit hard in the right places. Selecting the perfect videos is like choosing gems to adorn your presentation’s crown. These videos should harmonize seamlessly with your content, elevating the story you’re weaving.
Imagine, for instance, using a time-lapse video of a bustling cityscape to represent the rapid pace of change in the business world during your presentation on industry trends. Blending your videos with the theme of your topic in this way goes beyond just catching your audience’s eye, it actually adds depth to your story while also making your message more impactful.
6. Bring your story to life with audio
Another presentation idea to minimize text and maximize audience engagement is to add sound to your presentation. Tell your story using pre-recorded audio. This creative presentation style turns the viewer experience into just that — an experience. While the audio plays, you can move around the stage and navigate to various parts of the presentation that support the narrative visually. Again, the effect is almost movie-like.
Another auditory presentation tool is music. Use music to set the tone of your talk, or inject it periodically to regain the audience’s attention. The appropriate song choice can get the entire audience into the mood of your presentation. Choose upbeat tunes to convey excitement or dramatic ones that will trigger an emotional response . Plus, if you play a catchy tune that sticks in people’s heads, that’ll help them remember your presentation that much more.
7. Add animations
Another creative way to present is by bringing an otherwise static design to life is animation. Go beyond video by borrowing from stop-motion principles for your presentation. Stop motion is a technique in which you film objects one frame at a time to simulate motion in a scene or a story. You can recreate this effect in Prezi by using zoom, fade, and pan animations to tell a moving story frame by frame.
Animations can inspire and engage your audience, but just be sure to use them sparingly and as a complement to your story or message.
7.1. Make it fun with GIFs
Adding animated GIFs to your presentation can not only make it more fun but also help catch your audience’s eye. Because they’re trendy and often reference pop culture or common emotions, GIFs can help you get your point across without having to use just words.
However, it’s crucial to exercise moderation when employing these elements. While animations and GIFs can enhance engagement, excessive use of them can become distracting. There’ll be certain presentation topics or subjects where GIFs will look misplaced, so just make sure you think carefully about whether they correlate with your message before you use them. However, GIFs are a great way to inject humor and light-heartedness right after slides filled with heavy information. When executed skillfully, animations and GIFs transform your presentation into a dynamic and interactive visual journey, leaving an enduring impression on your audience.
8. Create a timeline
The timeline is nothing new. It’s how you apply it to a presentation that can really wow an audience. Prezi’s dynamic designs let you use the timeline as the basis or focal point of the presentation and then navigate along as you tell your story or plan of action.
Zooming in on specific elements of your timeline as you discuss them adds another layer of clarity and focus. It helps make sure your audience stays on track with your story and doesn’t get lost in the details or complexities. This laid-back way of highlighting key moments or steps keeps people interested and makes it easier for them to remember what you’re talking about.
9. Use maps
Deliver a creative presentation with maps, especially if there’s a geographic or location-based topic in your content. Set a map as your background or focal point, and prompt different regions to change colors or pop out as you navigate over them. When it comes to designing maps , make sure you’re purposefully selecting colors, as the color palette you choose can change the way people respond to your data. Don’t pick colors that are too similar when you’re making comparisons, for example. Use Prezi’s zoom function to zero in on areas for more details, or pull back to reveal the larger context.
You can also go the thinking map route, which is a visual learning technique that can convey complex ideas simply and creatively. Start with a central theme, then branch out into paths or surrounding points. The eight variations of thinking maps include circle maps, bubble maps, flow maps, treemaps, and more. These can be effective interactive aids in educational presentations as well as for small businesses.
10. Do away with bulleted lists
To truly transform your presentations, consider stepping away from the conventional bullet-point lists that often lead to passive learning. Instead, harness the power of visuals to inspire active engagement from your audience. Visual content stimulates the brain’s cognitive processes, making your message more memorable. Engage your listeners by replacing bullet points with visuals .
Prezi’s open canvas design is a valuable tool in this transformation. It shifts the focus from passive delivery to interactive engagement. By using visuals, you prompt your audience to actively process and respond to your content, fostering a deeper understanding and connection with your message. This shift from traditional bullet points to a visually driven, interactive approach can significantly enhance the impact of your presentations.
11. Communicate with images
Presentation images are nothing new. However, when standing alone, photographs, paintings, and other images can have a really powerful effect. Instead of trying to talk over an image, use it as a stepping stone in your presentation, a point of reflection. Once in a while, let visuals do the talking.
Also, a study has found that people process visuals 60,000 times faster than text . So, incorporating more images will make your presentation more memorable.
However, be careful with your selection of images – make sure that they’re relevant to the topic and aren’t just filling up an empty space.
Also, If you’re using Prezi for your presentation, you can access a huge library of images that takes away the headache of finding that one perfect shot. It’s like having a cheat code for making your presentation pop. So dive into the library and pick out visuals that’ll make your presentation not just informative, but engaging.
12. Play with transitions
Using slide transitions is one of the simple yet creative ways to present a project. They create visual continuity and add movement to slides. However, choosing the right page transition for your slides is truly a form of art. You have to consider the topic, tone of voice, and your presentation design. Page transitions should match the overall design, create flawless continuity, highlight key areas in your presentation, and do all that without stealing the show. Ultimately, you want it to compliment your presentation.
If you are looking for inspiration, check out Prezi Present ‘s wide selection of templates . You can play with transitions by adding additional animated elements that will make your presentation even more dynamic.
13. Swap for an infographic
To truly stand out and make a lasting impression, consider departing from the traditional slide-based approach and exploring infographics. Infographics are powerful visual tools that condense complex information into digestible, visually appealing formats. Instead of the conventional slide-by-slide progression, imagine scrolling through your presentation, seamlessly transitioning from one section to the next. This fluid movement allows you to verbally expand on key points while displaying the core information visually.
When you’re adding infographics, aim for designs that are easy to understand but also match your brand’s vibe. You want something that looks good and fits well with the rest of your presentation, so everything feels like it’s part of the same story. This helps make your presentation both easy to follow and hard to forget.
14. Get social
Employing a unique hashtag associated with your brand can significantly amplify the impact of your presentation, extending its reach far beyond the confines of the physical venue. This hashtag acts as a vital link between your presentation and the vast world of social media. Inviting your audience to dive into the live-tweet action with a dedicated hashtag during your talk isn’t just a savvy move; it’s a dynamic double play. You expand your reach, drawing in more eager participants, while simultaneously igniting a thriving online symphony of ongoing discussions and insights.
This approach effectively transforms your presentation into an active, two-way conversation. As you speak, people can immediately share their thoughts, favorite parts, and main lessons, creating a sense of togetherness and active involvement. Furthermore, the utilization of a branded hashtag allows you to monitor and engage in these conversations, strengthening your connection with your audience and providing an avenue for addressing questions or feedback.
Even after your presentation concludes, these online discussions continue to thrive, ensuring that your message remains fresh in the minds of your audience members long after they’ve left the physical venue. This lively and extended interaction adds an exciting twist to your presentations, transforming them from just informative sessions into lively hubs of ongoing conversation and learning.
15. Use creative props
Physical props add a memorable dimension to your talk. Props serve as powerful visual aids, helping to illustrate key points, provide tangible examples, and offer visual cues. Props can be particularly useful for educational presentations, especially if you need to demonstrate an example. Another situation where props are paramount is if you are a brand that’s launching a new product and doing a promotional presentation.
With Prezi’s creative tools at the forefront of your presentation along with your latest product at hand- you’re bound to persuade your audience. Integrating props at the right time in connection to your current presentation can really create a connection between you and your listeners. Put yourself in your audience’s shoes, would you take in the information by just reading and listening, or would seeing and touching physical props add a layer of interest that enhances your mental absorption?
16. Utilize virtual reality (VR)
VR technology allows you to transport your audience into a different environment or scenario closely related to your presentation topic. Transforming your presentation into a new virtual world takes it far beyond the expectations of mundane slide-by-slide presentations.
With VR, you can engage your audience with a dynamic three-dimensional world where they become active explorers, engaging directly with your content. Picture this: You’re showing off architectural wonders, recreating epic historical events, or unraveling the inner workings of intricate systems. VR takes your presentations to a whole new level, letting your audience not only see and hear but also experience and genuinely feel your message. It’s like inviting them to step right into the heart of your story.
17. Use gamification
Picture turning your presentation into an exhilarating game that dares to captivate and thrill your audience. When you add a little playfulness to your presentation, your audience is going to absorb your information without it feeling like a chore. Making aspects of your talk into fun learning experiences is going to keep your audience switched on throughout the whole presentation.
You can achieve this by incorporating various interactive elements like puzzles, questions, or interactive storytelling that turn your presentation into an immersive and educational game. Encouraging your audience to think and respond will result in active participants rather than passive observers.
18. Employ live demonstrations
Incorporating live demonstrations into your presentation is a potent strategy for effectively conveying your message. Whether you’re showcasing a product’s functionality, conducting a captivating science experiment, or engaging your audience in a hands-on activity, live demonstrations actively involve your audience and leave an enduring mark.
Live demonstrations can transform presentations into captivating journeys where your audience doesn’t just listen but also witnesses concepts coming to life before their eyes. This physical approach creates curiosity and entices active participation, effectively transforming your message into something tangible. When people can see, touch, or take part in live demonstrations, it makes a strong connection. It brings your audience right into your content and makes sure they take the message away with them afterward.
19. Design comic-style frames
Using comic strips as a presentation style is great when you want to make your presentation engaging and easy to remember. It works well for topics where you want to tell a story, explain things step by step, or simplify complex information. Comic strips contain the best of both worlds, combining visuals with storytelling. This means they’re versatile for various topics, such as education, marketing, and product demos.
The clever approach of comic strips crafts an animated, captivating experience that keeps your audience glued to their seats and sparks their eagerness to participate. Not only that, but it also makes your message highly memorable.
Creating a comic strip in Prezi is straightforward. Start by planning your content and breaking it down into bite-size sections that will be arranged in sequence. Then, use Prezi’s features to design each section as a comic frame, inserting relevant visuals and images. Prezi’s text and shape tools help you add speech bubbles or captions to guide the story you’re telling. As you present, take on the role of a storyteller, guiding your audience through each frame of your comic strip presentation with captivating explanations that hold their attention.
20. Emulate the style of TED talks
The TED-style approach is a powerful method of delivering presentations that revolves around the core principles of clarity, simplicity, emotional resonance, and compelling storytelling. In this approach, speakers focus on distilling complex ideas into easily digestible narratives, using relatable language and impactful visuals to engage their audience. TED-style talks typically center on a single compelling idea , conveyed with passion and authenticity, making them concise, memorable, and inspiring for a wide range of viewers.

5 Interactive Presentations Ideas that will Engage Students
Interactive presentations should always be an educator’s goal. Dry, teacher-centered lectures lose students’ interest, while interactive presentations grab and hold attention. Getting students involved improves retention, understanding, and enjoyment. And it’s remarkably easy to involve the audience with just a few easy principles (especially with the right technology at your disposal).
Start creating interactive presentations with the tips and tricks below or get more insights on modern education technology.
Students today expect the classroom to be both educational and enjoyable at the same time. Interactive presentations help engage students by having them participate in the lessons instead of passively listening to lectures. This reduces boredom and gives students a sense of responsibility to be attentive.
A Gallup Poll of about 3,000 schools shows that around the 5 th grade 74% of students feel they are engaged in school, but by the 10 th , 11 th , and 12 th grade those numbers fall to the 30% range. It is important for educators from K-12 and on to higher education to recognize that keeping students engaged in the classroom is important and the adoption of interactive learning environments can be a key driver.
Millennials and Generation Y students are especially accustomed to being a part of the lessons and not just a spectator. Students are encouraged to talk and offer their ideas to create a collaborative atmosphere where both teachers and students are sources of knowledge and insight. The teacher plays more of a facilitator role in moving the lesson along and encouraging students to participate in their own learning outcomes. Students offer their own input, additional information, and give examples of how they would apply the key concepts.
The learning task is the central aspect of the interactive presentations (instead of the teacher’s energy level and hold on the students’ attention spans) and the lessons evolve around it. Even though the teacher is normally, the ‘presenter’ in most cases the ‘interaction’ part comes in a variety of ways to get students participating in the lesson. Many activities, games, role-plays, quizzes, and discussions can be integrated into the presentation flow and the lessons will take different directions from there. We will discuss later many examples of tools and techniques to encourage collaborations.
Technological Aid in Interactive Presentations
Although interactive presentations can be done without technology, it is greatly aided with the adoption of tools designed to facilitate the learning process. For example, a quiz is given in the middle of the presentation. On one side, traditionally a teacher can write the quiz before the lesson starts, print out copies for all students, pass out the quiz, and collect answers. To provide feedback for the exercise the teacher will also need to grade and start a discussion on the results before moving on to the next topic. This process is time-consuming and restrictive.
With technological aid such as an interactive digital whiteboard or a classroom quizzing application on individual devices, the students and teacher can come up with the quiz questions on the spot. This digital quiz can be administrated wirelessly to all students and within seconds, the results can be shared with all participants to discuss. This greatly increases spontaneity, variability, and class involvement.
5 Interactive Presentations Ideas and Corresponding Technology Aids
The teacher does not have to be the only star. The glory of the presentation can go to all participants who have a story to tell. The main concepts can be discussed and students should be given time to come up with a personal example. This exercise helps students relate to the subject matter and getting to listen to other students’ examples will drive home the concepts further. The need for the teacher to plan extensive examples and be the only one talking during the presentation is reduced. Teachers can also judge by the stories shared how much the students are understanding.
Storytelling with technology: Many digital whiteboards have Cast and Throw functions that will allow students to work on their own examples on their devices and send this to the whiteboard when sharing. This allows students to quickly go up and share their stories without sending files by email, wires, or USBs.
2. Non-linear presentation
Presentations that do not follow a strict order but organically flow from topic to topic based on the audience’s feedback are a great way to engage participants. Once prepared, the presenter can flow from one topic to the next by asking questions, polling, or receiving requests at the end of each key point. This allows the audience to ‘build’ their own presentation on what they want to hear not in a rigid manner as with traditional slide-based presentations.
Non-linear presentation with technology : There are non-linear presentation applications like Prezi which helps presenters build presentations on easy-to-customize templates. They offer a zoomable canvas (not slides) to help people share knowledge, stories and inspire audiences to act. The canvas shows relationships between points and offers a recommended flow but not a set path to follow.
3. Polls, surveys, and quizzes
One of the most recognizable and used tools in the classroom to get a fast reaction from students are polls, surveys & quizzes. For polls, simple questions that have limited answers are used to gather a consensus. This could be in the form of a raise of hands, ballots, or having students form groups. Surveys would require printed paper sheets with multiple choices, scales, or short answers to gather opinions. Quizzes are used to quickly test a student’s knowledge on what was just covered, so the class can identify weak areas and crystalize main concepts.
Polls, surveys, and quizzes can be anonymous or not. Openly requiring students to share their ideas on results such as a debate or open discussion would increase the interactives of the activity. Students can also be tasked to create questions and grade their own surveys and quizzes for an added layer of participation within the presentation.
Polls, surveys, and quizzes with technology : Many classroom management software such as Google Classroom has built-in tools to create polls, surveys, and quizzes along with assignments, communication, and other educational features. Once submitted, the collection and grading are instantaneous. The results can be shared easily with students both individually or as a group.
Is there a student – of any age – who does not like a good game, contest, or competition? Adding a small game into a presentation breaks up the normal lecture format and gets the audience to think critically to help their team win. There are many versions and adaptions of basic educational games . Teachers can take games such as Pictionary, Jeopardy, Casino, and Bingo then adapt them to their needs.
Free interactive teaching materials
Gamifying your interactive presentation : By integrating into the presentation links to applications like ClassCraft or Kahoot a teacher can quickly launch an interactive digital game. These applications help teachers tailor their own games by adding their questions, facts, and materials for individuals, small teams, or the whole class to participate.
5. Discussions and groups breakout sessions
Having the class only listen to a lecture marks the end of any interactive presentation. Adding sections where students can have an open discussion or breakout sessions can help students learn from each other, share insights, and have an opportunity to ask questions to their peers. It is also an opportunity for the teacher to take a break from talking and help small groups or students individually as the rest of the class converse.
Taking the discussion online for interactive presentations : Live discussion applications like NowComment allow students to markup and discuss a text in real-time which is great for peer-review activities and gather student input into one place quickly. Alternatively, Yo Tech is great for teachers to create and moderate real-time chat rooms. Students can send text-like messages, reply to other messages, and share pictures and drawings. Online chat groups are a great way for large groups of students to collaborate and interact in one place while keeping the noise level down in a classroom.
Tips for Creating Interactive Presentations
Here are some tips when creating a presentation that has interactive components:
Add in places within your lecture notes or presentation slides reminders for you to engage the audience. This could be a small image or phrase. When using digital whiteboards or other display technology you could also use a sound, empty slide, or pop-up link to prompt you to start.
It is great to keep going a good game or discussion in the class where everyone is really engaged. However, keep the maximum amount of time you can dedicate to these activities in mind. Have a watch or a timer on hand and keep things moving. Give enough time for students to get engaged without overdoing it. Spread out chances for students to talk and share. When it is time to move on to the next topic prepare a transition to the next part of the presentation.
Think of ways to let all students have a chance to share. You can select students randomly or have them take turns in some kind of order. Remind students that this is a learning activity and not everyone will get it right the first time. The interactive activity should be open and inclusive. Students who are introverted may be given activities that can be done without going to the front of the class or public speaking.
Benefits of Having Interactive Components in Your Presentation
- Retention: Actively having students engage with the concepts of the presentation in different ways and hearing it from different people (besides the teacher) helps with long-term retention.
- Personalization: Students are given the choice of where the presentation is heading and participate in their own learning outcomes.
- Fun: Having a break from the routine, getting a chance to move around, developing teams, and sharing are all much better than sitting silently and taking notes.
- Feedback: Adding interactive activities into a presentation gives you instant feedback about students’ comprehension.
- Vocalization: Having students actually vocalize their ideas helps them internalize the concepts.
- Summarization: Students review and summarize their own main points while doing the activities so there is less need for repetition.

13 Interactive Presentation Ideas to Engage Students in Class
If you’re a teacher, you’ll know that there’s a lot to think about when you’re in class. It’s important to ensure that what you’re teaching the children is as educational and as interesting as possible - with the aim of engaging the students in the subject and hopefully even enabling them to enjoy learning!
This can be a very difficult balance to strike. However, it’s made easier by these interactive presentation ideas listed in this article, which can engage even the most distracted of students!
How to display presentations
The best classroom gadget to show these presentations on is an interactive display. These are large devices that are mounted to the wall and can connect seamlessly with any video collaboration applications. You can connect interactive displays to the internet and further use them as a powerful classroom teaching tool, to help students learn in a fully interactive and efficient way. We sell interactive displays for classrooms here at Avocor.
Interactive class presentation ideas
Many work-related presentations start with an icebreaker, and there’s no reason why a presentation to a class of students should be any different.
The icebreaker question will depend on the class and age of students, but could be something like the following:
- If you could be an animal, what would it be and why?
- What would be your dream place to go on holiday?
- If you could have dinner with three historical characters, who would they be and why?
- If you could make any kind of potion, what would it do?
Incorporating video is one of the best interactive presentation ideas for students. Even if the video is about the same topic as the presentation, the fact that it’s a different type of media will interest the class.
You can either find a suitable video on YouTube or another video software or, if you have a file saved, paste it directly into the presentation .
Questions and answers
Questions and answers are a great way to get the whole class involved. You could invite one student to ask a hypothetical question about the topic, and another could answer.
For example, if you’re learning about Henry VIII and his six wives , you could ask a student to ask a question about them. Their question could be “what was Henry VIII’s favourite food?” or something similar.
When another student answers, you could ask them to explain their answer - for example, if they say “meat and bread”, they might carry on to explain that that was the main diet for royalty at the time.
Songs are a good way to interest younger kids in a topic. You can find songs about all sorts of subjects on YouTube. For example, this seven continents song could be suitable for a Geography song.
Many songs on YouTube have lyrics, so you could encourage your class to practice their reading as they sing along.
Some presentations are made more interactive by external objects - and if you want to engage younger kids, bringing some props can really help the lesson to come alive.
For example, if you’re doing a history lesson about the Ancient Egyptians , you could bring some figures of Tutankhamun, the Sphinx and the ancient pyramids for everybody to see.
Asking for direct class involvement throughout the presentation is a good way to ensure that students stay engaged. For instance, if you’re doing a presentation about animals, you could ask students to make a noise every time you mention a certain animal.
You could ask them to roar each time you mention lions, or make a monkey noise each time you talk about monkeys. This is a great way to ensure that the students are paying attention!
Transitions and animations
A simple way to ensure that your students are paying attention is to use different transitions and animations throughout your presentation.
If you’re teaching older kids or teenagers, you might not want to have too many of these, but younger kids will love seeing every item bounce onto the screen. It’s a wonderful way to get them interested in technology in the classroom !
Quizzes are an effective way to engage students of any age. You can include these at the end of the presentation and they can include questions that you’ve covered in the session.
If your students know that there will be a quiz at the end of the class, they may be more likely to pay attention throughout it! You could also ensure maximum engagement by telling students that there will be prizes for the winner of the quiz - such as stickers or sweets.
Interactive games for class presentations are always a popular way to ensure that students stay engaged! Some examples include:
- noughts and crosses or tic tac toe
- hangman or an alternative like spaceman
- 21 questions
It’s best to make these games related to the subject. For example, the game “21 questions” involves you thinking of a character and students asking questions with a yes or no answer about what character you are.
If you’re teaching a history class, the character could be somebody from history (such as Florence Nightingale or Queen Victoria), or if you’re instructing a science lesson, the character could be a famous scientist (like Einstein or Steven Hawking).
Brainstorming is another great way to get the class involved. You can use an interactive display to create the brainstorm diagram on. Students can take turns writing on the board, and it can securely connect to any external devices, so any remote class members can join in.
With an interactive display, you can also immediately share the diagram to the rest of the class once it’s finished, so they can keep it to refresh their knowledge of a topic.
For example, if you’re teaching your class about Australia in geography , you could ask their students what they may already know about Australia. They could come up with some items like the following:
- Sydney Opera House
- Aboriginal art
You could then create a spider diagram with different legs depending on the topic. For this list, there could be an “animals” leg for kangaroos and koalas, an “architecture” leg for the Sydney Opera House, a “landscapes” leg for the rainforest and outback, a “culture” leg for Aboriginal art and a “food” leg for BBQ.
Make a story
Making a story about the topics covered can encourage creativity around the topic. To do this, write down a couple of opening lines to a story related to the topic that you’re teaching.
For example, if you’re teaching students about the Ancient Roman Empire, you could start by saying “Ronald the Roman lived in the British City of Bath, where the Romans had arrived 20 years before. He spent most of his time at work, where he built houses for the rest of the Romans”.
Then, you could invite a student to continue the story, encouraging them to stay as on-topic as possible. You could even give out a prize to the student with the best part of the story. Depending on the size of the class, you could ask every student to contribute.
Stories also work well for English lessons. In these classes, the topic of the story doesn’t matter as much, but you could encourage students to use whatever language they’ve been learning.
For example, if your class has been focused on adjectives, you could ask students to put as many adjectives as possible in each part of their story.
Have a short play
You could take your stories to the next level by creating a short play on one of your slides. This could be based on whatever topic you’re learning about, and you could select a few students to come to the front of the class and read out the lines.
You may wish to create this personally, find a relevant play online or you could even turn a well-known story into a play!
Virtual field trip
One of the most creative interactive school presentation ideas is to take the class on a virtual field trip. This is particularly valuable for geography lessons, where you may learn about places that students might not be able to visit in person, like the Amazon rainforest or even under the sea!
You could link to Google maps, where you could use Google Earth to explore a particular area. Alternatively, there are some YouTube channels that specialise in virtual tours and field trips, such as this one which details all you need to know about rainforests .
If you have a classroom full of students and want to keep them as engaged as possible while teaching them new material, try some of these interactive games for classroom presentations and other ideas!
By incorporating some of these interactive ideas into your presentation, you’ll have the students’ full undivided attention and ensure that they not only enjoy the class but retain the information.

4 Best School Project Presentation Ideas
1. The Presentation
When you need to present a school project the most important thing is, of course, the presentation itself, so you’ll need to put some extra effort into it. The best way to do this is to make a Power Point presentation. They are very easy to make and they are also very useful. The presentation will help you remember what comes next, if you get stuck.
Make a resume of your whole project with the Power Point presentation; you don’t need to put everything you are going to say into it, it should merely be a reminder for you and should show only the most important parts of your project to your audience. You can also do it the old fashioned way – make a presentation on paper. Just make sure that letters are big enough so that even those in the back can see them.
2. Brochures, Pictures and Artwork
To make your presentation more interesting, make something you can give to your audience. You can make some brochures that will contain the most important things about your project, or some pictures that illustrate what you are talking about. Any other type of artwork that comes to your mind will do great.
The whole point is to give your audience something that is closely related to what you are talking about so that they can feel as involved in the project as possible. Anything colorful, like pictures, would work great to catch your audience’s attention.
3. Involve Your Audience
You don’t want your audience to be bored with what you’re saying, so involve them in the whole thing. No matter how interesting your topic might be, your classmates will feel totally bored and left out if you are the only one talking the whole time. Instead of just talking, ask questions.
Ask your classmates’ opinions on the subject or ask if someone has some experience related to the topic of your project. Ask anything you can think of. You need to make your audience feel involved in your presentation; it will be both more interesting and educational. Both you and all of the others will get a chance to hear more on the subject.
4. Interviews and Video Material
If you have time and equipment you should definitely make some interviews and video material about your project. Ask people what they think about the subject and film this to make it a part of your presentation. It’s even better if you can find someone who had a direct experience in what you are talking about and is willing to talk about that.
Let’s say you are doing a project on dangers of using drugs, try to make an interview with a doctor who treats people who are using. Ask all those ugly questions and try to get answers that are as accurate as possible. Ask about both physical and psychological consequences and don’t be afraid to present all the details, no matter how disturbing they might be. After all, your goal is to show the dangers, and they are never pretty.

- Advertisements : create an advertising campaign to sell a product. The product can be real or imaginary. Try using this to teach persuasion, as an assignment for speech class, or to reinforce skills learned in a consumer class.
- Album Covers: create artwork for an album. The album may be connected to a skill (such a multiplication) and should demonstrate or explain how that skill is used. Or the album cover may be connected to a novel and the art work might present a relevant theme in the story. Another use would be to have students create natural disaster album covers in a science class where the cover would depict and explain the event.
- Autobiographies: write the story of your life. This assignment may help you teach autobiography or reinforce a broad range of writing skills.
- Awards: create awards to present to historical figures, scientists, mathematicians, authors, or characters from a novel.
- Banners: create an informational banner. Students could create time lines of the American civil war or the Spanish alphabet.
- Bar Graphs: create illustrated bar graphs. These may be used to explore data sets, use statistics to support a point, or illustrate a growth or change in a market.
- Biographies: write the life story of someone else. It could be a friend, family member, historical figure, or a fictional character.
- Blogs: create blogs for literary characters or historical figures. Create an actual blog for free at blogger.com or just have students write and organize articles on white printer paper if the internet is not available.
- Blueprints: create blueprints or floor plans of a scene described in a novel, an historic setting, or an earthquake proof bridge or structure.
- Boardgames: create boardgames where students review course concepts. Game play should be based around answering review questions correctly.
- Book Clubs: Students read either novels or selections from the text book and discuss the readings in small groups. Students might be required to take notes about the discussion or provide an audio recording of the discussion as the artifact to be evaluated. Students might also create discussion questions beforehand and have these approved by the instructor. This activity may be applied to reading selections in any subject.
- Booklets: create an informational booklet. In the past I’ve had students create booklets showing comma rules, narrator’s perspective, genre, figurative language, and more. Booklets can be applied to almost any unit of study and all they require to make are some blank white printer paper folded in half, one of my favorites.
- Bookmarks: create illustrated bookmarks with relevant information. A bookmark might summarize previous chapters or contain the definitions of challenging vocabulary words.
- Brochures: brochures can be made as either tri-fold or bi-folds. Students can create informational brochure’s about geographic locations, a story’s setting, or a natural event such as how a tidal wave is formed or how the food chain works.
- Calendars: create a calendar charting the dates of key events. This can be applied to an historical event (like a famous battle), a scientific event (such a the path of Hurricane Katrina), or the sequence of events in story.
- Casting Calls: select people (fictional, famous, or otherwise) to play the role in a movie version of story or historic event. Explain which character traits were considered in each selection.
- Cheers: create a cheer explaining a scientific or mathematical process. Alternately, a cheer could summarize the events of a novel or an historic episode.
- Classified Ads: create classified type ads as seen in newspapers. It could be a wanted ad or a M4F type ad depending on the age of your students. Update the concept and have students create Craigslist ads or Ebay listings. Example applications include covering vocabulary words, introducing multiple characters in a drama, examining figures in an historical event, or studying endangered and extinct plants and animals.
- Coat of Arms: create a family coat of arms for a character from a novel or a person from history. A good activity for teaching symbolism.
- Collages: create a collage or collection of images related to a topic. Images can be hand drawn, printed, or clipped from a magazine or newspaper. These work best with large thematic ideas that give students the ability to maneuver, like a collage representing slavery, the 1920s, or an entire story.
- Comic Strips or Books: create an illustrated comic strip or book representing events from history or a work of fiction.
- Crossword Puzzles: create a crossword puzzle to review definitions of challenging vocabulary words. Great for science, social studies, reading, and even math terms.
- Diary Entries: create a diary entries for a person from history or a fictional character who experienced an historic event. Can also be applied to characters in a story or survivors of a disaster.
- Dramas: create a play. Students might adapt an existing story or create original works and plays can be centered around any event in history.
- Editorials: provide an opinion about a hot topic in history or science. Should the space program be reduced? Is US military intervention in current conflicts appropriate? Is global warming a concern?
- Fables: create fables that teach a lesson. Students may create illustrated story boards of their original fables or even dramatic adaptations which they then perform. A good character building activity.
- Flags: create a flag representing either an actual county (like Libya) or fictitious place (like Narnia). This project should be accompanied by a brief report explaining what ideas the colors and images on the flags represent.
- Flash Cards: create cards helpful for study and review. Flash cards can be created for any subject and topic.
- Flowcharts: students create flowcharts analyzing and representing a mathematical process, a natural event, or an event in history or literature.
- Glossaries: If students need to understand a large array of vocabulary words, consider having them construct glossaries to help them study and review.
- Hieroglyphics: create pictures that represent vocabulary words. Alternately, students could retell the events of a story or historical episode in simple pictures.
- ID Badges: create identification cards for characters from a work of literature or for people involved in an historical event. Include relevant details on the badges.
- Illustrated Quotes: Have students choose a meaningful quote from a text that they are reading. They should explain why the quote interests them and then write the quote on a blank sheet of paper and draw related images.
- Instructions: write instructions on how to perform an operation or experiment, diagram a sentence, or start a World War.
- Inventions: create and illustrate your new invention that address a problem in nature or society. Address environmental or sociological issues.
- Limericks: write limericks about events from history or scientific discoveries such as, “There once was a man named Sir Newton…”
- Magazines: create magazines covering large units of study such as the Industrial Revolution or Darwin’s Theory of Evolution, that way many articles can be written. Images may also be drawn or printed and added to the publication.
- Maps: create maps based on actual geographic or national boundaries and landmarks or maps illustrating the setting of a story and the journey of a character.
- Merit Badges: create vocabulary merit badges where the term is defined in three or fewer words and a small image is drawn to represent the definition.
- Movie Adaptations: plan a movie version of a novel, scientific discovery, or historical event. Pick who will play what role, plan scenes, write dialog, even create a soundtrack.
- Murals: create a mural or a large drawing of many images related to a larger idea. A mural about the Harlem Renaissance might contain images of Langston Hughes,Â Countee Cullen, and W.E.B. DuBois.
- Myths: write creation myths to account for scientific or historic events or for a creative writing assignment.
- Newscasts: deliver important information from literature, history, science, or math in the form of a newscast. Newscast can be prerecorded or presented live.
- Pen-pals: write letters to and from important people from history or the characters in a story.
- Poems and Raps: write a poem or rap reviewing any topic.
- Postcards: similar to the pen-pals assignment above, but postcards have illustrations representing thematic concepts.
- Posters: create posters to review skills. As a bonus, many of these posters can often be displayed during state tests, so if your students create high quality posters, the posters may be a useful resource during the test.
- Questionnaires: create a questionnaire and survey students to gather an understanding about thematic issues from a text or social problems for a speech or presentation.
- Radio Broadcasts: create a script for a radio program covering any appropriate field of study.
- Reader’s Theater: silently act out the events of a story or text alone or with a group of people while someone reads the text aloud. Students should be given time to prepare their acting.
- Recipes: students can create recipes about how atoms combine to form molecules (H2O), or how to create events like the French Revolution or World War I (add one Arch Duke).
- Scrapbooks: create a scrapbook of your favorite poems or important events from a decade.
- Skits: create a short skit to bring an historical event to life.
- Slide Shows: if you have access to enough computers and a projector, I suggest having students create PowerPoint presentations. With just a little instruction, students should be able to create pretty flashy presentations, and you can combine this project with a research paper as a culminating activity.
- Soundtracks: create a soundtrack for a movie version of a novel or historical or natural event. Use actual songs or just describe the mood of each song if you do not know song titles. Explain why you feel that each song matches the event. A good activity to review mood.
- Stamps: students create commemorative stamps honoring people, depicting elements from the periodic table, or challenging vocabulary terms.
- Storyboards: create story boards summarize a short story or to plan a narrative, movie, or presentation.
- Tests: write a test to help you review unit goals and objectives. Questions can be multiple choice, matching, and true or false. Answer keys should be provided.
- Vocabulary Quilts: create quilts with badges representing the meanings of vocabulary terms. Badges should have an image and a few words.
- Websites: design websites that historical figures, scientists, mathematicians, authors, or characters from novels would have had. Also, student can create websites for historical movements, scientific theories, or literary concepts.
- Worksheets: create review worksheets. Worksheets can be applied to any subject and topic of study.
- Yearbooks: create yearbooks reviewing the characters and events from several stories that the class read or containing information about many important figures from history.
Tideas are very great for students. I want to apply all of this ideas.

120 Presentation Topic Ideas Help You Hook Your Audience
Updated: October 24, 2023
Published: August 09, 2023
Cooking is easy. The puzzle is figuring out what to eat. As soon as you know that, you can get started. The same holds for presentations. The sooner you can whip up a good, informative, and catchy topic, the easier the rest of the process becomes.
Pick a good topic that resonates with you and your audience to set a strong foundation. But select the wrong topic, and it becomes difficult to connect with your audience, find mutual interests, or hold their attention.
So, let’s learn how to develop thought-provoking and relevant topics for your presentations. You’ll also find some best practices to make your presentation memorable.
Table of Contents
How to Choose a Great Presentation Topic in 5 Steps
120 presentation topic ideas, 5 presentation tips.
4. Choose an appropriate presentation style.
There are many ways to present a topic. Your personality, the topic at hand, and your audience’s personas will help you determine which style would best fit you and your audience.
Select a presentation style that will communicate the main idea clearly and have a lasting impact on your audience.
For instance, explore a freeform style presenter by Sir Ken Robinson.
5. Engage with your audience.
Work on your presentation skills to make a strong connection with your audience, get through to them and leave a mark.
Think of the presenter as the link between the topic and the audience. A strong or a weak presenter can make a difference between a presentation being a thriving success or a boring failure.
Hone your skills by engaging and interacting with your audience. Make them feel like a part of the presentation and not just spectators. 70% of marketers have found presentations with interactive content to be more effective than those without.
Here are a few ways you can make your presentation interactive:
- Start your speech with uncommon questions to your audience. Involve them from the get-go, like ask to raise their hands if X.
- Make eye contact to build credibility and show confidence. Don’t stare at your slides or notes. Smile occasionally and talk to the audience directly.
- Have an active and confident body language. Don’t stand in the same place the entire time. Move around the stage.
- Don’t be monotonous. Speak as you would to a colleague — with enthusiasm.
- Ask close-ended questions in between to keep the audience engaged without losing time. Address them using their names to keep things interesting.
- Share personal experiences and stories that your audience will find fascinating and relatable.
- Practice thoroughly before you present so you’re fluent with the material and delivery.
- Energy and excitement can be quite contagious. Make sure you exude enough to spread some to your audience.
Feeling Inspired Yet?
Now you have all the right ingredients for choosing amazing topics and a hundred ideas to drive inspiration from. So, go ahead and start cooking presentations that will blow your audience away.
Don’t forget to choose a super-relevant topic and add meaty information. Do it with excitement to make it enjoyable for you and your audience. Best of luck!
