Using Keynote to Teach an IT Lesson

Being in IT Support, teaching isn't something we do a lot of since were are a department meant to support teachers with technology. So when I was asked a couple weeks ago if I could teach a class of Level 3 IT & Computing Students a Practical lesson on the components inside a PC and getting them to build a PC I jumped at the chance.

This gave me a chance to use Keynote to create a presentation that can help to grip the students into the lesson, show off some skills and teach them the process of what's inside a PC and how it all works. I am very much looking forward to delivering this lesson on the Friday back after October Half Term.

I will keep this page informed of how it went after the lesson :)

Love how you are willing to jump in and teach, I absolutely think IT support benefit from working alongside teachers in the classroom. Great job!

So it is now the Monday after this lesson. This lesson went really, all of the the students got hands on and engaged with taking the PC's apart and back together again.

Being able to use keynote to help deliver this lesson was a massive help, with its simple fonts and interactive and intuitive features meant I could put together a presentation to always keep the students focused on the lesson.

This was a good way to show students what they could be doing in the world of IT depending on what field they choose to go into as well as show what an ex student, turned staff member does in IT on a daily basis. I Can't wait for the next opportunity to do something like this again in the future.
