GOAL: To practice skills to immerse students in creating their own Power Point projects to learn content along with the technology required.


Download Agenda in Word 2007 


Objective 1

Create flash cards for GED/ABE/ESL and Foreign Language students.

Examples of Flash Card Uses

Match pictures with vocabulary – from basic to technical or professional  vocabulary

Conjugate verbs

Match words with definitions

Match art with artists

Match dates with events

Conjugate verbs

Solve math problems 


NOTE: In this session, we will practice formatting cards to print so that students can cut and carry with them. However, many instructors simply have students use the flashcards in PP. There are many individual and collaborative variations. Have students use those they prefer as a learning tool. 


Instructions are included in the last two slides of the attached Power Point Show.

Instructions for Creating Flash Cards (Instructions are also included in the last two slides of the attached sample Power Point Show.)

Create Content

  1. Develop the list of items for the faces of each card in the deck.
  2. Apply your desired slide theme.
  3. Enter the first item for the first face of a card on your first slide.
  4. Copy and paste that slide as many times as you wish to match the number or items on your list.
  5. Substitute the name of the item in each slide copied.
  6. Go to your first slide and enter a new slide to follow it with the information you want on the flip side of that card.
  7. Copy and paste that slide after each of the face items you entered before, and substitute the information you want for the flip side of each item

Print Content

  1. Click on PRINT from the Windows menu, and select the Handouts option. That’s where you will see the layout of your flash cards on the page. Select six slides per page and print.
  2. I laminate the whole page, cut out the cards with a paper cutter, and staple the two sides  from there. Of course, you may choose not to laminate and glue the two sides together for cards.
  3. If you want the cards printed front and back, simply change the arrangement of the cards in the slide sort view so that you print on both sides. This will teach your students great spatial-perception skills! In that case, you will create the first six face cards (1,2,3,4,5,6) followed by the six definitions going in the opposite sequence: 7-2, 8-1, 9-4, 10-3,11-6, and 12-5). Then start the next sequence. You may have to print a couple of pages to make sense of the process.
  4. Print both sides. Place them together. Laminate the pages and cut. Bingo! (In fact, you might take a look at the instructions for creating Bingo cards from an earlier LL.)

Later, to save in different formats, click on Save As. When the window opens, go to the Save As Type box and select the options you want.


·         .pptx – Saves in new XML-based default file format used by PowerPoint 2007 for presentations, which uses compression technology to make file sizes smaller, structures files modularly so different components are kept separate for better recovery, and integrates easily with other programs that support XML standards.

·         .ppt – Saves as a presentation compatible with 97-2003.

·         ,pdf – Saves as a PDF file.

·         .ppsx – Saves as a 2007 PP show, which opens in full screen, regardless of whether the viewer has PP on the machine.
