Rules for presentation slides

  1. One message per slide.

  1. Sentences on a slide and spoken words do not yield memories. Use images and few words.

  1. Eyesight tracks:
Movement
Signalling colours
Contrasting Objects
Big objects
Use these to your advantage.

  1. Contrast
Dim things when you are done with them.
Sharpen things wher you want to focus attention
Don't use a white background -- it will draw attention away from you.

  1. No more than six points/objects in a slide
Human cognition can hold/process six objects in memory at any time.
