|Note to the Trainer|
7.1 An audiovisual aid is any device which can be seen or heard by a group and helps the instructor/trainer in his/her presentation.
7.2 A good visual aid can do a lot of "talking". It can set the scene for you; it can summarize your main points or it can review your whole talk.
7.3 The effective use of audio-visual aids requires careful preparation, some rehearsing, certain skills and some extra time to set up the room in which you are to make your presentation.
7.4 A good visual aid must be simple, legible, appropriate, planned, accurate, colorful, manageable and realistic.
7.5 In using visual aids, don't talk to the aid, don't stand in front of it, hold it up for all to see and keep it up long enough for the group to see.
7.6 Types of audio-visual aids you might consider using are: films, slides, transparencies, chalkboards, flipcharts, graphs, flannel, etc.
