It’s funny how an item as simple as a large pad of paper, basically headbound so that each page can be turned over at the top to reveal the next sheet, would become such a vital product in every school, office and place of business! The flipchart pad is popularly used combined with an easel during presentations, lectures and seminars. Even though time has moved on and we are using more, increasingly advanced technology, the flip chart still continues to be the most effective presentation media there is.
The flipchart pad is a prime example of how it isn’t always necessary to invest a lot of money in high tech visual aids in order to create an effective presentation; the best visual aids are in fact the simplest. It is essential to remember the purpose your visual aid is intended for; you are looking to enhance your demonstration, not upstage it.
Often people invest in high tech presentation equipment, however find that due to the cost of replacement parts, bulbs, software and specialists accessories needed in order to complete the lecture; the machinery ends up dusty in a cupboard. There are several advantages to using a flip chart pad; you will not need to budget for bulbs, extension leads, specialist films and expensive markers; upgrading software, laser pointers and other such accessories; all that is required when using a flipchart pad is a box of flip chart markers. Using a flipchart enables you to brainstorm ideas and methods with your audience; you will be able to make last minute changes with complete ease!
Flipcharts are commonly used for:
- Capturing information during group discussions
