Powerpoint Quizzes

Most will have Microsoft Office PowerPoint on their computers, if you do not you may still  view these presentations if you download PowerPoint Viewer from here, free from the Microsoft website.

Click on the images below to view the presentation. If presentation does not open straight away
you may need to save it first.

Some presentations may have separate instructions, be sure to download them as well, e.g. Pub Quiz

When you connect your laptop computer to a television or projector you will  be able to scroll through the questions and  answers as normal by pressing the enter key on your laptop. When viewing presentation ensure it is set to slideshow mode.

    Thank you for the PowerPoint games. More residents were engaged today.
    Staff also stopped to participate creating a very inclusive large group activity generating laughter and discussion.

    Hi Birgit,
    the Pub Trivia power points are very popular here, but we have done them all. Any chance of a few new ones soon?
    Keep up the great work!

    Hello Birgit, we are using an iPad tablet and can connect to our TV. We have downloaded PowerPoint but cannot play as PowerPoint presentation. How do we save the PowerPoint presentation and utilise them all? We want to enjoy them. Thanks again so much.

    The movie of the 60ties worked a treat! We used it as plan B when we had to cancel entertainment last minute and the audience was enjoying it big time – great source for reminiscing further from it. Will be using these twice a month from now on. Much better than normal quizzes.

    Thank you!

    Anja

    • BIRGIT HEANEY / March 27, 2019 at 6:33 pm

      Thank you Anja.

      These are proving popular I will add more to the list.

      Cheers

    How come I missed seeing these……geez gonna have to spend more time on your site Birgit….

    • BIRGIT HEANEY / March 7, 2019 at 10:02 pm

      Lol.. thanks for testing it for me… am in the process of getting some more done 🙂 🙂

  11. Wendy McDermott / July 25, 2018 at 10:21 pm

    Hi Birgit, these quizzes are great if you could do more multiply choice general knowledge quizzes that would be great, also I showed the movies of the 60’s powerpoint and our residents loved it. Maybe next time you could put music slides slotted throughout.

    • BIRGIT HEANEY / July 25, 2018 at 10:32 pm

      Will do my best ????

    • BIRGIT HEANEY / March 7, 2019 at 10:07 pm

      Wendy I have tried every way I know to embed videos into these powerpoints but they will not play at the other end… very frustrating!

  12. BlueCross Broughtonleall / September 12, 2016 at 12:45 pm

    Hi Birgit
    It was a very good resource. Thank you

    Is there anyway you could have the answer in the following slide after each question so that we give the residents to think of the answers. Since it is already there they are just giving the answers as the answer is already given!

    Just a suggestion

    Thank you
    Nangai

    • BIRGIT HEANEY / September 12, 2016 at 8:04 pm

      Hi Nangai
      Please ensure you have the quiz in slideshow mode, this way when you click your mouse or hit the enter button on your pc the quiz will only show one line at a time. The answer will not show until you click your mouse or hit the enter key.

      Please contact me if you have any issues.

      Hope this helps.

      Birgit

  13. Chereyne Colby / April 19, 2016 at 9:13 pm

    Love the concept, looking forward to trying it with my Residents. Will let you know how it goes

    • BIRGIT HEANEY / April 20, 2016 at 9:22 am

      Thanks Chereyne

      Will be pleased to hear how it goes.

      Birgit
