PowerPoint Presentations

Follow the specifications below when submitting PowerPoint presentations to the Head Start Information and Communications Center (HSICC) for processing.

Submission Form

National Centers and others who produce content for the Early Childhood Learning and Knowledge Center (ECLKC) are required to complete a Submission Form. It helps to ensure all pertinent information is included with each piece of content sent to the Head Start Information and Communications Center (HSICC) for processing.

Plain Language Requirements

The Plain Writing Act of 2010 requires that federal agencies use "clear government communication that the public can understand and use." The goal is to write content for the broadest audience that helps users quickly find what they need and understand what they find.

Webinars and Webcasts

A "webcast" refers to information shared with a large audience via the Internet. It may be a simple audio stream or include visual aids such as slides, recorded video clips, or live demonstrations. A "webinar" expands the basic webcast into an interactive format. It attempts to mimic the benefits of attending a live seminar with audience questions, polls and surveys.

Promotional Language

Review tips and examples for writing standardized yet engaging brief descriptions, or “teasers.” Teasers are used for event and resource promotion on the Early Childhood Learning and Knowledge Center (ECLKC) and in training and technical assistance (T/TA) smartsheet forecasts.
