Technology PowerPoint slides use modern design elements for forward-thinking presentations.

"Change has never happened this fast before, and it will never be this slow again.”

This quote is attributed to many (most notably to Graeme Wood.) It's also the perfect way to describe technology. Continually evolving and shaping our modern world, technology is in everything we do. That's why technology presentations can be so important.

Make a PowerPoint About Technology

Technology is so ubiquitous that it can be hard to nail down an exact definition. I like the description offered by Brittanica, "the application of scientific knowledge to the practical aims of human life." Technology brings research to life in useful ways.

Technology is a broad subject. There are so many ways to cover it! Maybe you want to talk about a breakthrough in artificial intelligence. Or you want to talk about a new programming language that makes coding more accessible.

No matter what part of technology you're covering, a few design principles are universal to creating a captivating technology presentation. Here are three principles you can use for an excellent technology presentation:

  • Talk about trends. Technology is evolving so rapidly that it's easy to lose sight of how paradigms are shifting. Speak about those macro trends, giving day-to-day examples.
  • Paint a portrait of the future. Show your audience what they can look forward to. Devote slides to also forecasting how technology will continue to evolve.
  • Use images and illustrations. Some technology presentation ideas are more conceptual. For those ideas, it helps to use pictures and illustrations that give visual meaning to big ideas.

The success of all presentations on technology hinges upon the written content you include. Use this article to learn more about the writing process. Discover a structured set of steps that can help you create great content.

This tutorial will help you create a PowerPoint about technology that follows these principles. Read on to become a master technology presenter.

How to Make a PowerPoint About Technology

You might be wondering: how can you use a technology PPT to create your presentation? 

Templates are a starting point. The tech PowerPoint templates you source from Envato Elements or GraphicRiver are flexible and waiting for your content. When you open them, you'll see plenty of technology PowerPoint presentation ideas included.

In this section, we'll customize a few technology PowerPoint slides. We're going to work with the Cyberspace Technology presentation templateI've chosen it because its designs are perfect for technology PowerPoint slides thanks to its use of modern principles.

Templates like Cyberspace give you technology PowerPoint presentation ideas you can use for a great showcase.

Let's walk through creating three technology PowerPoint slides. You'll see that technology slide templates are sufficiently flexible to your specific purpose: 

1. The Tech Team Slide

Team Starter slideTeam Starter slideTeam Starter slide
Sometimes, a technology presentation should be about the inventors and creators behind the big idea.

Sometimes, the focus of technology PowerPoint slides should be the people behind the technology presentation ideas. Many technological breakthroughs are the result of fantastic collaboration and hard-working inventors. Why not create a slide to focus on it?

Slide 10 is perfect for focusing on the team behind the tech. Let's customize this people-centric technology slide in three steps:

  1. Update images. Click on the image placeholders and browse to your team's headshots.
  2. Update the text. Each of the text boxes are easy to click inside of and type over with your specifics.
  3. Update the common branding. We'll need to adjust the Slide Master to do this. Read on to find out how.

You might find that you can't select some aspects on the slide, like the logo or the site URL in the corner of the slide. That's because these items are on the Slide Master, the underlying slide design. 

The advantage of the Slide Master is that it controls many slide designs. So, it's easy to update all slides at the same time. Go to the View > Slide Master menu option to adjust the shared design details.

Use the View > Slide Master menu to adjust common design elements on the Slide Master.

That's it! You've set up an eye-catching slide that gives credit where due. Your team will appreciate it, and your audience will get to know the team.

2. The Image-Focused Slide

Slide 23 has everything you need for an image-focused technology PowerPoint slide.

Every presenter needs a few "general purpose" slides in their toolbelt. That's what slide 23 is perfect for.

Slides like this are perfect because they work for practically any purpose. Any time that you want to focus on an image and balance it with a bit of info, consider using this slide.

Again, a few tweaks can completely transform this slide:

  1. Add your image. Click in the placeholder on the right side. Then browse to a technology-centric image.
  2. Adjust the detail boxes. There are four boxes that you can use to add more detail. Type over the "Option" text and update the icons (more on that below.) Also, I moved all four boxes up to not overlap the images. 
  3. Update text. Type over the main text boxes to complete the slide.

One bonus for this technology PowerPoint template is the included set of icons. In your download, you'll find a separate PowerPoint file that's full of icons. I used one of the icons in this presentation and copied and pasted it into my technology presentation.

Use the included icon_pack.pptx file to grab an icon. Then copy and paste it into your active presentation PowerPoint presentation about technology.

That's it! You've completed an excellent looking technology PowerPoint slide with a soft sales angle.

3. The Device Mockup Slide

When many people think about technology, they might think of how they use it in their day-to-day life. That includes the smartphone apps that they turn to for convenience and answers.

Slide 34 is the perfect way to show off a new app or mobile website. It's a real-world mockup, and it's easy to add your screenshot. Let's see three steps you can use to craft this slide:

  1. Device mockup. Click the image icon and browse to a screenshot you capture in your app.
  2. Type over text. Type in the text boxes to add your specifics.
  3. Cut down on text. Make sure that your finished slide has fewer text elements to make it easier for your audience to focus.

4. Product Pricing Slide

A product pricing slide is a good addition to any presentation on technology, especially if you're selling a product.

When creating a presentation on technology, a product pricing slide is important. An important part of presenting a product is the pricing. Pricing determines if people want to buy your product. Slide 15 is a good option for product pricing. You can customize this slide in two simple steps:

  1. Add product image. This template has a picture placeholder, so adding an image is easy. Click on the Insert Picture from File. A file finder appears. Find the image file and double click. Now your product image is on the slide.
  2. Update the text. Start by highlighting the text. Press Delete on your keyboard to get rid of unwanted text. Next, add the text that you want.

A product features slide is a good addition to any sales technology presentation.

If you're presenting a PowerPoint presentation on new technology, include the product's features. Slide 19 is a great slide to add the product features to. Here’s how to add your product features.

  1. Replace the text. Erase the text that’s there. Highlight the text and press Delete. Type in your product information. 
  2. Add another feature box. Copy the box and paste it where you want. Next, add a new text box. Start by clicking on the Insert tab. Next, click on the Text Box button in the toolbar.

  1. Add your data. Double click on the pie chart. A Chart Design tab appears when you double click on the pie chart. A sidebar also appears on the right side of your screen. In the sidebar, use the Angle of First Slice section to adjust your pie slice on the pie chart.
  2. Edit the pie chart data. Click on the Edit Data in Excel button in the toolbar. Add your data to the spreadsheet that pops up. This adjusts the chart on your slide.
  3. Add your information. Replace the text that comes on the slide. Then, add the information that explains the data on the slide.

Include a timeline in your presentation about technology. People are going to want to know when it launches. Slide 44 is a great option for a timeline. Here are two steps you can follow to customize this slide:

  1. Add your own text. Adding information about the expected product launch is essential. Highlight the text that you want to remove, and press Delete on your keyboard. Next, click inside the textbox and begin typing your own text.
  2. Add an image. Click on the Insert Picture from file button to add an image to the timeline. To change the size of the picture holder, click on the grey line outside the Insert Picture from File button. Use the handles to adjust the size of the picture placeholder.
