Adding action keys, linking shapes, or images to other slides within the presentation or to external websites can help the presenter navigate through the presentation more efficiently. They can also be used to give the students some voice and choice during the presentation and help them to take ownership in their learning. Use actions to help bring a presentation to life, to create engaging trivia games, or find other innovative uses.

- [Instructor] In the previous video,…we took a look at how to add action keys…to a Keynote presentation.…Action keys help us to navigate through the presentation…and also give us an opportunity…to give students more voice and choice…within a presentation.…Remember in the example we created,…I had the biology of plants with the different subtopics,…and when we clicked on the shape next to them,…it brought us to that specific category.…Now if we wanted to, we could click on the Home button,…and that brought us back to the original slide.…
Now I'm going to exit out of this…and show you another example of how you can use action keys…to engage students.…This is another presentation that I created,…and it's a very simple one.…If I click on play, it brings up a diagram of a tree,…and it shows several of the different plant structures,…the leaves, the stem, the roots.…Now, how could I use this to engage students?…Well first of all, I could ask students…as to which part they'd like to look at…with regards to what function it does.…
