Abstract: PowerPoint as one of software provided by Microsoft Office has been proven to enable people as a medium to communicate their ideas to others, including for the professional teachers. Therefore, the skill of developing PowerPoint as a learning media must be well-owned by pre-service teachers. However, this skill can be different between individuals, one of which is from a gender factor. Therefore, this study aims to describe the analysis of the metacognition of male and female pre-service teachers in making PowerPoint (PPT) as a learning media. This research is a qualitative descriptive study using test and interview methods in data collection. The results of this study were found to be similarities and differences between male and female pre-service teachers in term of developing PowerPoint as a learning media. The similarities are that the male and female respondent groups have the same flow of developing PowerPoint as a learning media. While the differences of the two respondents’ groups are 1) on the aspects they chose as considerations in developing PowerPoint, 2) how to evaluate the development process, and 3) the selection of colors used in designing PowerPoint that has been developed.
