Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

  • I suggest you use the beamer class. I would just use the default styles, or if you want to some simple them such as Bodilla or Antibes. Keep it simple. What counts is the quality of the content, not your dazzling-your-audience skills. See the link on my LaTeX and Firends pages for an introduction to beamer. – user10274 Apr 17 '15 at 11:21
  • Your question as it stands is very likely to be put on hold as "primarily opinion-based". Before or after that happens, you can edit your question to improve it: try to ask a more specific question that doesn't depend on the answerer's aesthetic preferences. You can also get some more ideas about what's possible at Beautiful presentations done with TeX and related systems – Paul Gessler Apr 17 '15 at 11:53

Definitely beamer, see http://texdoc.net/texmf-dist/doc/latex/beamer/doc/beameruserguide.pdf for detailed documentation or http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/LaTeX/Presentations for hands-on manual.

Using it is easy: It defines the frame environment where you put the contents of your slide. Use the \pause command to make items appear on the slide one by one.
