Empowering Students to Make Powerful Presentations As a novice teacher, I frequently created assignments that included student presentations. A few of the presentations were phenomenal, many were nice, and some were downright painful to watch. On top of that, some students refused to present. For all but the best presentations, the non-presenters clock watched, bored out of their minds. I’m ashamed to admit it, but for the next several years, I “solved” the problem by removing student presentations from my curricula. Then, I began teaching a new class—freshman seminar—in which public speaking and presentations were part of the curriculum. My first realization: it’s unfair to throw students to the wolves (their classmates) by requiring them to present without giving them tools, practice and feedback to be successful. How I prepared the students: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. What are some of your strategies to improve students public speaking?

50+ Awesome Tips to Make a Great Presentations! I just came out of a day long conference, where I sat through over 10 presentations. 90 percent presentations were boring. Mind you, I am not saying that these presentations did not have great content to offer, but the way they were presented were very dull and boring. I am sure most of the other audience felt the same as well. In the past 15 years or so, I have sat through most presentations and more or less the statistics turn out to be the same. 9 out of 10 presentations made are extremely boring and that too accompanied by run-of-the-mill bullets points. Yes, bullet points are boring, and more often than not they actually harm the presentation. Here is an example of that: Lets say you are an entrepreneur and are trying to present your startup to a random group of people. The reason being; when you present without bullet points, you generally give examples or come up with a parallel scenarios so that audience understands. That in no way means that PowerPoint presentations are dead.

Technology Tools for Teaching & Learning Used wisely, technology empowers students to take responsibility for their own learning. In Leonardo’s Laptop, Ben Shneiderman provides teachers with a powerful framework, Collect-Relate-Create-Donate (CRCD), for designing student-centered learning opportunities using computers. In particular, Shneiderman’s CRCD framework emphasizes the importance of the social aspects of learning in generating creative work. In CRCD projects, students research information, work collaboratively to create a meaningful product that demonstrates their learning, and contribute that project to a larger learning community. Shneiderman designed the Collect-Relate-Create-Donate framework as a vehicle for preparing young people for a 21st century world where innovation, creativity, and collaboration will be more highly prized than retention and repetition.
