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?

PowerPoint Design Principles - Dominance Home > PowerPoint Slides > Key Design Principles - Dominance Learn to apply one of the key design principles – dominance, and make your slides look professional and powerful. Here is a question for you: If the points on your PowerPoint presentation were to come to life and talk about how they feel about being on your slides, what will you hear them say? Would they feel like passengers in a crowded train or like travellers in a limousine– getting special attention and respect? Answers to those questions determine the effectiveness of your presentations. One quick way to improve the effectiveness of your presentation is to follow the principle of Dominance in your PowerPoint slides. What is the Design Principle of Dominance? Dominance in slide design is about making the most important element of a slide stand out from the rest. It helps your audience to get the core point of your slide at a glance. Here is a simple rule to apply the design principles of dominance in your slides: 2. 3. Conclusion:

Free Photo Realistic Apple Device Mockups Apple Device Mockups are an important part of every design presentation because all these devices look nice and can improve the appearance of every project. The Tempo of Your Presentation One of the most important components of a successful presentation is the tempo of your words. Here are rules for you to remember and implement in attempting to connect verbally with another person (be it a sales pitch, a negotiation, or a romantic overture): 1. People are most comfortable with individuals who speak at roughly the same pace as they do. Numerous studies have shown that one way to solidify a connection with another person is to mirror his/her speech patterns. A slow speaker is going to be unconsciously uncomfortable with a fast talker. So listen to the speech pattern of the person you wish to influence or persuade and make a deliberate effort to mirror its pace. 2. More often than not, we speak too rapidly when trying to engage or persuade others. So, you should almost always slow yourself down a little bit. 3. This is a skill everyone can learn and, in my judgment, one of the most critical talents in the business world.

Data Presentation - 5 PowerPoint Tips Home > Presenting Data Main > 5 Data Presentation Tips Most data presentations are confusing and boring. Learn the 5 tips to make your presentation clearer and more memorable. Tip 1: Put your conclusion on the title Most presenters use vague slide titles like Our Sales Performance. Always put the conclusion from your slide on the slide title. See this table of data on a slide: Since the conclusion is clearly mentioned on the title, audience’s eyes are naturally led to the relevant numbers on the table. Tip 2: Highlight your inference A lot of presenters lose their audience because they make them think. Realize that not everyone in your audience likes to crunch numbers. See the PowerPoint slide with clear graph below: The areas that depict losses and profits are highlighted clearly in different colors. All that is left for the audience to do is to read the conclusion on the title and see the proof (assertion-evidence method) in the body of the slide to move forward.

Illusions in Data Visualization Data visualizations are effective ways for inputting information into a human’s brain, and as Visual Analytics Researcher at Tableau Software and advisor Robert Kosara says, visualizations are what makes our world real. But even when the people who created the visualization are being honest, we can’t always trust what our eyes are showing us. We’ve evolved our visual perceptual system over millions of years (some other animals see optical illusions too) and it is extremely effective at what it does, but it still has some quirks. Sometimes it takes shortcuts to make things efficient, and those shortcuts are exposed in optical illusions. In a data visualization context, illusions are dangerous because they can make us see things that aren’t really there in the data. There are two main types of optical illusions: Physiological and Cognitive. Physiological Physiological illusions happen because of the way our sight systems physically work. Cognitive
