How To Integrate Live Tweets Into Your Presentations I’ve seen plenty of presentations that try to incorporate social media, polling, and other interactive tools. It’s all an effort to engage the audience and keep the conversation going. But usually these presentations don’t do it right.

Wordle - Beautiful Word Clouds Quadri... da ascoltare. Il mio ultimo programma "Guida all'ascolto di 'Quadri da una esposizione' di Modest Musorgskij" si propone di facilitare un approccio consapevole e guidato all'ascolto del celebre brano classico del musicista russo. E' suddiviso in varie Sezioni: - La sezione "L'Autore" presenta una essenziale biografia di Modest Musorgskij. - La sezione "La composizione" delinea brevemente la natura dell'opera proposta, le sue caratteristiche, la sua struttura. - La sezione "Ascolta la composizione" rappresenta il cuore del programma: propone l'ascolto integrale dell'opera attraverso due percorsi differenti. A detto percorso, dunque, dovrebbe seguire poi il "Percorso B", che si caratterizza per il fatto che l'ascolto della composizione di Musorgskij è accompagnato, come già detto, da sia pur sommarie indicazioni esplicative. La sezione "QUIZ", da proporre evidentemente non prima di aver visitato le sezioni precedenti, presenta una serie di 10 quesiti di verifica.
