The Pedagogy of Presentation
Date & Time
Friday, May 31, 2019, 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Tired of the same old cookie cutter, read-off-the-slide of student presentations? Good presentations, not only address the Common Core Speaking and Listening standards, but, like good writing, are good by design. In this session we will look at some foundational yet flexible structure and design ideas following the “creative constraint” concept which will help teachers approach teaching presentations similarly to how they approach teaching writing. We will discuss, get and learn how to make templates that produce good presentations, not the same one over and over. We will look at how to Google Slides can help leverage imagery with photo editing tips and tricks, and how Google Forms and other tools can increase audience interactivity and critical listening and thinking to make student (and teacher, and administrator) presentations engaging and powerful. All grades welcome, best for 3rd and above.
