Educational presentations in 3D.
In the old days we called "lectures".
But with modern technology,
we don't just stand there and talk.
Educational presentations can take advantage of the opportunities offered by new technology.
- You can do a PowerPoint if you want.
- And that is what you should do if your audience wants that.
- Maybe that's all you can do if you don't have time to write your presentation.
- PowerPoint Now Supports Live Subtitles and Captions on Presentations
- But new tech offers new potential and new presentation methods use it.
- Plan for a modern presentation in a digital world. For presenters and inquiry/project-based learning
- The presenter made a video of the presentation.
- And was available to answer questions in text chat during the video.
- These videos were prepared on site.
- And cut into meaningful segments of about 7-10 minutes.
- The presenter spoke in the midst of the content.
- The content remains available for further use by the learners.
- Most of the content was posters that link to source web sites.
- Thus the learners can visit the instructional place and get the links.
- In educational contexts, they may need the links for reference.
Lecture in a box
- Not your granddad's literacy. Digital literacy: a presentation in a digital world. So not your grandad's presentation either
- Presentation in a box: Ethnographic Cultural Exhibits. In a digital world you can handle big boxes
- Advantage: Works on a smart phone.
- Travel friendly, always available, compatible with other activities.
- Special use: Docent on field trip or other subject-related activities.
- Podcasts for education. Snack packs of knowledge. Student-sized projects.
- Posters replace slides.
- Posters remain available for review.
- Posters carry notes (notecards).
- Posters provide web links.
- Short group meetings and group reports can be mixed in.
