Teaching Without Walls: Life Beyond the Lecture: 8 Tips for Making Beautiful Presentations

Teaching Without Walls: Life Beyond the Lecture: 8 Tips for Making Beautiful Presentations | Educational technology , Erate, Broadband and Connectivity | Scoop.it

by Michele Pecansky-Brock

 

"Humans are visual creatures. Creating and engaging with visual content was more innate to our species than text.  But beyond the "what came first" argument, we must understand the power of images to engage the affective domain of learning.  For a moment, reflect on your childhood memories. What comes to mind? How much of what you remember is imprinted in memory because someone took photographs of those moments?  "Our personal memories, our lives are shaped through images. And as they have become more accessible to educators, understanding how to use them effectively to persuade, impact, empower, and inspire others is an important part of communicating."

While larger and bolder text helps, enabling zoom adds even more flexibility on the fly. All you've got to do is enable it first!"
