Robin Good's curator insight, March 1, 6:12 AM



Feedbag.io is a free web app which allows you to upload any .png, .jpeg, .gif, .pdf, .psd, .eps or .ai set of image files and to share it with another party that wants to review it.


You simply upload one or more images and you are instantly provided with a unique page that shows your uploaded pics on a left column of thumbnails and in the center of the screen, whichever image you have selected. 


The "bag" of images uploaded remains online for you and other to see. 


Supereasy to use. Ideal for sharing and reviewing image sets with people that need maximum ease of use and simplicity.


P.S.: While not officially advertised for this use, Feedbag.io acts as fantastic and quite reliable file converter for any .AI or .EPS file that you cannot view if you don't have access to a copy of Illustrator or Photoshop. You simply upload the .eps or .ai and in a matter of seconds you can see it finely displayed on your screen. From there you can capture it again and save it in your preferred file format. Very handy. 

 


Free to use.

Forms display well on any Internet connected device, and they are packed full of features that can be used to collect feedback, communicate, check for comprehension and best of all, teach.

You Are No Longer Allowed To Present

You Are No Longer Allowed To Present | E-learning arts | Scoop.it

Here are some reasons why your presentations are BAD!   We know that so many of you use programs like PowerPoint or Prezi because they have been around for a while, and it is what you know, but change is not always a bad thing, especially if that change can lead to presentations beyond your wildest imagination.

Gavin Meikle's curator insight, March 10, 3:02 AM

A (mostly) great post with some sound advice for better presentations.  Here's my take on it .....
 

Design

At the risk of upsetting all those wonderful Graphic Designers out there, I would recommend going easy on the fancy designs.   They are not essential.  What is essential  is a clear simple strategy with one idea per slide, minimal text, no bullet points (yes I mean it!) and clear simple pictures, graphs and diagrams to illustrate your verbal messages.
 

Content
Developing compelling content is important but try to avoid using a script when you deliver.    reading scripts leads to flat, lifeless delivery and makes it much harder to respond, "on the fly2 to your audience.  Instead use  a few cue cards with key points only or a simple mind map.  Either will keep you on track without restricting your ability to improvise in response to audience reaction.

 

Story Telling
To true. Stories are much more engaging that lists of facts or endless graphs.  Stories also create emotional engagement which is needed if you want the audience to be motivated to do something after the presentation. 

 

Humour
Yes it is powerful but it is risky too.   Telling jokes rarely works and can lead to all sorts of problems (poor timing, inappropriate content etc.)  Instead use gentle self deprecating humour.  Be willing to poke a little fun at yourself and the audience will warm to you. 

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, March 10, 7:43 AM

My take on good presentations:  1) Story 2) Content: Restrain your left brain 3) Design: the experience 4) Humor (optional).  Presenting starts with story and uses the visual design to reinforce and add new dimensions to your message. Design the experience, not the slides. Humor works if it's actually funny--not contrived. I've seen a lot that doesn't. Humor is optional.  If it comes naturally, great.  Focusing on story and image is mandatory.  Use serious restraint with putting words on your slides.  Words are processed by the rational, 'left-brain' which takes your audience out of any emotional experience and into thinking and linear processing.  Take them on a journey, don't give them a lecture.  If you feel compelled to give your audience words, give them a handout when you're done.

What a terrific HBR article about the power of storytelling for business. And it contains solid advice for how to make stories work for you as a strategic tool.


What caught my eye was the premise that researcher Keith Quesenberry was able to predict the most popular Superbowl ad based on who used a simple story structure. It did not matter what the content of the ad was -- what mattered is if it had a complete story structure.


In other words, if the ad told a story, it was the most popular among viewers.


There are other insights to gain from reading this article. Enjoy reading this piece!

, we need a new model for thinking about how to facilitate global connection for youth that takes into account people’s histories and cultures and the emergent relationships that are always rooted in particular ideological systems. To that end, I think we must begin with a focus on the local. I would argue that this work of global connectivity is radically and quintessentially local, rooted in communities, lived experiences, and cultural and individual histories. Connecting across these local meanings, ideas, people, and contexts in essence requires scaling up though various interconnections and relationships, facilitated of course by new mediating technologies
