Brain Science: Bursts—Creating Brief Training for Short Attention Spans by Art Kohn : Learning Solutions Magazine

Brain Science: Bursts—Creating Brief Training for Short Attention Spans by Art  Kohn : Learning Solutions Magazine | Educational Leadership Perspective | Scoop.it
Today’s learners have little tolerance for two-day lecture courses (or two-hour lectures, for that matter). In reaction,
many organizations are now wondering about micro-training: short bursts of training that fit into 10 minutes or less.
Is this reaction justified by claims that goldfish now have longer attention spans than people?

Habilidades necesarias para lograr una presentación exitosa con tu audiencia

Jean Luc lebrun's curator insight, June 9, 2014 4:46 PM

Behind these video doodles is an fun company: www.truscribe.com

What is interesting here is that the video is in perfect sync with the audio - this is why it is so powerful..

More critically, something is missing from the video: a summary. The author summarizes with "So there you have it, five things you need to know about people in order to give a better presentation", followed by a rapid zoom out revealing briefly ALL the pictures from the storyboard - too many and too fast to be of use as a memory prop.

Five may be a small number, but for our limited memory - it is huge. We have to remember five more or less disconnected ideas: 20 minute chunks, eye competes with ear, your speech is only a part of whole message (see nice screen illustration at time 3:36), call them to action, people imitate your feelings. It feels like a bullet list. The video could have brought back 5 key images corresponding to the 5 points to help anchor them in our memory.

This is why I recommend that the "take-away" slide, a.k.a. the conclusion or summary slide, refreshes people's memory by bringing back small pictures of the key visuals of the presentation next to the text points that they helped make. It does not matter if they are not fully readable, their role is simply to jog memory.

Whether you are an Educator, Principal, Manager, or in another role where you are a Leader, I believe that effective Assessment should be the driving force of instructional leadership. It should involve a) knowing what to teach, b) how to teach it, and c) Information on how to modify future instructional and leadership strategies.

Sacrifices of integrating 21st Century Technologies in the Classroom : Big Ideas in Education | Educational Leadership Perspective | Scoop.it

21st Century technologies are advancing at rapid speeds. The allure of technology in the 21st Century Classroom is increasing as well, along with the potential for technology to inadvertently transform the educational process. Therefore, we need to seriously examine the ethical ramifications of how we infuse technology into our classroom, and recognize that technology is merely a tool that can facilitate the process of education.
