Teaching Metacognition: How Students Think Is Key To High Achievement

Teaching Metacognition: How Students Think Is Key To High Achievement | higher ed and the online connection | Scoop.it

"A few years ago, I came across some interesting research by cognitive psychologist Ronald T. Kellogg. He claimed that the mark of an expert writer is not years of practice or a hefty vocabulary, but rather an awareness of one’s audience. This made sense to me, and I wondered if it were true in other disciplines as well."

Habilidades necesarias para lograr una presentación exitosa con tu audiencia

Jean Luc lebrun's curator insight, June 9, 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.
