Here is what I like about this article: the concrete examples of stuff most people say in a presentation that doesn't work, and then rewrites to show how to storify that statement, or share a story instead.


Delivering great presentations takes lots of practice and delivering occasional duds. Yet if you follow the advice here in this article, you can nail it every single time. (**Secret: the same tips apply to creating awesome blogs)


I really like the example of how to turn a statistic into a story. After incorporating these tips, I hope all your presentations are award-winning!

OK, OK, one more about the presentations... it would be one plus more than needed if this presentation-business were not so difficult (allegedly it's one of the greatest fear to speak publicly - I can attest this...:-)))... So, it is a short one and a good one...:-)))

Here's what I like about this article by Nick Morgan -- it focuses on specific ways to engage the audience when you give a presentation.


Yeah! It's rare to find an article that mentions both storytelling (tip #1) and how to bring your audience into your talk.


All the advice shared here is right on. Go ahead and play with these and notice the difference they make!

Chuck Devers's curator insight, June 5, 8:38 AM

Engaging stories are one of many different ways to pique student interest and also engage families of the students to help bring support.

Carol Sanford's curator insight, June 27, 2013 4:01 PM

This is related to the brain's need to connect the absract and concrete. Innovation, learning and thinking anything new,  are all made possible by having an idea and making sense of it in our real lives. Storytelling is the same. The ideas in it need to be connected to concreteness, therefor a name, for it to 'sink in'.

Karen Dietz's comment, June 29, 2013 3:03 PM
So true Carol! I very much appreciate the comment and insight.
Kim Zinke (aka Gimli Goose)'s curator insight, June 29, 2013 7:13 PM

If a concept is too big, we can become overwhelmed.  It's easier to see how we could help one person, but it can be hard to see how we could help dozens, thousands, or millions.

 

Fellow curator Karen Deitz's comments (see below) summed up this article beautifully.

"One of the biggest mistakes I see that corporations, non-profits, and individuals make when sharing their business stories is they talk about 'a person' or 'a group' without giving them names and characteristics. In other words, whoever they are talking about are not identifiable.

 

If we don't have a name to hang on to, we can't connect. We want to connect with people. Without a name, 'a person' or 'a group' is just a concept."

Visual Learning In The Classroom (Any Classroom Flipped or Traditional) - Edudemic | immersive media | Scoop.it

Humans thrive on visual stimuli, and interaction. We don’t want to hear about the latest tablet, or even read an article about it. We want to see it for ourselves.

 

More than that, we want to experience it for ourselves. We want to press all the buttons, test out the apps, and personalize every feature. Which experience teaches you more about the tablet—your conversation with someone who told you about it? Or the time you tried it for yourself? The latter, undoubtedly. Our strongest memories are created in the moments where we are actively participating. Humans are active learners by nature.

Although this article is aimed at the traditional classroom it also applies to blended/flipped and fully online learning environments.

Blog Content: The Longer the Better. Good news for biz storytelling | immersive media | Scoop.it
Since Google dropped the Hummingbird patch, there’s been a new secret ingredient to getting noticed on the Internet: longer content equals higher rankings. Google indicated that content totaling 2,000 words versus 500 or less will rank higher on search engines. We here at Express Writers were skeptical at first.

The end of succinct at last...

Lynn O'Connell for O'Connell Meier's curator insight, February 26, 2:20 AM

IMHO, your content should be the length it needs to be to tell your story -- no shorter, no longer.  Don't be afraid of long posts as the people who are interested WILL read to the end. (And they are the ones you want to reach!) On the flip side, don't pad posts just to reach an arbitrary Google SEO number.

Prof. Stefan Heijnk's curator insight, February 28, 2:21 AM

Good news for longform addicts. :-)

Great piece! Really difficult to change the habit of some teachers and students who like to be handed the photocopied piece of research though. Would love to see more of this!
John Rudkin's comment, February 26, 2013 3:16 AM
I has to change though. The continuation of the tardy old ways has to be swept aside. That approach can have its place - there needs to be a blend (of course), but attitudes need to change.
Deborah Owen's curator insight, February 26, 2013 9:19 AM

Help students become more engaged in their learning by directing their own learning, at least to some extent.
