Alex Grech's curator insight, October 9, 2013 4:18 PM

It's the first time I've taught undergraduates.  I've found myself stripping slides to the core message and trying to find visuals that can communicate that message quickly, simply and yet - resonate.  There is nothing as tough as trying to unclutter the mind and focus on what really needs to be said - as opposed to 'making a point' or simply 'showing off'.  This presentation is about the art of visuals, clear design, and keeping it 'stupidly simple'.

Linda Dougherty's curator insight, October 12, 2013 10:14 AM

Have started showing students during Google presentation tutorials how to outline their presentations like they always do with those bulleted lines on the slides.  Then take those sentences, change them into titles, and put one title on each slide. Select one image per slide. If needed, add URL links. Add the works cited for the image in tiny print at the bottom of the slide. Move those outlined bulleted points to the note section or toss into a document to print out for a group presenetation.

 

No more slides crowded with text and 4 images! No more students sleeping in the classroom while their classmates read from the Smartboard.

Louise Robinson-Lay's curator insight, January 17, 2014 1:28 AM

While beautiful Powerpoint may seem like an oxymoron  this slideshow proves it is possible.

Technology has a lot to answer for: killing old businesses, destroying the middle class, Buzzfeed. Technology in the form of the internet is especially villainous, having been accused of everything from making us dumber (paywall) to aiding dictatorships.

All References to Climate Change Have Been Deleted From the White House Website

Donald Trump immediately deleted Barack Obama's lengthy climate change information page.
Ken Morrison's insight:
I try to avoid politics except when directly embedded with technological or media changes.  Several well-respected, not-partisan tech podcasts have mentioned this potential new story lately. It appears that it was a high priority for the new administration.  Be  sure to read the whole article before getting too concerned, but this is a topic to watch.

Want to resist the post-truth age? Learn to analyze photos like an expert would | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

"“When photography was invented,” photo historian Vicki Goldberg once said, “it was thought to be an equivalent to truth. It was truth with a capital T.” But as viewers quickly learned, seeing isn’t always believing. Even in the early history of photography, hoaxes like the Cottingley fairies taught people to question the validity of the images they saw. Today, we’re well aware that photos can be digitally altered—which means that the public trusts the authority of photos, including journalistic images, a whole lot less."
