Images for presentations: alternatives to stock photos | Serious Play | Scoop.it

You’ve seen them before, fake and generic photos for which the presenter didn’t bother to search for more than 10 seconds. Stock Photos reveal you are an amateur and/or careless presenter, and you shouldn’t use them under any circumstance (other than to make fun of them).
So how to illustrate your presentation the right way?

Skills Converged > Positive Appreciation, Affirmation and Praise

Skills Converged > Positive Appreciation, Affirmation and Praise | Serious Play | Scoop.it

In this exercise, a group of people get to acknowledge each other’s actions and appreciate the impact of such actions on their own lives. People tend to avoid praising despite the fact that it is incredibly motivating. In addition, people also tend to shrug off praise as a way of being humble or they may feel they need to be polite rather than boasting about their actions. Both of these lead to a missed opportunity on boosting a person’s self-esteem. This exercise provides an opportunity to do this systematically and in a safe environment.

Electronic portfolio | Wikiwand

Electronic portfolio | Wikiwand | Serious Play | Scoop.it
An electronic portfolio [1] is a collection of electronic evidence assembled and managed by a user, usually on the Web. Such electronic evidence may include inputted text, electronic files, images, multimedia, blog entries, and hyperlinks. E-portfolios are both demonstrations of the user's abilities and platforms for self-expression, and, if they are online, they can be maintained dynamically over time.
