Presentain - Activate your audience with interactive presentations | Presentations Matter | Scoop.it
Presentain helps speakers engage and grow their audiences. You use smartphone as a clicker and audience can connect to your presentation using their devices. They can ask you questions, participate in polls, send you follow-up requests, share your slides and more. While you present Presentain records your voice so when the presentation is over you can publish the slidecast (presentation slides with voice-over) and start growing your online audience.

New version of Presentain. This service helps for audience engagement. If students use their tablets or smartphones at lectures, is a really good choice. Initial free pack (5 presentations, 7 slidecasts, 3 polls).

This is a nice SlideShare piece that takes a complex subject and boils it down into easy-to-understand principles that anyone can use to create better visual stories.


Check it out. It's one of the better pieces I've found on the topic and includes some information I'd not seen before. Like the Taxonomy of Visual Content which covers different content in terms of cost, interactivity, and format. Very helpful! So is the slide going over the elements of successful visual content. The post also tackles how to get started.


Grab this and go!

Great overview of visual content from Column Five. What is visual content, what's the ROI, why does it matter?

Stephen Dale's curator insight, June 4, 2014 7:44 AM

The Taxonomy of Visual Content slide is particularly useful.

Kathy Hansen's curator insight, July 26, 2013 7:29 PM

[Disclaimer: "Kathy's Insight" is usually simply another pithy excerpt from the Scooped article] 

The key focus is on choice points: moments in our lives when values are formed because of a need to choose in the face of great uncertainty. When did you first care about being heard, or learn that you were concerned about the issue on which you want to take action? Why? When did you feel you had to do something about it? Why did you feel you could? What were the circumstances? What specific choice did you make?

 
Hans Heesterbeek's curator insight, July 30, 2013 1:44 AM

Nice article, I likes especially the graph. I choose the emotional way, I think most storytellers will. Getting people engaged that i what it is all about and doing that in a honest and for me authentic way. Some nice tips for leaders and how to get started. 

Jacqueline Farrington's curator insight, June 30, 2014 12:32 PM

Personal narrative is a key tool in helping to form one's leadership identity - the foundation of executive presence.  Executive presence is much more than simply "looking, sounding and behaving" like a leader. For all leaders, but especially for women and multi-culturals, it must begin with identifying oneself as a leader and understanding the values that led to leadership. Excellent article on how storytelling can begin to do that.

Never been absolutely happy with slideshare.  It does everything it should, but somehow doesn't 'shine'.  I wonder whether SlideJar will be any better.  It kind of looks better, but unless it can get some heavy support....quickly, I am not really sure it will catch on, but I wish it well

Be suspicious -- very suspicious -- of stories

Be suspicious -- very suspicious -- of stories | Presentations Matter | Scoop.it
Like all of us, economist Tyler Cowen loves a good story. But in this intriguing talk, he asks us to step away from thinking of our lives -- and our messy, complicated irrational world -- in terms of a simple narrative.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, January 26, 1:54 PM

Want to start your week off right? Then watch this irreverent video full of truth about storytelling. You will laugh, your eyebrows will raise, and you will periodically nod your head in agreement. OR -- you'll get cranky.


Economist Tyler Cowen has a few things to teach us about storytelling. For example: life is messy and today we treat stories like Mr. Clean -- tidy ways to organize ourselves into a series of 7 little narrative boxes. Ouch! But true.


I like this guy. He calls a spade a spade. Life is messy. Storytelling is messy. Storytelling as a practice is full of contradictions, ethical conundrums, along with rich and deeply meaningful experiences. 


Don't fall into the trap of simplistic storytelling. Get real. Get honest. Get aware. Run to listen to this 16.5 minute video with practical advice at the end. It will enrich your life and your storytelling.

This is a relatively short article with a powerful message -- stories are phenomenal ways to learn about others, receive feedback, and then be able to take meaningful action based on what you hear.


The setting here is patient stories in healthcare. Yet the principle holds true for any organization. Great points are made about how these storied feedback loops have made huge differences in several organizations.


I think your time will be well spent reading this post -- not only to understand the feedback dynamics available through story sharing, but also in giving you ideas about how and why to apply this activity to your organization.
