Don’t do this; don’t do that! Yes, there are a number of “don’ts” connected with good presentations. If you keep these “don’ts” in mind, beyond any doubt your …

Some important points to consider and "don'ts" to remember to leave the best impression on your audience.

Rosemary Tyrrell, Ed.D.'s curator insight, June 21, 2015 7:49 PM

I heard all of these things at a recent conference! I'd like to add one to the list -- "I don't want to keep boring you." How about you don't bore me at all?

 

Is it time to dust off the old public speaking textbook and brush up on some speaking skills?

Carmen Chavez, Ph.D.'s curator insight, July 31, 2015 10:47 AM

Hmmm....again, some good things here, but much of this seems directed at business pitch-type presentations.  For example, this lists data-rich presentations as something you should avoid.  You need to FOCUS and EMPHASIZE data rich presentations.

I agree Andrew. Tools are tools and it's all about how you use them that counts.
Karen Dietz's comment, July 24, 2013 1:23 PM
Good question Thomas! I think it is an ongoing dance between learning good storytelling and then learning the tools for maximum impact.
Louise Robinson-Lay's curator insight, August 2, 2013 7:44 AM

recentlyrue recently I had to get students to use Powerpoint as the Internet connection was too slow to have them all work at once on other online presentation tools. After laying down some ground rules about effective use they amazed us with their creative responses. It is not the tool. It is how you use it. And how teachers plan for it!

WordPress Curation Workflow, Resources and Tips from Nathan Weller

Gaurav Pandey's curator insight, May 6, 2013 10:01 PM

Robin Good's insight:

 

 

If you are interested in what could be a good workflow and set of tools to use to curate content on your own WordPress blog, Nathan Weller has a must-read article for you.

 

In it, he dissects and explains the tools he uses to curate content on WordPress, from how he aggregates and browses RSS feeds, to how he filters, edits and actually curates the content of each post.

 

Interestingly his focus is on quality, not on having his site populated by lots of "somewhat relevant" content pulled in automatically by one of the many "content marketing"-oriented curation tools available today.

 

I think you will find several interesting ideas that you may have not considered on how to approach your curation workflow, let alone checking the several insightful comments at the end.

 

 

Lost of valuable information, resources, examples and advice. 8/10

Thank you so much Robin! This is good stuff!
Regina Torres's curator insight, January 24, 2014 10:39 AM

Nathan Weller alude al uso de dos bookmarklets para curar contenidos. Se trata de Feedly y Tabcloud, herramientas interesantes que sirven para curar contenidos. Y es que no necesitamos un pluggin increíble para curar contenidos en nuestro Wordpress, sino que estos bookmarklets pueden hacer la misma función incluso de una manera más eficaz.

Cam's comment, May 30, 2013 9:34 PM
I disagree Jane. It would be great if everything were able to be accessible to everyone, but that is simply not the reality. We can't homogenise visual art into an accessible form, simply because some people can't see the fine details. That would be as wrong as never considering visually impaired persons, for example.
