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.

Susan Daniels's curator insight, January 13, 2014 9:30 AM

This is a PowerPoint presentation that would have sent my former employers into shock. They had no imagination whatsoever. However, Eugene Cheng clearly has wonderful artistic skills and knows how to present them. In addition, he clearly has a nice budget to work with. These kind of beautiful graphics don't come at low price. I thoroughly enjoyed glancing through this presentation and plan to use it as inspiration for future projects.

 

Warmly,

Susan Daniels

10 Things That I Would Uninvent in Education

10 Things That I Would Uninvent in Education | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it

I‘ve had extra time to think over the past couple of weeks. Give me enough flex time, and my mind wanders into thought experiments and musing about education questions and possibilities. This time, thoughts focused upon the idea of un-inventing something. I talk and write about inventions and innovations in education all the time. What about the opposite? That led me to ask the simple question. If I could uninvent in education, what ten inventions would be at the top of my list? If I could go back in time and redirect from the adoption of an invention that dominates contemporary education, which ones would I choose? Below are my tentative answers.


Univent Letter GradesUninvent Credit Hours / the Carnegie Unit / Seat TimeUninvent Bubble TestsUninvent Standard Grade LevelsUninvent Diplomas and DegreesUninvent Common Honor Society CriteriaUninvent the Teacher ClassroomUninvent Standardized TestsUninvent Regional AccreditationUninvent TextbooksConclusion

Of course, I can’t uninvent these ten, and I’m not intending to spend my life trying to eradicate them. Yet, I’m also not going to invest my time and energy in developing them. The most promising practices, models, frameworks and concepts in education today do not depend upon or support any of these ten. As such, if we simply feed and support the good stuff, perhaps we will find that many of thse inventions will find their way into the international museum of the history of education.
