Why Khan Academy Is The Wrong Answer

Why Khan Academy Is The Wrong Answer | tefler for life | Scoop.it

Popular efforts to improve education are focusing on the wrong problem. Millions of dollars and hours of innovation are being spent on improving how we deliver content in an era when content matters less and how we interact with it matters more.

Lou Salza's comment, November 28, 2012 4:28 PM
In education there as many questions and answers as there are children. Kahn Academy is not the wrong answer. Neither is it the right answer. It is ONE answer to the question: How can we increase access to content and information for students and adults who want to learn?

Siete referencias en tu presentación para crear un vínculo emocional con tu audiencia

Siete referencias en tu presentación para crear un vínculo emocional con tu audiencia | tefler for life | Scoop.it

Guy Kawasaki nos cuenta en su último libro El arte de cautivar: Cómo se cambian los corazones, las mentes y las acciones, cómo los grandes ponentes profesionales repiten la misma presentación una y otra vez, haciendo sentir a la audiencia que es la primera vez que la dan. ¿Cuál es la clave? La personalización. Aunque repitas mil veces la misma presentación ante mil audiencias distintas, asegúrate de cambiar en cada ocasión una parte de la misma: la introducción. Crea en los momentos iniciales una conexión emocional con cada audiencia introduciendo algo específico para ella. Sorpréndela con algo que no imaginaba que podrías conocer sobre ella.

Vincula emocionalmente tu presentación a cada audiencia específica

El gran maestro jedi de las presentaciones, Jerry Weissman, propone en su libro Presenting to Win (en el primer puesto en la clasificación de mejores libros de presentaciones), utilizar los siguientes siete tipos de vínculos con la audiencia:

1 Referencias directas

Antes de tu presentación, mézclate con la audiencia, habla con varias personas, pregúntales sus nombres, indaga en sus inquietudes y necesidades. Posteriormente, incorpora lo aprendido a tu presentación.

2 Referencias mutuas

Investiga a tu audiencia para encontrar conexiones: personas, empresas, organizaciones, experiencias que tenéis en común. Menciona luego estas conexiones durante momentos escogidos de tu presentación.

3 Preguntas

Durante tu presentación hazle preguntas a tu audiencia: encuestas sencillas; invitaciones a compartir ideas, reacciones o historias; indagaciones sobre sus necesidades; etc.

4 Contemporización

Haz referencia a eventos o sucesos que han ocurrido hoy mismo y que sean relevantes para tu tema y para tu audiencia.

5 Localización

Siempre que tenga un significado especial para la audiencia, prepara referencias específicas al local del evento, o al barrio, o a la ciudad, o a algún edificio o lugar emblemático, o incluso a un lugareño famoso.

6 Datos

Encuentra información específica relacionada con tu mensaje y que lo apoye y potencie. Cuanto más cercana a la audiencia, mejor. Y si es nueva para tu audiencia, quedarán impresionados además de complacidos.

7 Gráfico de apertura personalizado

La técnica favorita de Guy Kawasaki: Comienza con una fotografía de algo que te encantó relacionado con tu audiencia: puede ser el lugar, la empresa, un producto, la comida, un monumento, ¡o la propia audiencia!

Los vínculos emocionales a la audiencia harán que tus presentaciones recuperen el frescor cada vez aunque las repitas mil veces.

Blogging is a really important tool to help with literacy skills. Give it a try.

Denis Lundie's curator insight, January 23, 2015 7:18 AM

Writing for the web, in all forms, is an essential communication skill. All languages should teach the techniques and rules that apply to writing for the web.
