12 Presentation Hooks Used By the Best TED Presenters

12 Presentation Hooks Used By the Best TED Presenters | CPD for British International Schools (Teaching Staff) | Scoop.it
“Today, you will learn something that will add 10 years to your life.”

“20 years from now, your job won’t exist.”

“Did you know that more people have access to a mobile phone than a toilet?”

Presentation starters like these are key to grabbing your audience’s attention and making the most of the time allotted to you.

Instead of thanking the audience, making an unrelated joke or apologizing for a technical issue, why not dive right into the subject matter with a gripping statement or thought-provoking question?

To help you craft your own killer presentation starters, we’ve sorted through some of the most popular TED talks in history and created this list of the most effective ways to start a presentation.

A little empathy among colleagues goes a long way

A little empathy among colleagues goes a long way | CPD for British International Schools (Teaching Staff) | Scoop.it

To demonstrate more empathy in the workplace, you can:

Make sure you are listening to others. Be sure to get feedback from others regarding how good of a listener you really are.Listen without interrupting. Pay attention to what others are saying and to their nonverbal behaviors and cues.Ask questions, then listen if you are trying to understand why someone is struggling at work or has poor performance.Spend time getting to know those you don’t like or are very different from you. As Abraham Lincoln said, “I don’t like that man, so I must get to know him.”Read up on emotional intelligence and take an assessment on your EQ and empathy.At meetings, ask colleagues to share how they are doing both personally and professionally.Keep the focus on them. Use phrases to show you are listening to them rather than sympathetic statements that seem to focus on yourself — e.g., “you seem to be trying to figure out what to do next” rather than “I always do XYZ when I am not sure.”Use reflecting comments — “it sounds like you are worried about ...” — rather than providing immediate advice, such as “this is what you should do now.”

 

Joyce E. A. Russell is the senior associate dean at the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business.

Teachers as Learners: 6 Great Professional Development Ideas | Edudemic | CPD for British International Schools (Teaching Staff) | Scoop.it
Just like the differentiated lessons they teach to meet students’ individual needs, teachers need to learn strategies in PD arranged for their individual interests and needs. Differentiated PD isn’t a new idea. Many administrators already ask teachers what their professional goals are and what the teacher will do to meet those goals. The teacher is observed in class and given suggestions to help align her practice to her goals. But differentiated PD should go beyond teacher goals; it should be an experience that gives educators new ways of thinking about their practice through a meaningful experience. We’ve compiled a list of unique ideas that help individualize the PD experience for teachers.

It's amazing how many technologies are available to teachers. It's amazing what all the Google forms can do. I may have to write a blog post to go over those many features. You can almost turn Google forms into a full-fledged learning platform along with some of their other tools. And the best part is most of them are free. I just wrote a similar post on the learning apps available, but now I realize that article is not complete.
