PowerPoint Slide Design: How Simple is Too Simple?

PowerPoint Slide Design: How Simple is Too Simple? | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it

All of the books, all of the blogs, all of the top Slideshare presentations on slide design make this common plea: simplify.  But how simple is too simple? I had this conversation with a non-training...

6 Simple Ways to Accelerate your Learning with Mind Mapping

6 Simple Ways to Accelerate your Learning with Mind Mapping | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it

Learning to learn remains a powerful and necessary skill in every field of activity.  In addition to this skill, imagine that your learning can be accelerated, your mind challenged and your efficiency improved.

 

Create presentations:

One of the most important roles of presentations is for you to practice your creativity and understanding on a specific topic or subject.  When you are able to present your own perspective on a specific matter, your learning experience becomes extremely powerful.  You become the owner of that information, gaining ownership over the delivered content.  
As you get yourself ready to make your knowledge known remember to:...

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 Kay 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,

9 Ways to Improve the Signal to Noise Ratio on Twitter - Brian Solis

9 Ways to Improve the Signal to Noise Ratio on Twitter - Brian Solis | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it

Yes it's a fact... we live in an overloaded information stream! Brian Solis gives us an interesting point of view about this matter. [note mg]

 

Even at 250 million Tweets per day in addition to the updates across Facebook, Google+, Pinterest, and every other feed that we willfully subscribe to, information overload is in of itself a fallacy. But the feeling the overload of information is very real and a reflection of our inability to pull the levers necessary to decrease noise and improve signal. Doing so, requires some very blatant actions that don’t simply reduce the volume of the information we don’t care to see as often, it requires disconnecting from human beings. Whether we’re severing ties with individuals or those representing an organization we once supported, it’s emotional. It’s an action that carries an element of guilt knowing that at some point, our action will cause an incremental blow to the psyche of the individual we’re unfollowing.

 

I know…so what right?

Blogging Tips A-Z: G for Goals

Every successful blogger I’ve spoken to had several failed blogs behind them before they finally honed in on their blogging goals and set up a blog that would achieve those goals.

 

Like most bloggers I set up my first blog as an experiment. I had a vague idea of what I wanted to write about and a secret goal for my blogging.

 

Well, we all want our blogs to become bestselling books and get made into movies starring Meryl Streep or Julia Roberts don’t we?

 

But I wasn’t just hoping to kick start my travel writing career and gain worldwide recognition for my writing. I had a few other goals too:

 

because I’d recently moved from Costa Rica to Australia I wanted to share personal stories so family and friends could follow our adventures; because I’ve lived overseas in eight different countries and travelled to many more I wanted to inspire and inform other women so they could travel more or move overseas too; I wanted my blog to be a fun creative outlet and keep it separate from my web design and web copy writing business.

Can you see a problem here? There are a few of them.
