Prezi Guide: The 5 Essentials To Stop Your Audience Feeling Sick

Prezi Guide: The 5 Essentials To Stop Your Audience Feeling Sick | Writing mag | Scoop.it

Prezi is nothing if not divisive. Some people love it, some people hate it - I'm in neither of those camps. I find it very useful in some situations, but still use good old fashioned PowerPoint Slides for more than half the presentations I give. Prezi should be used for a reason.

Prezi is relatively new (it's been around since 2009), it's getting more
popular (there are around 40 million users now) and it's improving its
interface all the time. Some people accuse it of being style

Beyond PowerPoint & Keynote: The 20 Best Apps to Create and Share Presentations

Beyond PowerPoint & Keynote: The 20 Best Apps to Create and Share Presentations | Writing mag | Scoop.it

From school classrooms to Apple product launches, slideshow presentations have quickly become the standard accompaniment to lectures. You can't give a speech without a slideshow, it seems. And they all feel same. Presentations are dominated by Microsoft PowerPoint and Apple Keynote, apps that are all but omnipresent.

Mick D Kirkov's insight:

I appear under "Steampunk Fashion (?) Shared by
Int'l  " whereas the tweet I posted is this:

https://twitter.com/MichailKirkov/status/529216148349661184

 

and since this charming subject deserves it, I made another extension to the tweet here: 

https://twitter.com/MichailKirkov/status/529220657327136769

 

The "Gothesques" are as a matter of fact a trade mark (kind of "gothic and bourlesques"), but steampunk isn't.

 

The photo over by Alisa is not a righteous "steampunk" per se, anyway it is very near to the trend, being called "Map to Mordor" (Mordor is the mythical land in Lord of the Rings, where the hobbit Frodo had to dispose of the magical ring to bring peace to Middle Earth. If you search for an assonance rhyme to it, you cannot pass by "murder". There are numerous maps, e.g. on flickr https://www.flickr.com/search?text=Map%20to%20Mordor&sort=relevance )

More on Alisa here:

Professional infographic designers rely primarily on a core vector graphics software program to create their infographics designs. The main advantage is that all the icons, charts, images, illustrations, and data visualizations are treated as separate objects that can be easily moved, resized, overlapped, and rotated.

Getting students to create infographics and using them ourselves to present information are more than justifiable reasons for these kind of tools

Does Learning A Foreign Language Actually Pay Off?

Does Learning A Foreign Language Actually Pay Off? | Writing mag | Scoop.it
Mick D Kirkov's insight:

Nope, but yeah, in somehow terms. Behind the advertising for the self, "für die eigene Sache" of +Babbel you'll see - maybe - how difficult it is to create in your mouth the sequences of unaccustomed sounds, i.e. how many times you should have repeated before and how many talents you should possess for to really compose a word in a sentence in a foreign language and then speak it off in real time. So be musical and very quickly calculating in each your step and then try it. But speaking a language or two besides yours remains for the poetry of one's own life, not for the calculating of its ROI. Mit andern Worten, es lohnt sich nicht - put in other words, it doesn't pay off, иначе говоря,  не воздастся оно тебе сторицей, не оплатится...

The comments down are a real pleasure to read, e.g. by Sam Hill • 18 days ago  

Think of it like this... You have a door to your home it is necessary for you to enter. You personally monitor who enters when you are home. When away you rely on locks. You may have an alarm system. You keep your valuables and money at a bank, who relies on better locks and alarms. Now for the honest awful truth. Locks, alarms, and laws do not deter the dishonest they may slow them down a bit but they do not stop them. The only thing those items do is keep honest people honest. The internet is no different. If you are to have access so do I. Nothing guarantees that when you drive to the store you will return safely, accidents, attacts, robberies, happen to someone every second. Risk-reward, life is a gamble, you pays yer money and yers takes yer chance.
