Alex Grech's curator insight, October 9, 2013 4:18 PM

It's the first time I've taught undergraduates.  I've found myself stripping slides to the core message and trying to find visuals that can communicate that message quickly, simply and yet - resonate.  There is nothing as tough as trying to unclutter the mind and focus on what really needs to be said - as opposed to 'making a point' or simply 'showing off'.  This presentation is about the art of visuals, clear design, and keeping it 'stupidly simple'.

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.

Louise Robinson-Lay's curator insight, January 17, 2014 1:28 AM

While beautiful Powerpoint may seem like an oxymoron  this slideshow proves it is possible.

It always amazes me that despite being the world’s largest video library, YouTube is still blocked or banned in many educational institutions. As a resource for learning about almost anything, but particularly for language learning it is an incredibly valuable tool and a tool that many third party companies have started to build on and exploit to make its use easier and more engaging.

Oskar Almazan's curator insight, June 20, 3:09 AM
Many tools that can help educators exploit the learning potential of YouTube with a particular focus on English language learning. I hope you can enjoy these tools and if you do work in an institution where YouTube is still blocked perhaps you can use this article to help persuade the people responsible that the benefits of making the resource available far outweigh the manageable risks that it can create.
