Alright, time for me to switch it up a bit. I know much of what I write here has been in rather a formal voice – some might say wordy or stodgy! :-) So I thought I’d pop in this small post which is similar in theme to this previous post.
I decided to put in video format. It’s short. Less than seven minutes.
(Oh yes, in deference to accuracy, many of the examples I use are similes not metaphors!) How’s that Adam? ;)
Have you ever tried the Pecha Kucha format with your students? It’s awesome. I got the idea originally from Garr Reynold’s book – Presentation Zen. It’s very difficult but has some excellent benefits. The format is basically 20 slides/20 seconds and they should auto-advance. The slides should be well-designed – mostly graphical and so aimed at the right brain. The ‘speech’ for the left.
