No notes for slide
  • Title slide
    Introduce the topic, this is the most critical learning of the weekend, the rest of the weekend is applying these strategies that we’ll cover in the next 3 and half hours
  • What is it?
    Why Use It
    Consolidates or reinforces information
    Helps you assess student understanding
    Engages students, keeps them “on their toes”
    Why Isn’t It Good All the Time
    Some students aren’t comfortable responding
    Can embarrass or centre out students
    Might make it look like you don’t really know the material or aren’t planned
    Can easily get sidetracked into off topic discussions
  • Introduction:
    Common fears – Round Robin activity – 2 teams – 2 winners face off – declare champion!
  • What you have all voluntarily chosen to do as a “hobby” is one of most people’s greatest fears!
  • The 6 P’s to Overcoming Fear
    Purpose - most important, what is your main goal for a particular lesson (don’t think big picture, break the day into smaller chunks and define your purpose for each)
    Planning - have a structure, clearly share it with students, STICK to your TIMELINE
    Preparation – have materials ready
    Practice – before a mirror, to your wife, in an empty room
    Performance – be an actor, the classroom is your stage, use it all, be big, get yourself “pumped up” for a clinic like you do for a big game
    Postmortem – be honest, self reflect, get better next time
    Strategies used in this activity: DIRECT
  • What is it?

    Why Isn’t It Good All the Time
    Some students aren’t comfortable responding
    Can embarrass or centre out students
    Might make it look like you don’t really know the material or aren’t planned
    Can easily get sidetracked into off topic discussions
  • Have students record Power Point Pitfalls while watching
  • Ask, “How can you tell when someone’s nervous”?
    Elicit responses
    Discuss ways to disguise your fear from your audience:
    Smile – be friendly, learn names, mingle before your presentation, engage your audience
    Body Language – open palms, move around … but with a purpose (just like an umpire on the field), use proximity to students to your advantage, don’t be tied to your technology, avoid fidgeting
    Voice – avoid ums, ahs … silence is golden! – what can you vary in your voice (pitch, volume, speed), project to back of room
    Appearance – look professional, you’ll feel more confident
  • Visual Aid Rules:
    Power Point/Overheads
    – one idea per slide, vivid imagery, as few words as possible – stress that the PowerPoint and the presenter are a team, the PowerPoint shouldn’t make sense on it’s own
    Never walk infront of the screen, never turn your back to the audience
    Free yourself from the computer with a remote device
    Don’t read from the screen

  • Power Point Keyboard Shortcuts
    B – Black screen – toggle to return
    W – White screen – toggle to return
    F5 – start presentation from beginning
    Arrow keys – move forward or backwards – note that N (next) and P (previous) also work
    F1 – access the full list of keyboard shortcuts
    # and Enter – go to a specific slide
