Lesson Slides and Virtual Classrooms. Do we really need them? - Kirsten Winkler

  1. 1. Lesson Slides and Virtual Classrooms. Do we really need them?
  2. 2. Overview Thoughts on Lesson Slides. Thoughts on Webmeetings. Thoughts on users.
  3. 3. Slides come from the corporate world They are not “educational natives”. Slides are a marketing instrument. → More information in less time.
  4. 4. “There are no compelling results to prove or disprove that PowerPoint is more effective for learner retention than traditional presentation methods.” “Students retained 15% less information delivered verbally by the lecturer during PowerPoint presentations, but they preferred PowerPoint presentations over traditional presentations.” Savoy, April (2009) Information retention from PowerPoint and traditional lectures
  5. 5. Problems Teachers don't know how to use PowerPoint. → Teachers tend to use slides as notepad. The slides are finished and only presented. → Less interaction / movement bores the students.
  6. 6. Death by PowerPoint Angela R. Garber ● PowerPoint is a convenient prop for poor speakers. ● It can reduce complicated messages to simple bullet points. ● It elevates style over substance. → These three things contribute to its popularity. Wright, J. (2009) A matter of presentation.
  7. 7. Webmeetings come from the corporate world They are not “educational natives”. The teacher is a “presenter”. → Webmeetings assume a certain infrastructure.
  8. 8. Problems Students / teachers have no high speed internet access. Students / teachers PC is not up to date. Students / teachers are overstrained. → Bad experiences. → Loss of students / clients and teachers.
  9. 9. (a)synchronous Learning Lectures Seminars 101
  10. 10. Lectures 101 Seminars
  11. 11. Digital Natives Digital Settlers Digital Immigrants ● Digital Natives born after 1980. ● Digital Settlers have comparable skills like Natives, still accent. ● Digital Immigrants have a heavy accent. → There are more Settlers and Immigrants than Natives.
  12. 12. Conclusion Problems: Infrastructure Formation Solutions: Offer bypass solutions. → Use technology that works today and implement new features only when the majority can use them. Train the teachers. → They will guide the students.
  13. 13. Do we really need them? Today on July 27 2009 I say: “No, not really. I can live without them.” BUT As soon as the problems are solved Virtual Classrooms will change education. Maybe not tomorrow, maybe not this year but we need to be ready.
