Transcript

  • 1. Lesson Slides and Virtual Classrooms. Do we really need them?
  • 2. Overview Thoughts on Lesson Slides. Thoughts on Webmeetings. Thoughts on users.
  • 3. Slides come from the corporate world They are not “educational natives”. Slides are a marketing instrument. → More information in less time.
  • 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. 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. 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. Webmeetings come from the corporate world They are not “educational natives”. The teacher is a “presenter”. → Webmeetings assume a certain infrastructure.
  • 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. (a)synchronous Learning Lectures Seminars 101
  • 10. Lectures 101 Seminars
  • 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. 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. 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.
