SHE KEPT THE AUDIENCE INTERESTED BY GIVINGSTATISTICS AND ALSO USING HUMOR IN STUDIES DONE.
Thou Shall Reveal Thy Curiosity and Thy Passion.
Ms. Mcgonigal constantly reminded the audiencethat she has a passion for making games and made games based off of real life situations to see how well people would do.
On a scale of 1-5 I would give Ms. Mcgonigal a 4.
I feel Ms. Mcgonigal could have touched on the moreinteresting points in her speech and projected her voice a bit more.
• When comparing Jane McGonigal to Sir Ken Robinson. Sir Robinson tends to get his message out more clearly than what Ms. Mcgonigal does.• Sir Ken Robinson’s idea of restructuring the entire worlds education system and the idea of sedating children who are restless, seems to be a more effective and less cost effective course of action.• Ms. Mcgonigal’s idea of having people play 3 billion hours a week of online games, would require most people to find the time to play games, and figure out what the message is behind those games in order to fulfill her dream of saving the world by people playing video games.
• The way Ms. Mcgonigal uses her voice during presentation is completely different than the way Sir Ken Robinson uses his.• Sir Robinson projects his voice better and also uses life stories that have a funny side to them.• Ms. Mcgonigal tends to use the funny side of the studies that have been done in order to to keep the audience drawn in, Ms. Mcgonigal also doesn’t project her voice as well.
• Tips I can give to my classmates are to speak up and project your voice when speaking.• Posture will help your voice carry and will come from your diaphragm more easily.• Eye contact will help your audience maintain interest as well as making them feel like your speech is directed towards them.• Practice makes perfect and will make giving your speech easier if you know what you are going to be saying.
