What tips were used from Garr Reynolds or NancyDuarte?Dr. Brown was very passionate about her speech and informative. Sheincorporates some of her own experiences in her speech.
What have you learned about delivery based uponwatching your presenter?Dr. Brown was direct and straight to the point. She had a goal to deliverher message and she didn’t go off course during her speech. I found thatsome of the speeches I watched while trying to make my selection forthe project, got off topic.
Compare and contrast your speaker to Sir Ken Robinsonfrom the two videos youwatched (“Schools Kill Creativity” and “ChangingEducation Paradigms”)
The main difference is how Dr. Brown is direct and straight to the point. Dr.Brown and Sir Ken Robinson have two totally different styles in their delivery.
Sir Robinson is quite as direct, he uses comedy more than Dr. Brown.They both are very passionate about their work.
What tips can you give your classmates on delivery fortheir upcoming speeches basedONLY on your TED Talk?I would tell classmates to be prepared and practice. Most of the speakers onTED have been conducting speeches for years. They haveexperience, something most of us do not have yet. The more we practicespeeches, the more we will feel comfortable and the better our speeches willbe.
