    Using The Podium! Using The Podium! Presentation Transcript

    • USING THE PODIUM!
      • AN IN DEPTH ANALYSIS OF SOMETHING REALLY SIMPLE.
    • What IS a Podium?
      • The masonry supporting a classical temple? ?
      • Yes, but not in this case.
      • A raised platform surrounding the arena of an ancient Roman amphitheater having on it the seats of privileged spectators?
      • Also true, but still not the definition we will be discussing today. ?
      • A small platform for the conductor of an orchestra, for a public speaker, etc. ?
      • BINGO! !!!!
    • PODIUMS: POSSIBLY MORE FUN THAN YOU CAN HANDLE
      • A podium (plural podia ) is a platform that is used to raise something to a short distance above its surroundings.
      • The use of a podium is a public speaking tradition.
      • It’s actually a rostrum, which is a synonym for lectern, a piece of furniture used for putting notes or the like on when giving a speech.
    • FAMOUS PODIUMS THROUGHTOUT HISTORY!
      • The most well known podium in the world is the podium used to honour medalists in the Olympics . In the Olympics a three level podium is used, the highest level in the centre holds the gold medalist, to their right is a somewhat lower one for the silver medalist. To the left of the gold medalist is an even lower platform for the bronze medalist. WOW!
    • When Should I Use a Podium?
      • Using a podium is a personal choice. You don’t have to use it if it makes you feel uncomfortable. Being made uncomfortable by inanimate objects may be an indication of larger problems. If you would rather move freely around the room to involve your audience more easily, GO FOR IT! If you need to use a stationary microphone or other podium accessories™ then a podium might be your best friend.
    • POSTURE AND PERSONAL PRESENTATION
      • Here are some tips on using the podium without being completely awkward.
      • Stand behind the podium, don't lean on it or slouch behind it.
      • If you use hand gestures, bring your gestures up to an appropriate level or people will wonder what you are doing with your hands.
      • Try not to grasp the podium -  place your hands on the podium in a natural, relaxed way.
      • If you have a water bottle or other non-presentation items with you, LEAVE THEM ALONE. Don’t touch everything a billion times or look through and shuffle all your papers like a noob.
    • PODIUM ACCESSORIES™
      • Slide projectors
      • Overhead projectors
      • LCD projectors
      • Possibly some kind of media cart?
      • Microphone
      • Computer
    • POWER POINT AT THE PODIUM
      • Use this procedure when you need a presentation on your laptop computer to appear on an external monitor or projection system.
    • Power Point and Podiums PART TWO
      • Connect the external display port on the laptop computer to the monitor or projection system, and turn on the projector.
      • For information about connecting external devices, see the documentation for your laptop computer.
      • Set your laptop computer display resolution to match the resolution of the projector system.
      • If you will be using audio in your presentation, connect the cable between your laptop computer and the projector, and test the volume by playing a sound file or part of your presentation.
      • THANKS, MICROSOFT.com!
    • Uh oh. I’m so confused!
      • OH WELL! If you can’t figure out how to set up your power point presentation, just ask someone to help you. Most people like to show off that they know more about something than someone else or at least they can get some personal satisfaction from having done something nice for someone else (re: KPP).
