    • Why online presentation tools?
      Tools available via any web-connected computer
      New way to express creativity (including audiovisuals)
      Gets students using new technologies to help make them 21st century learners
    • New way to look at Presentations
      We often think of PowerPoint for presentations, but the web offers alternatives to the paid software:
      Google Presentation
      Glogster EDU
      So many more…HUGE list at cool tools for schools: http://cooltoolsforschools.wikispaces.com/Presentation+Tools
    • Google Presentation
      Like PowerPoint, but online
      You already have a Google Docs account – this is where you find Google Presentation
      Thousands of templates available from Google and Google users
    • Google Presentation
    • Template Gallery has templates for:
      Created by Google and by Google users
    • What is Screencasting
      Digital recording of the computer screen, with or without audio narration
      Sometimes called a video capture or video capturing
      Very useful for when you need to show a process, like:
      Using the library catalog or a database
      Using a certain website
      Using software, like Word
      Doing a certain process, like working through a math problem
    • Why screencasting for You?
      Showing a process rather than telling how to do it can sometimes be more helpful, particularly for students who learn better visually and not through lecture
      Can help with repetitiveness – instead of telling a process over and over, maybe a screencast can help?
    • Why screencasting for students?
      Can help students with these skills:
      Planning & research
      Synthesize & evaluate the information
      Script writing – introduction, body, conclusion
      Delivery of the presentation – how do they get the process across in clear, concise ways?
      How well does presentation stick to topic
      Technical production
      Responsible use of music and/or images
      If part of a group assignment - teamwork
    • By the end of MILI you need to…
      Make a presentation or a screencast with one of these tools to show what you learned in MILI and how you can apply it either with students or for your own professional development
      This is the final, required project
      You will show your presentations during our last month’s meeting
    • Your presentation can be about…
      A tool or two that you like and how you plan on using it/them for yourself or with students
      A tool or concept and how it’s helped you better understand the new web 2.0 world
      Something you’ve already created or used and what it’s done for your professional life or your classroom
    • Presentations in May
      These presentations or screencasts must be completed by our May meeting – you will be showing them then
      Presentations can be short – 3-5 minutes would be just fine
      This is to reflect and be positive and talk about something you liked that will continue to help you in the future
    • before our meeting
      Explore Google Presentation and write a blog post about it
      Check out the other sites I mention – come to the session with some questions about them
      Write some blog posts about your thoughts or experiences in MILI – many people are pretty low when it comes to blog posts. You should be in the 30s now or close to 30.
      Yes, some interactions in the Forums and/or replying to other blog posts counts, but if you have been doing a lot of that, you should still have at least 20 of your own blog posts.
    • Next meetings
      Monday, April 11 – Sanford
      Tuesday, April 12 – South High
      Thursday, April 21 – Southwest High
