How did the speaker capture theattention of the audience in his or her introduction? How did the speaker maintain the engagement of the audience throughout the speech?
He captured the attention of the audience through hiswisdom. His values and lifelessons growing up is what keep them interested. He later maintained theengagement of the audience by throwing in a few jokes or funny comments throughout his speech.
Evaluate the speaker in terms of dynamism from 1 (lowest) to 5 (highest). What could the speaker have done to increase his or her dynamism?
While evaluating the speaker and given his old age at the time of his speech I would give him a 3/5. Understanding that he was older when he gave the speech he was sitting the entire speech and they maybe due to his healthconditions. He also carried notes to help him keep on track. If he were muchyounger at the time of the speech this all may have been different.
What tips were used from Garr Reynolds or Nancy Duarte?
Coach Wooden stuck to his experiences and what his knowledge was when it came about success. Healways went back to “back when I was young my father” kinda story’s. He was a very wise and humble man.
What have you learned about delivery based upon watching your presenter?
I learned that know matter how old you may be, you still can get in front of acrowd and make a difference in someone’s life. I learned that even though his presentation wasn’t super exciting and interactive as some of the the otherpresenters, he still got the point across and the audience was still able to grasp what he wanted them to learn. After watching Coach Wooden’s TED presentation it reminded me of the stories we may have received from a grandpa or elderly person. It may have not been somethingthat started out interesting but by the time they were done you were able to grasp that and forever keep the knowledge that you learned from them.
Compare and contrast your speaker to Sir Ken Robinson from the two videos you watched(“Schools Kill Creativity” and “Changing Education Paradigms”)
Due to age and probably health. John Wooden’s presentation was completely different from Sir Ken Robinson for thefact that Ken was more active and mobile and as for Wooden he was sitting. I alsonoticed that Ken tried his best to keep the crowd in it and Wooden kind just gave you his presentation and thats it. Ken’sdelivered more of a comedic presentation so that he can keep it interesting. They both used jokes to get the crowdsattention however Robinson used more of them. Wooden also kept everything real he used real life examples and used a lot more of his life as the lesson.
