7 Things You Should Know About Next-Generation Presentation Tools | EDUCAUSE - 0 views

  •  
    New kinds of electronic tools are emerging that allow instructors to craft presentations that more closely reflect new approaches to teaching and learning. For instance, many of these tools allow collaboration between multiple authors, and some use nonlinear branching or sequencing so that class discussion can guide the presentation. Presentation tools based on new models of representing information also encourage instructors to rethink learning activities in ways that can improve learning. These tools might also bring about a more thorough merging of in-person and remote classroom audiences.

  • More recently, I've started watching and deconstructing Lessig's TED talk with my Art & Media Ed students (most of whom are becoming teachers) in order to better understand the power of Lessig's approach. We also review the critiques of PowerPoint put forth by Edward Tufte, Sherry Turkle, and David Byrne.

    As a point of reference, we view Peter Norvig's PowerPoint reworking of the Gettysburg Address. If you haven't seen it, Norvig's presentation translates Abe Lincoln’s moving 1863 cemetery speech into a series of six generic slides featuring bullet points, bland colors and a nearly incomprehensible ‘Organizational Overview’ graph. It clearly illustrates some of the profound limitations of PowerPoint as a communications tool.

    In contrast, Lessig uses visuals (and selected text) in a way that truly compliments and extends the conceptual/pedagogical aspects of his presentations. As Chris Tunnell has pointed out, the multiple slides, repeating images, and minimal text allows the audience to focus on, enjoy (and presumably remember) the material being presented. This is further enhanced by the logical (e.g. 3 stories and an argument) and sometimes poetic (e.g. "the refrain") structures that Lessig uses to organize his talks.
