Presentation Zen: From A to Z

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Are you tired of sitting through 25 Powerpoint presentations that are ugly, drag on for what feels like an eternity, and are the opposite of entertaining? Are you ready to arm your grade 5-8 students with superpowered presentation skills? Then you will want to join us and learn how to teach your students zen-like presentation skills such as pecha kuchas, ignite and more. We'll walk you step by step through the process of using readily available software such as Powerpoint to communicate learned information in an exciting way that enlivens an audience instead of putting them to sleep. Snore no more! Bonus: Student presentations become authentic assessments that are meaningful and have real-world applications.
