My latest HippoBytes was about helping students to deliver powerful presentations, like the students in the video below:
Before we tell our students to write essays, we teach them to write paragraphs. Before we tell them to play soccer, we teach them how to handle the ball. Before we tell them to do a science experiment, we teach them about safety and procedures. Yet so often we tell them to do presentations without actually teaching them how to present. And knowing how to make a Powerpoint is not the same thing as knowing how to present. In this session, we learned four principles for creating and delivering powerful presentations.
