Cliff,

 

Thank you for taking time to offer your insights in the LiveMeeting presentation. 

 

My question concerns implementing your 'storyboard' insights in classrooms (HS, MS) with students and teachers, as you have with businesses, etc,.

 

While I currently work with school planners/designers/architects, I spent 10 years as a HS English teacher.  My work then and today deals with 'the future of education/learning'.  While I chose to take part in the LiveMeeting seminar today due to my client-work, I am very intrigued by the potential impact on HS/MS students and teachers.  In many ways, the future of schools will focus on how students can utilize multi-media presentation tools to truly engage an audience and be a clear presenter.  For schools to truly engage students in a 21st century way, students and teachers must also realize that presentations are not 'flat' and simply a way to 'dump' info on slides. 

 

Do you spend time with educators in an effort to engage at the 'beginning' of presentation development, with an belief that this will have a long-range impact on businesses and public events as students become 'professionals'?

Great presentation and content. 

I just ordered your book off of Amazon.com, but I would like to get a copy of the presentation in .pdf to print.  I selected the option, at the end of the presentation, that requested a copy and any other additional content, but I am not sure that it reported prior to kicking me out of the session. With that presentation be posted to the discussion group?

Thank your seminar yesterday.  Right after the seminar ended I had to run off to a Fiscal Affairs Users Group presentation.  Of course Power Point was being used; however, I could not help but think of your presentation as I watched.  I was cringing internally the whole time - it was the antithesis of what I just learned!

By the way, where on your website can I find yesterdays presentation and find out who won the prizes?

 

Thanks again.

Ditto here!  I clicked on the same button and expected to receive a ppt.  Cliff, your ideas are great...and I need the ppt to review the concepts and get them put to use here!  Ordered your book and Mayer's on Amazon too.  Thanks for sharing!

I too thought that it was a fantastic presentation and went out and bought your book.

 

So the presentation PPT will be available? While your book does have most of the theory, the context of yesterday's presentation was perfect for numerous situations currently before me.

Hi Christian - thanks, and I'm glad you enjoyed the seminar.  I agree that this would be very useful in an educational context. I would be glad to help spread the word in any way that I can, and am happy to speak to groups to introduce the approach and present the persuasive case for its effectiveness.  A number of people in this discussion thread are interested in applying this in an educational context - you can join the conversation there, or drop me a line if you'd like to attend the Nov. 22 chat session at 9am PT.

Thanks!  The link to the full recording is now online, and I'll post a link here to the PDF when it is ready next week.

Thanks Rick.  Yes, the archive recording is now online, and a PDF version of the presentation will go out next week.

Thanks
