Another wonderful tech tip from my tech gurus.
Last week I presented at the KORCOS conference in Korea about my experience having a paperless classroom this year, and my recommendations to teachers who are thinking about moving toward eliminating paper from their classes. Teaching paperless isn’t as difficult as I thought it would be, and we have not used paper in my class this year.
I recently required a “presentation of choice” from my students. Most of them chose to present using Keynote (Apple’s answer to PowerPoint). I was honestly shocked by how poorly they used this presentation tool. I created the presentation below years ago, but updated it last week and discussed it with my seventh graders. It includes what I think are some common sense ideas about presenting.
