Visual Presentations and Classroom Response Systems
Last week, CFT assistant director Derek Bruff was invited to give a presentation to DigitalVU, a group of web developers and other technology folks at Vanderbilt. They asked Derek to talk about technologies useful for engaging students in a classroom or audience members at a presentation. He talked about some tools for enhancing the visual component of one’s presentations (the Presentation Zen approach, Flickr, Compfight, Prezi) as well as classroom response systems (clickers, ResponseWare, Google Moderator) useful for facilitating interactions and discussions in the classroom. Below you’ll find the visuals from Derek’s talk, and if you head over to the DigitalVU blog, you’ll find some relevant links.
