I'm fairly new to the world of presenting in front of groups, and could clearly benefit from tips and tricks of the trade. I saw the following post referenced in a blog on presentation skills. I remember first hearing about Guy Kawasaki the ADE institute last summer. Anyway, I think his 10/20/30 rule is interesting but not necessarily applicable to educational conference presentations. So... here are my questions: How would you adapt his ideas to the world of education? Are there 10 topics an educator cares about instead of a venture capitalist? What is the best presentation advice you've received or resource you've used? And... the question that's particularly on mind after presenting to a small group yesterday, how do you manage material so that you do not overwhelm your audience? With all our knowledge about stuff that is not necessarily cutting edge to us... but probably is to other educators.... how do you break it down and keep it simple?
By the way, check out the nice comment about people in the business world using Windows laptops. :)
