You will do an ORAL PRESENTATION for the class using prezi, powerpoint/slideshare, or google presentations. This presentation must be at least 10 minutes long, but no more than 15 minutes. Each day of class begins with a presentation. You START the class, not the teacher! Do NOT assume that anyone in the class has heard of your justice issue. Do NOT assume that we know or have thought critically about why this topic is important. Tell us what, who, when, and where. Then dive deeper into why you are arguing for this as a digital justice issue and why it is socially significant.
Here are other things to consider in your presentation:
- How and why does this justice issue occupy a digital space that convinces us to act or think more deeply?
- What is the social justice issue at stake here?
- How do the digital tools connect and/or re-invigorate the intended community/target audiences?
Use Prezi, slideshare, or google presentations. Play around with it. Get comfortable with these as you will undoubtedly have the opportunity to present with these platforms in other classes. Once you have a presentation on prezi or slideshare (transfers PPT to internet to be embedded onto websites, etc.), you can embed that to websites and to your ePortfolio so that you can archive your professional work for later needs.
|Below you will see last year's project guidelines presented via slideshare. For slideshare, you simply create a free account, upload your PPT after it is done, and then take the EMBED code and embed your PPT on multiple platforms. Slideshare also stores all of your PPTs for you. You just click on the arrows and the PPT moves forward.||You could also be more sneaky, sneaky here. Below you will see last year's project guidelines presented as a youtube video. If you add a soundtrack, then make your PPT into a movie, you can upload it to youtube and just play your movie during your presentation or during part of your presentation. An interesting 10-15 video is NOT easy, but you could certainly try.|
| Prezi is a presentation platform that allows users to pan, zoom, change sizes, and rotate, objects. You place your objects on a canvas and choose how to navigate between these videos, images, texts and other presentation media. |
Notice how the arrows in the prezi work very differently than the arrows on the slideshow above that is based on PPT.
Like with slideshare and youtube, you create your free account and then you and others can embed your prezi on other platforms the way these presentations are all embedded on this website. If you have never created a prezi, start with a simple tutorial. Click here.
Notice how NONE of these presentations used the pre-packaged backgrounds. Be original here. It will make you look more skilled, more thoughtful, and even more tech/graphic-savvy…even if you are not. It does not take much work or time to use an original background.
You do not need to come to class in a 5-piece suit when you present (though you are certainly welcome to… a lil swag never hurt NObody!) Do not let your nerves psych you out though. You are talking to your colleagues here, giving them information that they do not have about something you care about. You are NOT competing with anyone in here. You are SHARING with them.
