I have been reading through Presentation Zen by Presentation Guru Garr Reynolds. I plan on making many changes to how I communicate my ideas, specifically on the flipped classroom. Base on some of the suggestons from Zen and others, here is what I hope to do:
1. While I am still (reluctantly) going to use PowerPoint, 95% of the text is going to be omitted and/or replaced with images (not cheesy clipart if it can be avoided). (Seth Goden recommends no more than 6 words per slide-Ever.) Much of this has revolves around the cognitive load principles. Sweller is the researcher credited with initiating much of this.
2. I am going to try to invoke my storytelling abilities rather than presenting a checklist of the process.
That’s it for now. I will post BEFORE and AFTER samples after it is done.
