Day 4 - Still Hangin' In There
My Journey Of Discovery Activity
I got to attend a social hosted by Discovery Education, and I saw an interesting presentation strategy that could totally be used in the classroom. So what happens is you give the presenters (which would be your students or yourself) 5 minutes to talk about 10 photos they choose ahead of time. The photos are put on a PowerPoint or Google Slides Presentation that automatically advanced every 30 seconds. These photos are supposed to be photos of things they are passionate about or about themselves. It has a very powerful effect on the audience and instantly connects people who don't even know each other. Some of the presentations were hilarious, some were funny, some were interesting. It all depended on the person who choose the photos. Regardless of the tone it instantly connected all of us. I could see it being great for the beginning of the year getting to know you part of the school year.
