If you’ve not already read my previous blog posts ‘Getting Beyond Bullet Points (visuals only)’ and ‘Getting Beyond Bullet Points (with audio) then I’d strongly suggest having a read of them before you read any more of this post.
Well for 2 reasons really:
1. The earlier posts will provide you with the context behind this post.
2. The purpose of this specific post is to expand upon the subject of the backchannel that is only briefly mentioned in the earlier posts.
The reason that it is only briefly mentioned is due to the fact that I used Prezi to facilitate that particular element of my session. I guess I could have used PowerPoint just as effectively, but I wanted to demonstrate an alternative to traditional slide-ware software.
So grab your sickbags…. here’s the Prezi…….
Don’t forget, this is Part 3 in a series of posts surrounding my LSG11UK session.
Part 1 – Getting Beyond Bullet Points with visuals only
Part 2 – Getting Beyond Bullet Points with visual and audio.
Part 3 – Bringing in the backchannel
Part 4 – The Learners Voice
Part 5 – Getting Beyond Bullet Points live recorded podcast
Part 6 – Tools and resources
Here’s Dan Roddy’s thoughtful blog post on the use of Twitter as a backchannel tool.
Did you get anything from this Prezi?
Do you promote/participate in backchannel debate or do you think it dilutes the experience for you?
Why not let us know in the comments section?
