PREZI, POWTOON AND PECHA KUCHA WORKSHOP – At the Well Leadership Academy
Princeton University, Wednesday, July 29, 2015
Presenter: Thomas Holmes, MDiv, MPA
The purpose of this workshop is to provide students with presentation tools that can be used effectively to facilitate the practical application of knowledge through a dynamic, storytelling, collaborative, innovative, and shared experiences.
1). Students with no Prezi, Pecha Kucha or Powtoon presentation experience will learn the basics and some advanced features, as a foundation to build on their skill sets to master the art of dynamic presentations.
2). Students with prior Prezi presentation experience will be able to enhance their knowledge with new ways to present data and content.
3). Students will view (on their time) tutorial videos on how to use Prezi templates, navigate the canvas, add images, URLs, symbols, frame content, use the transformation tool, and insert music, videos and other media.
4). Students will create one group Prezi Project Presentation based on their integrated group dialogue, individual research and group surveys.
Structure: (Each student should first go to Prezi and create a FREE ACCOUNT if they have not done so already)
- I will assign group leaders and group members according to certain parameters.
a. The group leader shall collect names (and nicknames if preferred), email, cell numbers, and identify each member’s category for membership. firstname.lastname@example.org.
1. Group leaders should facilitate creative and collaborative superiority on their Prezi presentation, but EVERYONE MUST CONTRIBUTE CONTENT TO THE PRESENTATION AND IT HAS TO BE AWESOME!
2. Each group member who is unfamiliar with Prezi, Powtoon or Pecha Kucha is expected to review the video tutorials on www.powerfulvisions.org.
3. Groups are to meet at least 3 times to collaborate on their project that is due by noon, Wednesday, August 6, 2015. Members are allowed to work independently according to assignments that are agreed upon democratically within the group and share their work via email and/or Google docs.
Applying to colleges and applying for scholarships can be an overwhelming task. In an effort to make this process easier we need a clear presentation of how to go about applying and getting admitted to the best colleges in this country and securing the most money to offset college costs.
1). I want each group to do an Amazing Prezi which will include 1 Powtoon, 1 Pecha Kucha PowerPoint on applying for scholarships.
You presentation should answer the following questions:
A). How can I can cover the cost of college without burdening my parents?
B). What is the best way to choose a college that will meet my academic and financial interests, cultivate my leadership abilities, and fulfill my commitment to community engagement? (Be sure to clearly define community)
C). What are the essential 15 websites that all current high school/college bound students should frequently use to help them prepare and overcome challenges on their journey to college success?
