Description Task: Using the presentation software of your choice, I want you to translate the TED Talk you watched into a slide-based presentation for conveying the information. This exercise is to push you to consider the delicate balance between the amount of content on slides alongside the amount of lecture (i.e. talking about/beyond/over slides) a good lecture needs. Consider when you watching a lecture, especially in-person. If there is a lot of text on the slide, you may notice most people struggling to get all of the information into their notes, usually not able to get much of anything written down from the lecture itself. This is obviously not good since the point of the additional lecture is to give the deeper understandings (text on slides for a large portion of your professors is basically “here are the headlines, listen for the important aspects of the story). On top of this, though, I find that students do not stay engaged with classes that are lecture only (i.e. no slides). One of the reasons that TED Talks can work so well with minimal slides is that ability to re-watch/pause/adjust speed. Most presentations do not occur in this fashion, though, so it’s a delicate balance. To push you to really consider where focus needs to lie, you’ll be working to translate a lecture-heavy presentation into a set of presentation slides you’d be more likely to see in one of your in-person classes. Exercise #4 Part 2 – Creating Presentations TED Talks give a preference for the spoken aspects of talks, requiring quite a bit on the audience regarding focus and recall. Using the TED Talk you viewed for Exercise #4 Part 2 and create a simple presentation that would offer you the opportunity as a viewer to keep track of the major points, similar to what you’ll need to do for your final presentation. Consider the TED Talk world and pay close attention to the audience: very few folks are taking notes. Across the talks there is a lot of information, and regularly very specific and detailed claims. TED Talks often take the form of entertainment but are also beneficial for learning, so I want you to treat this like you were at an actual lecture.
