Title: Meeting Challenges of the NEW MEDIA FRONT
This talk explores the onset of the New Media Front that teachers have to grapple with. Some of the tools and online services introduced include YouTube; TeacherTube; SlideShare; Flickr; Blogger; and Wikipedia. Presenter Ivan Chew will also share examples of how these various medium are being used by educators, both in Singapore and abroad.
Attendees will walk away with a better understanding of challenges faced when adopting these new media tools, as well as when students adopt new mediums for school-related work.
I'd just looked over at the notes I prepared earlier, for the talk. And I threw out 80% of the outline.
Do other presenters or educators face this problem? When you look at your initial outline, you think you've got a winner; that the audience would love it. But only to review it later and find that even you're bored just going through it. I'm not worried about embarrassing myself by doing a bad job per se; I'm concerned that the audience won't get the most out of it.
On the positive side, I'm quite confident of delivering a talk off the cuff, if it comes down to it. But I'd have to prepare a few screenshots, just in case the Internet connectivity goes wonky on me.
You folks have any comments/ suggestions/ pointers for this group of teachers? I'd be happy to incorporate them into the talk (with due credit, always).
