TTU: Show and Tell - More Visual Presentations
Transcript of TTU: Show and Tell - More Visual Presentations
"When the right visuals and words are used together, they create a third kind of experience, one that operates by unifying mind and emotion. That's why advertising works, or drama, or film—or the best presentations."
--Nancy Duarte, http://is.gd/dk0ByS
“Slides are slides. Documents are documents. They aren’t the same thing. Attempts to merge them result in what I call the ‘slideument.’”
-- Garr Reynolds, Presentation Zen

There are no such things as learning styles.
Different content benefits from different teaching modalities.
For the research, see "Teaching at Its Best" by Linda Nilson, Chapter 26.
*Not everyone, of course, since some learners have visual impairments.
People learn better when multiple modalities are used.
Visual thinking tools help everyone.*

Think of a concept your students find challenging.
Go to flickr.com and search for an image that could serve as a visual metaphor for the concept.
