Transcript of Prezi about prezi
Looking forward to collaborating *It's a cool looking ABC book, but would you want to teach someone to read using it? Will Microsoft improve PP?
The record for incremental reform in the cognitive style of PowerPoint is not promising. In the many release versions of PP, the intellectual level has not been raised. New releases have drifted toward ingrown self-parody, featuring ever more elaborated PP Phluff and presenter therapy. These changes have made the new version different from the previous version, but not smarter. There are no incentives for meaningful change in a monopoly product with an 86% gross profit margin, only incentives to make it different, somehow, from the previous release. PP competes only with itself.
-- Edward Tufte, September 20, 2005 http://www.edwardtufte.com/tufte/books_pp McLUHAN: People are beginning to understand the nature of their new technology, but not yet nearly enough of them — and not nearly well enough. Most people, as I indicated, still cling to what I call the rearview-mirror view of their world. By this I mean to say that because of the invisibility of any environment during the period of its innovation, man is only consciously aware of the environment that has preceded it; in other words, an environment becomes fully visible only when it has been superseded by a new environment; thus we are always one step behind in our view of the world. Because we are benumbed by any new technology — which in turn creates a totally new environment — we tend to make the old environment more visible; we do so by turning it into an art form and by attaching ourselves to the objects and atmosphere that characterized it, just as we’ve done with jazz, and as we’re now doing with the garbage of the mechanical environment via pop art.
The present is always invisible because it’s environmental and saturates the whole field of attention so overwhelmingly; thus everyone but the artist, the man of integral awareness, is alive in an earlier day. In the midst of the electronic age of software, of instant information movement, we still believe we’re living in the mechanical age of hardware. At the height of the mechanical age, man turned back to earlier centuries in search of “pastoral” values. The Renaissance and the Middle Ages were completely oriented toward Rome; Rome was oriented toward Greece, and the Greeks were oriented toward the pre-Homeric primitives. We reverse the old educational dictum of learning by proceeding from the familiar to the unfamiliar by going from the unfamiliar to the familiar, which is nothing more or less than the numbing mechanism that takes place whenever new media drastically extend our senses. skeuomorphic design path dependent design We drive into the future using only our rear view mirror Put comments to each other inside this circle ok? DB Fri 20 Aug:
I like some of the ideas you have for the intro, but I'm afraid it will go on too long for the hour we have. MW Fri 2o Aug 11 a.m.
Agreed and I'll trim this down to a manageable 2 minutes for the Prezi! DB Sat 21 Aug 3pm
I won't be at work on Monday and I don't have internet at home. I'll work on some prezi stuff offline and put it in when I get in on Tuesday. I'm planning to work on the advantages bit and plan what I'll show for editing. (I'm at work now, so that's how I'm doing this!) MW Sun 22 Aug 10 am
I've got a couple of research deadlines, a lecture and a committee meeting on Monday, so I'll be saving most of my work on this for Monday night onwards. I'll put together a brief intro that night and then wait to see what you upload Tuesday before adding more. Sound like a good plan? P.S. We should keep this as a way to show how we collaborated!

(see Ahead, http://ahead.com/#view/lilaspaces/main/welcome?scene=HOME, for an alternative) Limited compatibility with file formats Limited graphic capabilities (e.g. fonts, etc.) [but that may be an advantage!] Zoom nausea!

WHAT DOES A PREZI PRESENTATION LOOK LIKE? HOW DOES PREZI WORK? You're watching one now!
You've seen something similar before - Google Maps There's not much to it ... let's show you WHAT CAN IT DO? It's just easier to show you ... Original equation 1. Try something like r(x) but with unknown coefficients: 2. From y, find y' and y'': 4. Find values of unknown coefficients: 5. Put the values in: eg: If then try then try eg: If then try eg: If then try eg: If Equate coefficients of powers of x Sub in values of x OR Particular solution to original equation number number number function of x General solution to homogeneous equation 1. Write down characteristic equation: 3. Use these values to make two solutions: 4. Use these two solutions to make general solution: If then use then use If If then use 2. Solve characteristic equation: & & & Solving linear second-order differential equations with constant coefficients 3. Sub into original equation: General solution to original equation 1. Add the general solution for the homogeneous equation
to the particular solution for the original equation: By David Butler (c) The University of Adelaide August 2010 Note: The theory says that if I have two solutions that aren't multiples of each other, then all the rest of the solutions must be linear combinations of these two.
That's why we just make a linear combination of them (with arbitrary coefficients) to get the general solution. Note: If this doesn't work, try including a term like "Bxe^(-4x)" too. Note: If this doesn't work, try including a term like "Dx^3" too. Note: If this doesn't work, try including a term like "Bx" as well. Note: If this doesn't work, try including terms like
"Cx cos(2x)" and "Dx sin(2x)" too. 1. If there are initial conditions, such as y(0)=0 and y'(0) =5
sub them in now to find C and D. Particular solution to original equation
satisfying conditions 2. Put the values of C and D in to get the final solution. Note: Don't try including them earlier than this - you must wait until you've found the general solution. Note: If there are initial conditions, this solution is not likely to satisfy them.
We are going to use this solution to find ALL the other solutions.
After that we can find another particular solution that DOES satisfy the conditions. You can use to help you the learning environment DISPLAYS can help to teach KNOWLEDGE and CONCEPTS SKILLS and BEHAVIOURS ATTITUDES actually teach. RESOURCES can help to teach ATMOSPHERE can help to teach writing to solve problems it's possible to do it yourself the families of number it's possible to enjoy maths recognising greek letters looking in the textbook or notes MATHS DROP-IN CENTRE solving maths problems At least 6 students a year learn a fundamental truth about these sets of numbers by noticing and asking about something in these posters. Many students after several visits do spontaneously get a textbook off the shelf before asking for help. Casual mathematical chatter Tell me about what you've done so far. Student-teacher interactions I reckon you can finish it from here. What do these words here mean? I didn't do anything - you did that all by yourself. Let's look that up in the textbook... Students from the sciences learn what the "funny squiggles" mean.
Students from statistics find it easier to remember that mu stands for mean when they see that the capital letter is M for mean. The staff use these particular phrases, and the students notice that the things we say are on the wall.
Many students take a handout-copy to use later. Staff model writing to help solve problems. After a couple of visits, most students freely use as much paper as they need. All staff interactions are focused on the student having confidence to do it themselves. We check we're not disturbing the students, but they say they like to listen to our mathematical chatter. Some have said they like to see people enjoying maths. Look what I just figured out! I remember a story about the mathematician who discovered that. Isn't this proof clever? How cool is THIS? That's my favorite fact about matrices. How things are changing for students ...

Getting late now David, but I think we're almost there with the Prezi Prezi now! Would be nice to have more time to refine, but this should serve to show how it works and some of the possibilities.
