Um, no, I don’t think they aim at teachers and educators — it’s a for-profit group, not a charity.
That’s also one of my concerns. Here’s one of a series of short videos Ethos3 prepared, to help you with your next presentation or, you hope, the woman or man who will be making that presentation you have to watch next Wednesday morning at Rotary Club, or at Scout leader training next Saturday, or kicking off the budget planning exercise next Monday (at 7:00 — coffee provided so don’t be late!):
Generally, I’d agree.
But what about teachers, who have to slog through 150 specific items for the state test?
- Teachers could benefit greatly from learning presentation secrets, and making their in-class presentations much more effective.
- No school district in America, public, charter, parochial, or homeschool, will give you time to put together such an effective presentation.
- Most teachers get no coaching on presentation effectiveness, and their students lose out.
- Just because the administrators won’t cut you slack to do it, doesn’t mean a teacher shouldn’t learn about effective presentation techniques, and use them.
In a world of bad bosses, it’s almost impossible to get a really great principal at a school. Teachers gotta slog on anyway.
You won’t have the time to do the presentation your students deserve, but you should try, anyway.
Dreaming for a minute: I wish I could get a team like this to help out with designing a curriculum, figuring out where presentation work, how to give them real punch, and where not to use them at all.
What do you think? Can you tell your story in just three points? Can you reduce a lecture to three key points that would be memorable, and that spurs students to learn what they need to learn?
