Tips for Newbie Presenters

Take a minute before your presentation to chat with the colleagues you'll be presenting to.  Helps me remember I'm sharing with teachers like me!

Make sure your Google Docs are shared properly!  #Fail

Have a back up plan in case internet fails! Whenever possible make sessions interactive. Participants should be actively creating!

My tips for presenting at CUE

  • Be prepared!  My co-presenter and I went through the presentation several times before the main event.  Besides the speaking component, it is important to run through the tech specs, possible questions, etc.
  • Put yourself in the audience's shoes.  If you were in audience, would you find the information useful?

Be prepared! Have fun! Give them something they can't get somewhere else.

  • Have lots of backup technology *incase* something goes wrong... because that NEVER happens!
  • Start the presentations with an activity related to your topic that participants can do... in this case we have them signing up for Badgelist and working toward their first badge before we even start. 
  • Have something for newbies and experienced users
  • Have student examples and "project" ideas to share, with 'how to' resurces

Tips for presenting at CUE

1) Always present with a friend - it makes it easier to bounce ideas and share jokes while presenting.
2) Relax - everyone there is attending to learn
3) Tweet a selfie from the session with your audience.
