To provide some presentation tips, I decided to create a trial run of a TED Talk by delivering a presentation to my students in the form of a TED Talk. My goal was to not only inform my students about presentation techniques, but to also test out the technology that we would be using to film their presentations.
Now that I have created a TED Talk about How to Deliver a TED Talk, I have decided to share my video and resources for other teachers and students to use for similar projects and presentations. Before I created my presentation, I researched some of the latest, best practices for giving presentations. The two books that I used for my research included How to Deliver a TED Talk by Jeremy Donovan and To Sell is Human by Daniel Pink. Both of these books had tons of great information that I was able to integrate into my presentation.
If you are interested in learning about the latest presentation tips and techniques, feel free to check out the notes that I took from both of these books:
I also got some great resources from Danielle Hartman, who is also doing a TED Talk project with her students. Here is my Google Drive Folder with additional resources.
I hope that you find these resources to be helpful if you decide to do a similar project with your students to share some "Ideas worth spreading" and "Lessons worth sharing".
