Group Project Activity
Textbook Article Presentation
This is to be presented in much the same way as the Tech News presentation. However, be mindful of the need to bring newness in each of your presentation. Inevitably, some of the popular subjects will overlap (such as privacy, big data, social media, artificial intelligence, etc). Always add different spins and focuses so that the audience will keep learning and not tire of the subject matter.
Some key points to remember are:
- Introduce yourselves
- Provide needed background information
- If you use videos, keep them to a minimum and be sure they are relevant enough to occupy time.
- Explore different aspects of story if it has already been covered.
- Do not present slides with lots of text; and of course do not read from slides.
- To some extent, apply the frame discussed on page ___.
- about 8-10 minutes for presentation and Q&A, but no more than 15.
- Engage the audience. In the previous presentation, each group asked question. That was good, but if you can be even more creative, that would be even better.
Finally, in an OAKS Discussion called "Textbook Presentations", one member will submit the following:
- For the Subject, type the name of your group.
- A 100-200 word summary of your article.
- Two (2) possible questions for the next test.
- For convenience, simply list each member's name.
