Looking for a way to share presentations easily online?
One Web 2.0 tool you might like is SlideShare, a Web 2.0 tool widely used by the educational community for sharing and remixing presentations. I like SlideShare because it’s user friendly and easy to embed presentations across social networks without having to worry about carrying around a flash drive or having the right version of PowerPoint.
I also like that professionals outside of WHS can view and share my work. I recently received an email from a grad student asking if I had additional resources related to an urban agriculture presentation I posted in 2008. Not to mention. SlideShare is filled with amazing presentations that you can borrow and remix for your own lessons. Students can also post and present using SlideShare; it’s just another way to publish their work for an authentic audience.
I created this slideshow to share a few fiction titles we’ve recently added to our collection. These books represent some of this year’s most read YA titles in historical, science, fantasy , and realistic fiction.
Please feel free to share this presentation with your students as a bell ringer. Also, I’d be happy to come and share one of my “Tech Saavy: Where Multi-media Meets Print” booktalks with your students.
I also welcome the opportunity to collaborate with teachers on creating a “book talk channel” on YouTube, so if you are interested in integrating this project, e.g., having students create book talks as part of their IRPs, let me know.
As a side note, I uploaded this presentation using SlideShare,
