katep: September 2011 Archives
How do you interest a large class? Last week I helped use all of the Libraries clickers in the large section of an Architecture course. Worked rather well!
You have been able to change colors and such in Prezi for a little while but they have added a bunch of new templates which may it rather easy create something aesthetically pleasing...shall we say... I did a presentation for a class where their project is going to be creating/editing Wikipedia articles...
I also showed one of my favorite Stephen Colbert clips for "wikiality" and about 5 minutes from a TED talk with Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales.
Did you see the workshop advertised in Brief this week?
