5 Tips for Powerful Professional Development with Haiku Deck

Once again, TechChef4U dishes up some useful information. Though I downloaded Haiku Deck a long time ago, I have been skirting around using it. One of the reasons is that I wanted to convey more information on it than the extremely visual format would allow (of course, putting too much information on your powerpoint or keynote is what has given them such a bad rep  in the first place.)

But Lisa Johnson points out the “added notes” section available which is the perfect solution-when you view the deck on the Haiku Deck site, you see the visual and beside it the notes that accompany the slide.

Also- she mentions how she flips her PD. Which , really, is what Ms. Science teacher did with her presentation on Explain Everything and Notability a couple of weeks ago and which I think we should do more of. I mean, isn’t it time we put our money where our mouth is? Or at least the flipped in our own teacher’s classroom?

Check out her Haiku decks and her tips for a great presentation- extremely useful!

out a new tool for her called Haiku Deck and would like you to take that into account while viewing though personally, I don’t think it is necessary- it was a fabulous presentation on the merits and challenges of QuickVoice. And as a bonus, she learned a new tool!


Thanks Melanie!

Lesson Plan: Embedding Visuals Into Teaching and Learning

Via Langwitches

As the teacher advisor for the school’s online magazine, I encounter certain perennial issues (and yes, quality of the writing is one of them and no that is not what I am going to talk about right now). My writer’s send me a large block of text and think they are done.  They don’t take advantage of the advantages of an online form: they don’t hyperlink text that could be linked to more information. And they hardly ever add visuals. I was talking to the teacher in charge of the grade eleven integrative project and she was telling me the same thing about the students who chose to start blogs- they think they are done once they plug in their text.

It just occurred to me that this problem might stem from the fact that they view articles as static pieces, as assignments to give to their teachers.

So when I read this article from Ed Tech Guru Silvia Rosenthal Tolisano it struck a chord:
