My Presentation Resources for #FETC: Dig Deeper in the Humanities with Next Generation Tools ft @PowToon @EDpuzzle @Buncee

Session description:

How can we better help students capture an abstract concept in the humanities? Often we teach abstract skills, whether it be an understanding of tone, mood or symbolism, through writing and discussion, but how can we create a deeper understanding for students? And how can we make this a more creative process? Simple tools such as Powtoon and EDpuzzle have been effective in engaging even the less motivated students. These tools are easy to use, so the skills taught come first, not the technology. In this session, you will see how students brought “Huckleberry Finn” to life by depicting tone and mood in a visual presentation using Powtoon and used EDpuzzle to demonstrate understanding of symbolism, set design, and script interpretation in “A Streetcar Named Desire.” Attend this session and discover how to use these tools to capture imagination, differentiate deep analytic understanding and hone presentation skills.
