Aaron’s Presentation Reflection

ED 366 Presentation Reflection.

What I have tried to do is to capture the thought process when developing my presentation through my Work plan

Topic:

Here is what I want to do.  I want to present a survey to the group.  I want to survey their thoughts on the topic of how to develop a better way to asses students.  The plan is to give a presentation (google slides?: because I have not used it before) to the group based on what I want to develop.  Then I want to give the group a survey (google Forms: because I have not used it before either), and use the results to help me work on this problem.

Planning:

Experiment with Google slides to get my head around that program and develop the slides that I need.  I also need to develop a form that I want to submit to the group.  Do I embed the form?  Do I email it to them?  Do I use a link on Superfuntimes?  When I send the form, where do I get the results? Do they go to my Gmail account?

Development:

Google slides:  very similar to PowerPoint.  Formats the same

Google Forms:  Went through tutorial… easier to use template.  Chose the “survey” form because it seemes to accomplish what I am looking for.  Form itself is easy to develop (WATCH FOR SPELLING ERRORS!!!!!  IT DOES NOT SPELLCHECK AUTOMATICALLY)

How to link the two documents…..

I want each person to fill out the survey during the presentation.  This will start a fresh conversation around qualities of a good officer.  I want a further discussion as part of my group activity (with the survey).

LOOK AT THE TOP RIGHT HAND SIDE OF THE FORM…. THERE IS A LITTLE BLUE BIRD ICON!

Test:  I clicked on the Twitter icon and entered #ED366 and there it was, on our twitter chat.  Now a little damage control.  Had to tweet the group to make sure they did not do the survey before the presentation.  I reopened the survey to accept submissions so I could test it before class.

Delivery:

0830: I tweeted the #ed366 group the link to the survey.  Tested it, it is working.

0840: Started my presentation (opened Google slides and Google Forms document).

0850: Got to the survey slide and had everyone open twitter and do the survey (actually I had everyone open twitter while I was trying to log on to the computer at the front of the class).

0855: Survey complete and I switched to Google Form “results” screen to show results.  Worked well, was able to see the live results in the presentation.. cool!

0857: Heckled by Dave about the spelling errors (damn you spellcheck!)

0900: realized I was over time and ended presentation

Overall Reflection:

Overall I was able to accomplish what I wanted.  My plan was to use something new, and it worked out pretty good (in my opinion).  I was able to use Google Slides, Google Forms and Twitter all together.  NEVER would have happened 7 days ago!  I don’t know about anyone else, but I was impressed.  And, I got some really good feedback about evaluation methods!  (Bonus for me)
