Module 4 Part 3

, in this Slideshare “SAMR as a Framework for Moving Towards Education 3.0,” explains how education needs to skip to “doing” Web 3.0 — student-directed learning. She leads us through 1.0, 2.0, and 3.0 to understand the relevance of education that is driven by the learner.

LinkedIn Slideshare‘s platform allows users to upload many different presentations [Keynote, PowerPoint, HaikuDeck, eMaze, Google Slides, and more. Your presentation is then in the cloud, ready to present by you or view by your audience: just share it. All the links within your slides should be active. A whole set of blogposts on Tips and Tricks are well worth the viewing even if you don’t use Slideshare.

How does Slideshare help educators?

  • The slides are always there [even if you change schools]
  • Share your presentations for professional development, your community, your families
  • Set up “Daily Menu” of daily class lessons and links so students [present or absent] know what’s happing [I do this with Google Slides: kids and parents like it]
  • Point students to your sets of “help” slides, which can include videos!
  • Embed a slideshow on your class or district website [it can be changed and will be updated automatically]
  • Moving towards Web 3.0? Link to the daily focus, the Google Form into which students reflect progress on their goals, link to resources for students, and make it editable for students who can add their slides of their resources shared with others

How could you use a presentation tool like Slideshare to enhance lessons, communication, presentations, or collaboration?
