Online Presentation Tools: The Writing Process

ONLINE PRESENTATION TOOLS: WRITING PROCESS

I liked this slideshare because of all of the information the teacher added to the powerpoint slides. She even added arrows to help her demonstrate it. She also did a good job of teaching it to the students. She was easy to understand and easy to follow along with. In this lesson, the teacher focuses on one particular step of the writing process, "drafting."

PROS

The pros of slideshare are that they are free and are very compatable with powerpoint. They, just like powerpoint, can have sound added to them.

CONS

The cons are that the slides need an internet connection in order to be viewed by others online.

In my opinion, powerpoint and slideshare are pretty much the same thing except that powerpoint doesn't need an internet connection to be viewed and slideshare does.

I love this voicethread presentation example above with the Coyote and "Roadrunner" in it. A favorite carton as a kid. Quite funny how no matter how hard he tries, the coyote just can't seem to outsmart the roadrunner. Lol! Anyways, the rationale for using this type of presentation is that it can be stopped right in mid action and either notes can be added to it or circles and lines can be drawn to make a point or stress something not otherwise noticed. I really liked this presentation far better than the slideshare one. I think kids would really love this as well. As far as the presentation goes, I think this is a great tool for teaching the five steps of the writing process because, like this presentation, the lesson can be stopped any time the students have questions and restarted again making it a great tool to use with kids. The steps in the writing process are as follows: 1) prewriting where brainstorming takes place; 2) drafting where the writing begins; 3) revising where students check each others papers for mistakes that need to be fixed; 4) editing where spelling, grammatical errors, and sentence structure are addressed; and 5) publishing your work so that others may see the finished product. t this point, this teacher, Jamie Edwards, the developer and owner of Power Ed. Plans, gives the kids a "Brainpop" video to watch to encourge more brainstorming ideas before the students actually publish their work. I love this concept. I found it to be quite impressive.

PROS

The pros of this tool used to create this lesson on the writing process are that students can get more involved in learning the material because unlike the slideshare, which in my opinion isn't much different than a powerpoint, a teacher using the voicethread can add voice like a slideshare or powerpoint, but can also add meaning to the lesson by stopping it along the way and pointing out certain things that he/she thinks the student should know. The teacher can also draw lines and circles right on the lesson in order to make an important point. In addition, it's free!!!

CONS

The cons of using this tool for creating this lesson are that it cannot be done without an internet connection. Other than that, I loved it! Think she did a great job. I also think it may have been that little "roadrunner" who did it for me. Lol! At any rate, I'm sold! :)

COMPARE WITH POWERPOINT

COMPARE WITH POWERPOINT

I think this tool is far better than powerpoint once one familarizes him or herself with it. Liked it so much better! Great tool.

The rationale for using prezi in this lesson plan is that prezi can do things the other two tools can't, making it a much better online tool for teaching. In this demonstration, the teacher can zoom in and out, move images on the screen back and forth, forward or backwards, and edit and delete items all while she is presenting a 5th grade writing assignment which involves, same as the other two, a five step writing process. From a teacher's point of view, this really would be the better presentation tool of the three. I could see many teachers using this once they got the hang of it because it really looks fun to use.

PROS

The pros are that the website is free and also that the kids and teachers alike should get a lot of learning from it just because the tool is so versatile in what it can do.

Cons

The cons of the tool are that 1) it cannot be used without an internet connection and 2) although the site may be free, I had a lot of trouble trying to login into it which means the site must have been down for awhile the past couple of days. May still be down. I don't know.

COMPARE WITH POWERPOINT

I believe that powerpoint is a great tool whose time has probably come and gone. With new and innovative tools around like voicethread, slideshare, and "prezi," especially, it probably won't be long before powerpoint will be obsolete.
