This blog entry looks at my workstations, with the heading of what I wanted students to notice, and then what they reported from their groups as noticing. I gave students a quick rundown of what I had wanted them to notice also before they left for home.
- PPT as a handout: looks good, but some text is so small it's illegible. Needs numbers.
- Simple is best.
- They used efficiency powerpoint.
- Color print is not good when you use powerpoint handouts.
- easy to look at
- have a graph
- There is a block of vocabulary each paper
- PPT makes it easy to understand.
2. Text handouts: Changing font size and styles shows a hierarchy of importance of knowledge about a topic (one handout had dense text only), or highlights presentation structure. Diagrams support topic comprehension at a glance.
- I can understand with clear graph.
- well knowledge but too much writing
- Their sentence is too long to read.
- Handout clear to see.
- good length of handout is important
- It is not good to use only long sentence
- Exchange Rate, careful preparation
3. Paper visuals to be held up (An A4 printed color PPT, A4 manga explanation of Insider Dealing): Visuals need to be big enough to see from afar, colorful, one-word info, possibly better projected than printed.
- Hand made picture is very good.
- Their character is very pretty.
- Too much spelling mistakes. Cartoons make easy to understand.
- Vocabulary sheet is good.
- Trying powerpoint is good.
- good visual
4. Four LBO Handouts: Too much Japanese in handout, diagrams need English titles, good use of indent, boxes and diagrams/flowcharts
- The figure helps us to understand what the Leveraged Buyout means in a short time.
- well structured
- It's not good to use much Japanese
- handout clear
- easy to understand as it uses good visual
- Their contents is economic
- Clear visual is good
- I think it needs vocabulary's explain, summary and table
5. Peer Photos: Presentation Posture and Eye-contact: Standing up straight, sometimes turning to another speaker, but relaxed.
- Every one is up face
- They couldn't do enough eye contact
- Looking at audience makes good impression
- Posture have a paper
- Good posture is important
- official appearance
Gotta run, more later...
