My Textual Non-textual Powerpoint

13.1 Industrial Revolution

So, I’m sitting here doing research and banging my head trying to come up with something that, “1) get you to explore ways of being online beyond text and 2) see what kinds of skills you have using different media,” and I realize that I already own something that meets those goals.  The powerpoint link attached above is one that I expanded on from the school district’s Pearson Curriculum, and it has many different technological aspects.  Under the link you can see what students pick up when they enter the room. On page three of the powerpoint I have a attached a photo of a document template I created for vocabulary work.  Page nine is a flowchart I made for a class activity regarding the reasons the Industrial Revolution started in GB.  On page eleven, I attached a primary source from an old Maryland curriculum I had, plus a link to a YouTube video about coal mines in the 1880s.  The quiz questions at the end are also on my Plickers account.

Powerpoint, Pearson’s Online, photo editing, table/tools on Word, hot links, videos, and assessment apps…. Does that work?

  1. That works! Despite people bashing it, Powerpoint can be a very useful tool for more than just boring audiences to death in a conference room 🙂

    As you go through the course, you will have opportunities to also try out things like: timeline generators, mind maps, concept mapping, audio, video, infographics, etc. Each of those are keywords you can use to search for free sites and applications for building such things.

    For instance, it could help with your digital humanities exploration to do some mind mapping of the field/concept.

    The idea of getting beyond text in this class is simply to consider how the web and other digital media can be used to do more things, taking advantage of the media. And while “learning styles” are a matter of debate, there’s no doubt that we all have preferences for experiencing in different ways and that different media, or a mix of them, can create better learning experiences than any single media alone is likely to.
