One of the great things about streaming a session live or publishing a video clip of a talk is it can reach a much wider audience than those watching at the time. This is certainly the case of the TeachMeet phenomenon which has established a tradition of spreading good practice and attracting colleagues from around the world interested in developing their own continuing professional development from the comfort of their own home. In the Flashmeeting of the recent TeachMeet SUKE for example the numbers attending virtually matched more or less those who were there in person.
Thanks to the efforts of Leon Cych and Anthony Evans presentations were captured live and archived on Blip.tv helping to spread the word further. I was delighted that my talk seemed to wow everyone on the night and that I was able how PowerPoint can be used in effective and engaging ways.
To help you copy the techniques I was demonstrating I've included a number of links below. To see more examples of the ideas in practice check out the recently broadcast Improving your Presentations programme from the new Teachers TV series Better Learning with ICT. I've also created an audio version of the talk so you can listen and learn on the move if you want to!
Thanks to Mark and Stephen for organising the event and for the kind tweets about my presentation. Here are some pictures for those who couldn't make it themselves.
