Thanks to a recent blog post by Alfred Thompson, an Academic Evangelist for Microsoft in the US, I’ve discovered a few great places for getting information about education and what’s going on around the world.
Top spot goes to the aggregation of quality and interesting blogs at AllTop (where Alfred pointed to), but already I’ve started appreciating some of the individual blogs as well.
For one thing, there are a number of blog posts by educators out there dealing with having better presentations – here’s one that shows before/afters of a PowerPoint deck.
Or how about this explanation of why Twitter works.
What we have to learn from this stuff obviously doesn’t belong solely to the education realm – good presentation skills are essential for most people at Readify, and I don’t know how many times I have tried to explain Twitter to people who haven’t tried it.
