New Talk; New Methods

I spent about 3 hours yesterday working on a presentation explaining why we should teach engineering to young students.  I am trying to make my presentations more like TED talks with big ideas and lots of visuals.  It is still hard for me to get away totally from the Powerpoint bullets, which more than anything, remind me what to say.  But I am using the presenter notes feature of Keynote to help and using lots of visuals: movies, photos of kids and their Lego robotics creations, and scans of student work.  I have 2 one day workshops coming up (one on BeeBots and one on BeeBots, WeDo, and NXT all together, which should be interesting), a short talk on robotics for kids for our district convocation, and an hour long presentation for a tech conference in the fall.
