Present with Ease with Presenter Coach – Educator Workshop
February 8 at 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm ESTFree Funded by Microsoft Canada
Did you know that 80% of people get butterflies, get anxious, and don’t sleep much the night before they need to speak in public? (Forbes) And this stat is no different than the populations found in our classrooms.
It’s scary and stressful for a lot of our students to present in front of their peers. Fears of saying the wrong thing, missing a cue, messing up or making a fool of themselves are all amplifiers to the anxiety many find when asked to give a presentation in front of the class.
Presenter Coach helps to reduce student anxiety and worry by supporting student presentation skills while they practice in private.
Presenter Coach checks pacing, pitch, use of filler words, informal speech, and euphemisms. It also detects when you’re being overly wordy or are simply reading the text on a slide! Talk about similar feedback to what you often give your students while they’re practicing!
Inside this 60-minute workshop, we’ll explore Presenter Coach inside Microsoft PowerPoint together, from how to get it set up, to how to read its feedback. Then, we’ll share how you and your students can use this tool inside your class to build confidence for those asked to speak in front of others. Who knows – you may even learn a thing or two about your own presentation style!
By the end of this workshop, you’ll be able to use Presenter Coach inside Microsoft PowerPoint with ease, understand how and where to find feedback, and how this tool can be used inside your classroom to reduce overwhelm and worry when it comes to presenting.
