Reflection: Adjustments to Practice The Student Becomes The Teacher - Section 5: Evaluate


After viewing the presentations and listening to student feedback, I was very impressed with the quality of the Ignites! Students did a great job of abandoning the heavy text and bullet approach to creating slide shows and easily transitioned to using images and symbols to activate student interest and spark discussion.

However, the one thing that was tough for them was the timing. They had so much to share about what they learned, that 15 seconds per slide was often too short and left them cut off in the middle of their presentation. Because this was their first attempt and because (more importantly) I was more interested in the content than the delivery, I decided to let them move slides manually so that they had a little more time to share information if needed. This may be something I alter as we do these again in the future.
