Passion Project Description

In my Passion project I am going to doing a draw my life about how I got into video games and how they are one of my passions. I am going to be doing it on a whiteboard with whiteboard markers, whiteboard erasers and possibly some spray. I am going to do a voice over and maybe add some music and also either speed up the video or do picture by picture, something like that.

Birke Baehr TED Talk

I think the main messages are that you should check where things come from before you eat them and to try and get farmers to stop put bad things into there plants and soil and stuff like that.

He got his message across to his audience by showing pictures, speaking loud and clear and saying powerful facts or questions like “would you rather pay the farmer or the hospital” and how our meat is not just pigs rolling around in the mud and cows grazing grass and other facts like these ones.

The technical support he used was a big screen and a remote to control the slides on the big screen.

Some good presentation techniques he used well were him speaking loud, using a bit of comedy and also using heaps of facts in his script.

Richard Turere TED Talk

Richard Turere speaks at the TED2013 conference in Long Beach, Calif. With a simple invention, the Kenyan teen figured out a way to keep cows and their predators safe.

I think the main messages in this TED Talk is that you don’t need much to create a lot and that you can do anything if you put your mind to it.

He got his messages across to his audience by showing images of the trouble that the lions caused him, some were quite violent so that he could really give a powerful message. He also tried to use the easiest words to make it easier for the audience to understand what he was saying.

The Technical support he used was the big screen and the remote for the big screen to control the slides.

The presentation techniques he used to get across to his audience were the slides on the big screen, the violent images to get a powerful messages across to his audience and he sometimes smiled to get his audience to laugh.

Thomas Suarez TED Talk

I think the main message in this is that any body has the power to make an app and put it on the app store, including teachers because they can use these things to there advantage to enhance the learning of students.

The messages got across to the audience by talking to them in a way that they can understand, like you would do in a meeting, you need to make everything clear, including the message/messages that you are trying to share.

The technical support he used was a ipad to across and to know what he was going t say or what points he was going to bring up in the TED Talk, a remote to slide between different slides on a big screen used to show the slides.

I think the good presentation techniques he used were the slideshow because he could show and tell what he was saying at the same time and the way he talked in a very calm and clear way.
