Seems like the presentation I gave at the London Book Fair was very popular! Well, the turn out was very good, with people unable to get in for lack of seats. So, here then I post up my presentation slides in PDF), in case anyone missed it.
This is an update of an earlier version. I seem to give this talk annually, so I figured I should do a bit of work on it and then re-post. Is this an acceptable thing to do on a blog?
A couple of years ago I watched the [url=http://www.paulmccartney.com]Paul McCartney[/url] 'Back in the US' film of his tour, I was impressed by the incredible collage of digital film, animation and video that was projected behind the stage. Maybe this is typical now at pop concerts. I have heard about VJs, a new breed of nightclub and dance scene entrepreneurs who can construct, in real time, mixed digital video projected to go with the music.
Of course this may be a far cry from standing in front of class to give a 'Powerpoint' presentation, but still it's a performance, and how can we make it work well?
