ECE 201 Learning Theorist Presentation: Home

Your Assignment

You and your partner(s) will learn a bit about a learning theorist who's work has been influential to the field of Early Childhood Education.

For this project you'll have to:

  1. Conduct research to find at least three resources (other than course textbooks) that will inform you of the theorist's life, ideas, and impact.
  2. Design a multi-media presentation that is visually appealing and easy to read and understand.
  3. Create a short interactive assessment to gauge what your classmates learned from your presentation.

More information about the assignment and expectations will be provided in-class.

Presentation Tips

A student giving a presentation. The slide projected on the screen reads "I'm so tired give me an A"

  1. Practice! Especially if you get nervous
  2. Stay organized from the beginning- think about your audience, what questions they're likely to have and what order would be most helpful for them to learn this new information
  3. Define new terms- if it was new to you it will probably be new to everyone
  4. Don't put everything you're going to say on your slide- keep slides simple, they should only work if you're there with them!
  5. Use big fonts so your audience can read the presentation easily
  6. Get excited about your topic, and try to connect it to your audience's experiences so they can be excited and interested too!
