Presentation Technology Options for Harlem Renaissance Project

Today’s workplaces require that meet the demand for a new type of audience that has come to expect easy to access digital information. This requires that we become familiar with tools that make us adept to communicate through the use of captivating images and digital media.

The Harlem Renaissance Research Project is a wonderful opportunity to learn to create a visually stimulating presentations and familiarize ourselves with tools to communicate our messages and learning effectively.  Your final project will be evaluated by a real audience that will include peers who like you demand high quality visuals and audio that keep them interested.

Below is a menu of a few of the favorite tools that are available. CHOOSE WISELY!

The tool you choose should be compatible with you and your partner’s vision, intent, and skill.  DO NOT select something that will make life more complicated than it needs to be.  There is nothing worse than spending more time trying to figure out the tech than you do on the research and content.

I also recommend that you visit youtube to see some tutorials and samples.  For those of you who are not feeling adventurous, feel free keep it simple with Google Slides an then use a screen cast software to add audio.

Whatever the means, the point is for you to showcase your ideas and to have a tool that you can use later to showcase your ideas and basic tech know-how.
