Personal & Digital Presentations

No matter where your career path may lead you, you will surely need to present your ideas and visions with others in order to achieve your goals.  Doctors, lawyers, scientists, construction workers, military personnel, artists, marketing professionals, computer programmers, retail and restaurant employees all must be able to present themselves in an organized, competent, and professional manner in order to effectively share ideas, influence others, and spur change.
 
In this module, we will use a variety of technologies in order to support the presentation of your ideas and viewpoint.  You will learn the importance of PREPARING in advance for personal and digital presentations.  You will use guidelines to help you to define your purpose, craft your message, and make an impact on your audience.  You will also have the opportunity to collaborate "virtually" with team members in order to produce a collaborative presentation.  The skills you learn in this module will support your success here in high school, in higher education and/or the workplace and in your role as a consumer and citizen.
