    Builds awareness, engages, invites, collaborative, provokes, opens up new possibilities, creates new learning and knowledge… #cuechat

  • CrazySciTeach Apr 10 @ 10:06 PM EDT
    A1: presenters energy, positive energy can be contagious. Also sandbox time, I want to play #cuechat
  • judyblakeney Apr 10 @ 10:07 PM EDT
    A1: Storytelling and consistent images make the difference! Here's a planner I created for students and teachers to use...Let me know your thoughts #cuechat https://t.co/fHrKo2P7wr
  • beardsleyteach - Moderator Apr 10 @ 10:07 PM EDT
    I love a charismatic presenter. Someone whose personality comes through and they seem at ease guiding the discussion. Also...tell me something I don't know! If it's not an original thought, then at least have your own spin & something new, not just regurgitation #cuechat
  • CampsCrusaders Apr 10 @ 10:07 PM EDT
    A1: Presenter is enthusiastic, presentation is engaging, has examples of how to use in my classroom, gives us time to try it out and is there to assist. #cuechat
  • CrazySciTeach Apr 10 @ 10:07 PM EDT

  • Citizensowls Apr 10 @ 10:08 PM EDT
    A1: Interactive, allows time for questions, considers all learners in audience, shares successes and failures, excited and honest energy #keepitreal #failup #cuechat
  • herrplatt Apr 10 @ 10:08 PM EDT
    A1: I think it’s about stage presence - how the presenter engages. What’s on the screen can be minimal & direct us along as we engage w/ the presenter. #cuechat

    #cuechat Becca, Instructional Coach at K-5 School @sanmarcostigers just joining in! A1: Love someone who is passionate about their topic, has REAL examples, takeaways I can use, and def not trying to sell me something ;)
  • MathPrincessC Apr 10 @ 10:08 PM EDT
    A1) Anything that is simple enough for the teacher to implement right away. Also, something that approaches learning from a different perspective #CUECHAT
  • beardsleyteach - Moderator Apr 10 @ 10:08 PM EDT
    YES! I love sandbox time, especially in a traditional conference setting. Time to challenge the status quo a bit. I always appreciate think time, especially if I'm given lots to explore! #cuechat

    Here's a pro tip from a seasoned vet: if you're incorporating sandbox time that means exploring links, have a backup plan in case the WiFi is down... #justsayin #cuechat
  • herrplatt Apr 10 @ 10:11 PM EDT
    A1.2: and that engagement takes many forms: play, q&a, running around..... #cuechat

    #CUECHAT Q2: What are ways to engage your attendees besides awesome slides?
  • LSpencerEdD Apr 10 @ 10:12 PM EDT
    A1: Centered around pedagogy, w/the tool as the supporting actor. Builds the WHY before the WHAT & HOW. Gives examples, time to explore, and has an implementation plan #CUEChat
  • jcorippo Apr 10 @ 10:12 PM EDT
    #cuechat A1b: READ THIS FOR BETTER STORYLINES: https://t.co/uD3llB7fbM thanks to @jkloczko for the share!

    A1 - when it is a conversation and not a lecture #CUECHAT
    In reply to @jcorippo
  • msbaker62 Apr 10 @ 10:12 PM EDT
    A1 I think a good prezo depends upon the audience and purpose. Am I presenting a task/protocol or trying to inspire? Those prezos look different #cuechat
  • CrazySciTeach Apr 10 @ 10:13 PM EDT
    for sure, turn and talk time can be a great backup plan for tech issues, especially when in most conferences you may not know who you're sitting next to so you can collaborate more #cuechat

  • room46 Apr 10 @ 10:13 PM EDT
    #cuechat I love new ideas that I can take back to the classroom
  • herrplatt Apr 10 @ 10:13 PM EDT

    LOL. Lectures are boring for us. Imagine how bored our students are when we lecture... #CUECHAT

    Can't stand lecture. #cuechat
    In reply to @jenwagner, @jcorippo
  • AprilBuege - Moderator Apr 10 @ 10:14 PM EDT
    A2: collaborative activities and that cool augmented reality stuff I keep seeing could be a cool way to pull peeps in and spark a learning experience #cuechat
  • LSpencerEdD Apr 10 @ 10:14 PM EDT
    A1: And of course, avoids the Death by PowerPoint presentation fails #CUEChat
  • jenwagner Apr 10 @ 10:14 PM EDT
    A2 - ask for audience insights — don’t even use slides — have people group up into smaller groups — Don’t use the time for marketing #CUECHAT
  • BHenigSME Apr 10 @ 10:14 PM EDT
    #cuechat A2: Participation from group is great. Letting Ts be the Ss to try out new ideas and think how they can use in own rooms. @PearDeck is awesome for this as well
    • jcorippo Apr 10 @ 10:12 PM EDT
      #CUECHAT Q2: What are ways to engage your attendees besides awesome slides?
  • DCulberhouse Apr 10 @ 10:14 PM EDT
    Always appreciate short clips that support the message, push it further, provide context to the message… Get them talking, sharing, collaborating, working, playing. #cuechat
    In reply to @jcorippo
  • beardsleyteach - Moderator Apr 10 @ 10:15 PM EDT
    Make 'em laugh. Not like stand up comedy, but be REAL. Share a funny quip or comment, appear to be human. Talk w/ your attendees as they arrive, introduce yourself. I had chocolate on my front table & my opening slide had an arrow saying "come get chocolate & say hello" #cuechat
    • jcorippo Apr 10 @ 10:12 PM EDT
      #CUECHAT Q2: What are ways to engage your attendees besides awesome slides?
  • judyblakeney Apr 10 @ 10:15 PM EDT
    A2: Must have interaction with other participants. Often quick reps of a skill to build confidence and creativity too #cuechat

    In reply to @LSpencerEdD, @BoeschTeach
  • msbaker62 Apr 10 @ 10:15 PM EDT
    A2 I try to have T's interact as both S's and T's. They understand the experience and then they can manipulate it to fit their classroom #cuechat
  • beardsleyteach - Moderator Apr 10 @ 10:16 PM EDT
    True story: my turn & talk at #CUE18 when the WiFi bottomed out & I needed to switch over to my downloaded stuff was "turn & tell your neighbor where you went for lunch today" LOL. #cuechat
    In reply to @CrazySciTeach
  • jenwagner Apr 10 @ 10:16 PM EDT
    A2 Asked their names and then use their names and then come back to them again saying their name #CUECHAT
  • herrplatt Apr 10 @ 10:16 PM EDT
    A2: besides an awesome dance? Talking, working, playing w/ us #cuechat
    In reply to @jcorippo
  • MathPrincessC Apr 10 @ 10:16 PM EDT
    A2) When the presenter ask the attendees for opinions, thoughts or suggestions. It empowers everyone and gets attendees REALLY thinking. Like suddenly, I think I'm gonna try this in my room cuz I thought about it hard enough to share at a conference! #CUECHAT
  • CampsCrusaders Apr 10 @ 10:17 PM EDT
    A2: Having a discussion with the attendees instead of talking at them, show a video clip from your class doing what ever you are presenting on, engage them through real classroom examples and failures. #cuechat
    • jcorippo Apr 10 @ 10:12 PM EDT
      #CUECHAT Q2: What are ways to engage your attendees besides awesome slides?
  • LSpencerEdD Apr 10 @ 10:17 PM EDT
    A2: Interactivity is key. Visible Thinking Routines work. Opportunities to talk w/colleagues. Silliness is always nice. High energy always. #CUEChat
  • BHenigSME Apr 10 @ 10:17 PM EDT
    Oh, and a raffle! Who doesn't like to win a prize?! #cuechat
    In reply to @PearDeck
  • Mr_JVD Apr 10 @ 10:17 PM EDT
    #CUECHAT A1: When the presenter keeps moving, has multi-media, and a great sense of humor.
  • CrazySciTeach Apr 10 @ 10:17 PM EDT
    A2: making connections with attendees, have attendees connect with each other. was in a session with @kat_goyette where she had everyone write twitter handles on the whiteboard so we could all make those connections #cuechat
  • MathPrincessC Apr 10 @ 10:17 PM EDT
    yeah. I really like this group concept #CUECHAT
    In reply to @jenwagner
  • EddiesClass Apr 10 @ 10:17 PM EDT
    A2) honesty, sharing pitfalls with success. I appreciate authenticity #cuechat #noCookieCutter
  • herrplatt Apr 10 @ 10:17 PM EDT
    A2.2: my first @jcorippo cue sesh was YEARS ago and explored app smashing. Short but he engaged and went through an example w/ participants #cuechat
  • Cbustamante2222 Apr 10 @ 10:17 PM EDT
    A2: Get up and do something- move, dance, share, DO! The smartest in the room is the room- use them! Show the goods and let them go! #cuechat
  • beardsleyteach - Moderator Apr 10 @ 10:17 PM EDT
    I agree! Prizes make everything more fun! Have STICKERS too! #cuechat

    Right. So on point. #CUECHAT

  • DCulberhouse Apr 10 @ 10:18 PM EDT
    Play is as much a cognitive space, as it is a physical space. We need to try to spend more time playing in the cognitive spaces…where we tinker with ideas. Our mental garage. #cuechat
  • sdpaulette Apr 10 @ 10:18 PM EDT
    A3: A favorite quote related to the topic I am presenting on #CUECHAT
  • LSpencerEdD Apr 10 @ 10:18 PM EDT
    Knowing audience is a good point - ppl who submit same session to many conferences need to adapt the content for the ppl attending. Know their purpose for attending. #CUEChat
    In reply to @msbaker62
  • Mr_JVD Apr 10 @ 10:18 PM EDT
    #CUECHAT I know that @dailystem brings chocolate! A2: interactive, encourage questions, more pictures and less words

    In reply to @beardsleyteach
  • Citizensowls Apr 10 @ 10:19 PM EDT
    A2: Give Ts time to collaborate w/each other throughout the presentation, not just at the end. Give time to play with new ideas/concepts/tools. Have them share their ah-ha moments in real time. #cuechat
    • jcorippo Apr 10 @ 10:12 PM EDT
      #CUECHAT Q2: What are ways to engage your attendees besides awesome slides?
  • beardsleyteach - Moderator Apr 10 @ 10:19 PM EDT
    On the topic of prizes...start by letting people know if they stick around till the end you'll be giving away a prize! I've done stickers taped to the underside of chairs, @Flipgrid Classroom license, and other little things. #cuechat

    In reply to @jcorippo
  • kfairchild6 Apr 10 @ 10:20 PM EDT
    A3 #cuechat Start before the session even begins. Walk the room, play music, talk to the people there. Make connections.
  • jenwagner Apr 10 @ 10:20 PM EDT
    A3 - Have your session ready to go at least 10 minutes before it starts so you’re already chatting with people getting to know names laughing feeling out the audience finding out information about people so When people walk in they will be already engaged #CUECHAT
  • CrazySciTeach Apr 10 @ 10:20 PM EDT
    A3: Survey of where everyone is at, helps you know where beginners are to make sure you go back and check on them, also helps you find "experts" that you may be able to lean on for extra hands #cuechat
  • LSpencerEdD Apr 10 @ 10:20 PM EDT
    A2: My fave exit activity is to write down what you will implement in next week, add your contact info, & trade w/someone you don’t know. Follow up w/each other as encouragement/support #CUEChat
  • CampsCrusaders Apr 10 @ 10:20 PM EDT
    A3: I like to play music when people come in and kick off the presentation with a video, if I can find one. #cuechat

  • beardsleyteach - Moderator Apr 10 @ 10:21 PM EDT
    A3 cont: I always have fun, upbeat music playing before a session. And I love @lhighfill 's "session before the session" where she plays fun YouTube videos and chats about them w/ the audience. #cuechat
  • judyblakeney Apr 10 @ 10:21 PM EDT
    A3: music to start...theme...competition...story that is meaningful...authentic presence...connections to people as individuals #cuechat #cuerockstar of course

  • Mr_JVD Apr 10 @ 10:23 PM EDT
    #CUECHAT A3: Something funny...preferably a video. Jokes are usually laughed at...but only because people want to be nice. Get me laughing right away and I'll probably pay attention!

    A3) I wish a presenter would start off the presentation with like a one minute dance. LOL. Never seen that yet. Don't even know if it's practical... ya know... I'm in my world.... #CUECHAT

    In reply to @beardsleyteach, @MathPrincessC
  • jenwagner Apr 10 @ 10:23 PM EDT
    A3 - Get to know people before the session so that you can name drop them into the session — it makes them feel important — it’s spotlights them as a leader or an expert and it makes the session about everyone and not you #CUECHAT
  • herrplatt Apr 10 @ 10:23 PM EDT
    A3.2 I tried my “Welcome to Amway” intro a couple times.... doesn’t always work. I don’t do it anymore. #cuechat
