These days the students have had first presentations. Some of them deserved praise, whereas the others were not good enough. For this reason I have decided to sum up the main activities, which should be made for preparing and having a high-quality presentation (see detailed recommendations in “Prepare and have a good presentation” in the fold Computer English on the FEL intranet).
Step 1: Study materials concerning the topic you have chosen. Start with the appropriate text in Computer English or Internet English and follow hyperlinks that attract their interest or attention.
Step 2: Prepare an outline of your future presentation. Look through the gathered materials and order them in accordance with the outline.
Step 3: Prepare a list of main technical terms and acronyms you are going to use in your oral presentation.
Step 4: Draw a scheme of your presentation based on the outline and ordered materials (see examples of such schemes on this blog in
Step 5: Try to have the presentation using the scheme at home. Remember it should take about 5-6 minutes not more.
When presenting before the audience:
Do not forget: your presentation should be clear and interesting for your audience. Be prepared to take issue with your colleagues and to answer all questions. Keep the length of the presentation, i.e. 5-6 minutes.
Moreover, contribute to building the vocabulary concerning computers and the Internet. Put into the comments to the post words and expressions you meet and use when writing and speaking technical texts or preparing presentations.
GOOD LUCK !
