Deanna Reder

Reder_Deanna-25fin_websizeDeanna wanted to use her opportunity in the EMP program to expand her toolkit, and become more versed in the creation of educational media. Specifically, she wanted to draw on First Nations oral traditions and use audio merged together with her custom powerpoint deck to create a learning artifact with some real impact. Although powerpoint was familiar to her, creating this artifact required a deeper understanding of the tool, and some extensive research to gather the images she wanted to use.  In her words…

While I began by collecting images to use in a powerpoint, Adam and Jason showed me that I could use Moviemaker and therefore include a downloaded version of Thomas King’s voice! While I am a novice at this sort of thing, and wouldn’t know that by clicking on the title or even the slide to the left will begin the movie, you might already notice the cues that let you see what we’ve done.

 

She has posted the finished work on her blog, but we have also copied it to the link below.

TITLE
Make is descriptive, meaningful and conversational. Google loves titles and the more keywords you can pack in there the easier it makes it to find later. And for people too!

IMAGES/PLAYERS
Always lead your post with a full width Image or Player window. The player should have a splash page if possible, but at least not a black box with a play button. Also a good idea to check across platforms and devices occasionally to make your technique is working out. When you add you image or media to the library try to fill out he metadata even though it seems redundant. This all aides usability later on.

BODY
Each post must have a short description in text. Its always a good idea to add any extra links as icing as long as they are relevant to the post and add extra value. If possible, tell a story! But at the very least dont be shy about letting a little of your personality in your writing.
