Raman Chadha (of the Coleman Entrepreneurship Center) sent me information about a new presentation/teaching tool that looks interesting. Soapbox is “designed to help teachers and speakers better engage their audiences and assess their learning.”
I have seen other tools (or combination of tools) so something similar (i.e. clickers, Twitter, Poll Everywhere), but I think I will give this a shot (and have signed up for an account). Waiting to see how well this works. The one piece of advice I have for the software developers is to employ a different voice for the demo video (see below) - more enthusiasm would be appreciated…..
