I made a TED Talk about How We Can Save The Environment. I had causes and effects. Most people put a paragraph or more on each slide but I put like then 1 sentence. On each slide I put a photo and a BLACK background. This will help the audience to not think that they have to read an entire paragraph. Trust me it helped me get better compliments and a better grade for my presentation.
When you are presenting, make sure you speak clearly, make eye contact with the audience and don’t stare at your note cards. That is how you make a bad presentation. Not only should you speak clearly but make sure to speak loud. If your voice is quiet the audience might not even be able to hear you presenting.
Steps to make the TED Talk:
1) Decision: This is when you think about something you already know some about, because then you would have to start something new and it will take a lot longer to make. Make this topic something that effects your life and that you are passionate about.
2) Research: This is when you write down what you know and find out more about the topic. You can look things up on Wikipedia and add the link or look information up on Google and click on a site and find information there.
3) Slides: Add all of you information on note cards. Then in to Google slides find photos that fit with what you are talking about and organize them. Make sure to add the links. Don’t put more than 2 sentences on a slide.
4) Pictures: Add pictures that connect with what you are talking about. Make sure the background behind the picture is black or the picture is in full bleed (which means taking up the full page). Add the links on to your citations slide.
5) Prepare: This is probably one of the most important steps. Make sure you present your full presentation to someone or to your self. Make sure to time yourself and see if you can make it longer if it is to long.
6) Present: In this step you will present your TED Talk. Be loud, so everyone can hear you. Be funny, so your talk is not boring. And be enthusiastic, to engage the audience. At the end thank your audience for listening and tell tour call of action. For example, my TED Talk was about the environment, so I would say: I want y’all to go home and pick up trash or not litter.
Now you are done. You did sooooo well. Answer any questions your audience has. Boom.
