ZEN and TECH 42: Keynotes


Nice clip for tips and tricks, but those are just bandaids for American society. American's have acquired a fear, mistrust and resentment for those that speak well and are educated. This fear manifests itself by literally stealing the voice from our younger generation. As an acting and voice teacher, the simple task of having a college student stand up and read a poem, or a newspaper article incites an inability to speak. It's a systemic problem facing America that regions like the UK don't suffer from as voice is taught from an early age. This simple act of forcing a student once a week to stand up in front of the class and read a poem, wipes away tons of issues with regard to child literacy. I guarantee you if a student can't read and knows they are going to have to speak from text, they will work harder to learn, and the speech will help teachers immediately know who needs their attention more. But I digress, nice work guys.

Great tips and explanation guys!
I do give presentations myself regularly ad it's still a skill that needs to be taken care of to improve and gain confidence.
