Same old, Same old exciting presenatations

Being the Presenter or Coach:

Standing in front of a group and disseminating information is a part of life. Either you get the luxury (or pain) of being the person standing up front, or you are attending a function where someone else is speaking. Being a teacher and coach myself, I am constantly evaluating the speaker and developing new ways to give out information. I want to make the experience as memorable as possible. If I'm speaking, I want to make sure that what I'm saying is remembered by those in attendance. If I attend a workshop, I want to remember what I'm taught. Since I probably suffer from some attentional issues I need every presentation to be exciting, interesting, and memorable as possible. I try and do that every day in my classroom by introducing as many ways to deliver content as possible. Here are some cool tools I've found, comment on any you have found to add to this list:

Understanding learning styles and Multiple intelligences:
