I am an inspirational speaker for the Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES) annual conference on February 14, 2013 in San Diego, California.
During my motivational speech, I am delighted to be utilizing a student response system audience polling technology from Turning Technologies called, TurningPoint 5 Anywhere Polling.
This unique technology allows a guest speaker to ask questions( poll participants), collect responses, and create instant charts and graphs illustrating audience response. To further the learning, it allows you to save your session, perform assessments, track performance and ultimately facilitate better learning.
When I am an inspirational speaker for the healthcare educators, every participant will have a hand held device that allows them to respond to pre- planned questions- the software will give us immediate feedback. This real time feedback will allow me to adjust my instruction to the needs of the participants during the motivational speech.
This technology is geared towards educators to help them facilitate better student learning and engagement. In their UTube Video,Turning Technologies suggests that todays students, known as digital natives have an average attention span of 7 minutes or less ( I have heard much less). Using student response systems can improve student achievement and test scores by 15-30% and more.
I am looking forward to being an inspirational speaker for the healthcare educators and test driving the technology during my motivational speech, Daring to be Caring: How to Inspire a Committed & Engaged Workforce.
