Ch. 6: Classroom to Boardroom: Emerging Technologies for Effective Presentations
From the Book: The Refractive Thinker®: Vol. IX: Effective Business Practices in Leadership and Emerging Technologies


The world is changing fast, e-learning is exploding, and emerging technologies are abundant (Diamandis & Kotler, 2012; Sclater, 2010). What are emerging technologies one day is the norm the next (Doherty, 1993). Educators and facilitators need to prepare learners and business leaders to embrace emerging technologies and encourage students to use them. This chapter is about three emerging technologies (Prezi, Animoto, & Digital Storytelling) used in presentation’s. Business leaders of the future must understand the importance of new technologies, how to use emerging technologies as effective business strategies, and the value emerging technologies can provide businesses.
