Your Name and Title: John Graves, PhD Student


School, Library, or Organization Name: AUT University


Co-Presenter Name(s): Computer generated voices


Country from Which You Will Present: New Zealand


Language in Which You Will Present: English


Target Audience (such as primary school teachers, high school administrators, students, etc.): On-line educators


Short Session Description (one line): Collaborating to build a Wikipedia-scale resource of cross-cultural learning materials


Full Session Description (one paragraph minimum):

A typical presentation consists of a set of slides and is usually delivered by a speaker in one language. With SlideSpeech, a slide presentation is delivered by a computer voice reading a script. When that script and the associated slides are translated, the computer can deliver the talk in the other language. This becomes very informative when the two talks run in parallel, where left/right transitions between slides and up/down toggles between the languages. There is nothing quite like this for cross-cultural understanding: seeing and hearing a talk simultaneously in multiple languages.

If students and educators learn the two steps to get started using SlideSpeech (add speaker notes to slides, send the presentation to SlideSpeech), we can all use the system (as we all use Wikipedia) to collaboratively address global awareness, global competency, and inspire and guide action towards solving real–world problems.

Please make a SlideSpeech presentation of your own before this session. Simply add a voice over script to the speaker notes of a slide and e-mail it to convert@slidespeech.com.

This is not a technology conference. Please read our mission statement and revise if you would still like to present.

Thanks,

I presented last year (GEC 2011) on one feature of the system

SlideSpeech: Present Directly to Video Using Text-to-Speech

and SlideSpeech has seen extensive development since then:

This year's talk is not about the technology. The key now is to understand the change in our relationship with knowledge so we can benefit from tools like SlideSpeech which can explain things and provide feedback on demand.

If students and educators learn the two steps to get started using SlideSpeech (add speaker notes to slides, send the presentation to SlideSpeech), we can all use the system (as we all use Wikipedia) to collaboratively address global awareness, global competency, and inspire and guide action towards solving real–world problems.

The proposal as it currently stands does not relate strongly to the mission of our conference. In last year's proposal, you mentioned cross-cultural implications and that's probably why it was accepted. 

If you would like to be considered, you need to go to the OPTIONS button and edit your proposal to make a strong connection. You may want to use some of the language you've posted in the reply. It needs to be in the body of your proposal.

Global educators may be particularly interested in seeing the SlideSpeech system present in multiple languages simultaneously (press up arrow to toggle language between English and German).

If you can add what you've elaborating on here in the comments to the body of your proposal, I'll accept it. Thanks!

LG

If you would like your proposal to be considered for the 2012 Global Education conference, please make any changes by October 29th.
