As teachers we’re faced with the realization that students raised on digital technologies, smart phones, hot spots, and Comedy Central yearn to connect with educational content through more diverse and engaging digital forms. Public Speaking in the 21st Century is the first “born digital” public speaking textbook in which text functions as but one important platform for students to engage. Equal parts book, film, animation, role-playing and always interactive, this “textbook experience” will have your students talking, your lectures popping, and the world of public speaking recalibrated and re-engineered for our digital age.
Follow Laura, her roommates, T.A. Robert and a host of other characters as they navigate their way through public speaking. Read along as Aristotle gets a uniquely American update and the Sophists at last get their pedagogical say. Watch as YouTube and other web-based digital content gets leveraged for illustrative effect. And perhaps best of all, know that our dynamic platform is always ready to be customized to reflect your own needs as a teacher of this ancient (and harrowing) art. Owned and operated by professors, Flip Learning’s Public Speaking in the 21st Century promises to forever change the way you and your students experience textbooks.
