Why you want to put the activity first

Commentary by Stephen Downes

One of the canonical rules regarding presentations is this: "Do the demo first." Instead, most conference prsenters pile on loads of theory and reserach, saving the demo for a very rused final five minuted. The result? Bad presentations. Much the same principle can be applied to online learning. Do the activities first. Have people try something out and find the problems for themselves. Then - in the big 'reveal' - show them what the reserach shows and how to address what they're looking at.
