The World Starts With Me


Today's Lesson

This final session is not so much about learning but about doing. We are going to prepare an exhibition and a presentation. This is the public opening of The World Starts With Me.

This is our chance to show the world what we have been doing and making, the experiences and ideas we have shared over these last few weeks. This is a chance to get other people involved in our movement.

  • Make an exhibition and a presentation to show what you have learned and made during the fourteen lessons.
  • Don't forget your online presentation (see 'results' for examples). The world is waiting to see what you have made!

Tips for making an online school's presentation

To make an online presentation for the 'results' section, go to 'schools presentations' in the results section, login with the teacher's or the student's login, then choose your school from the drop down menu. There you will find the instructions you need to upload your files. It is pretty straightforward if you follow the instructions on the page. If you want more information, please check the teacher's manual.

Before you start, prepare the following:

  • nine images, landscape, 215 pixels wide and 125 pixels high
  • three texts, telling something about your school, what students have learned in the lessons, and which messages they
    would like to share with other young people
  • the names of participating students and teachers

See the 'results' section for examples of online presentations from the The World Starts With Me pilot.

Presentation skills
Students prepare and practice a presentation of their work/message. Here are some presentation tips for students:


  • Prepare your presentation well, decide which items you think are most important and make a list, maybe even a note
    that will help you during your presentation.
  • If possible, start your presentation with something to attract people's attention: a joke, an anecdote or maybe a
    question.The 'tell, tell, tell principle': repeat your message again and again!

2. Materials

  • If you use the computer to show things on, make sure that everything is working properly.
  • Do a try-out, make sure that things like the Internet connection, power supply, or anything else will not ruin your
    presentation. Have an alternative presentation ready in case of ... (maybe use prints as back up).
  • Also make sure you are no more involved with the material you show than what is in your presentation itself.

3. While talking

  • Try to keep eye contact with your audience; try to keep them involved through eye contact and ask them if they
    understand what you are talking about. Especially when they have a question, repeat the question so the whole
    audience can hear; and when you have answered the question, ask if it has been answered well. Keep them involved.
  • Speak loud and clear
  • Mind your posture; relax

4. Ending

  • Ask for feedback, and if possible, plan a conversation at the end to have some interaction with your audience.
  • Repeat the main points of what you have been talking about and make a polite ending to your presentation.
