Ignite!-ing AERA

aphoto49721I’m excited to have been invited to present during a Presidential Session at the American Educational Research Association Conference this coming week in San Francisco, CA.  Many of you may be familiar with my previous work in organizing a PechaKucha session for the ACPA-College Student Educators, International Convention this past spring.  For those of you unfamiliar, PechaKucha is a style of presentation where there are 20 slides, each displayed for 20 seconds, and they are automatically set to advance while the presenter speaks over them.  It is a fun but very challenging presentation style.

aeralogoAt AREA I will be presenting in a variant style of PechaKucha known as an “Ignite.”  The only difference between the two is that Ignite presentations only show the slides for 15 seconds each.  The resulting presentation is 5 minutes long instead of 6 minutes and 40 seconds.  The presentation I am doing is a new and improved version of my PechaKucha from ACPA.  It is titled “The Emergence of the Student Cyborg” and is embedded below.  Viewing the slides won’t help you much, as most of the presentation is what is given verbally, but it will at least give you a preview.
