IGNITE! Sequence Starts Now!

Panel-A-2013-300x225

The IT4K12 Conference Steering Committee is looking for excited IGNITERS for the wrap-up session on November 4th at the IT4K12 conference!

We need 10 – yes TEN – enthusiastic and brave speakers to IGNITE! some added passion in conference participants as they head back to their schools and Districts after two days of talking about Transforming the Learning Landscape.  If you haven’t attended an IGNITE! session before, you’re in for a treat.  It’s fast-paced, fun, thought-provoking and usually inspirational.

We are looking for both educators and IT professionals who are excited about how we are all working together at Transforming the Learning Landscape.   Our goal is to have five educators and five IT professionals but, as always, we’re flexible!

The format is simple but challenging, which is where the fun comes in.  Each speaker has exactly 5 minutes and exactly 20 slides that advance automatically every 15 seconds whether you are ready or not.  At 5 minutes sharp, you are done and the next speaker takes over.  There are many resources on the web to show you how IGNITE works and how to prepare.  We’ve chosen one that we thought might be helpful so take a look.

During your 5 minutes of fame, you get to share your excitement and passion about the theme of the session – Transforming the Learning Landscape!  You can talk about what has been done, what is being done, what should be done, or even what you would do if you were Queen/King of education for a day, or 5 years!  It really is up to you how you fill your 5 minutes as long as it’s on theme.

We will need your slides in advance of the conference so advance-planning is a must.  If you’re attending IT4K12 and want to help IGNITE! some passion as the conference winds down, please let us know as soon as possible by sending an email to Aman at events@bcerac.ca.  Don’t delay – get in touch today!
