I had the enjoyment on Thursday evening to take part in EduIgnite Wellington. This was a relaxing evening connecting with teachers and educators from across the region for fast-paced presentations – 5 minutes each with 20 slides auto-advancing every 15 seconds.
EduIgnite evenings have some rules (other than 5 minutes as above). The first evening is a freebie. You can turn up and just enjoy the evening. From then on, if you attend an evening you must either present or bring a friend. As I had been before I had to present something.
I decided to present on my masters research, which as it turns out was probably not the wisest decision! Getting 30000+ words and two years work into a 5 minute talk is not possible, at least not for me. I managed to fumble my way through though and I think a couple of the key messages got out.
Here are the slides for my presentation. EduIgnite presentations are recorded also and will be made available soon.
