Last year I presented in my first EduIgnite evening. I blogged about it at the time, including the presentation: EduIgnite Wellington – My presentation.
I have just received the video of my presentation and discovered it actually went better than I thought! Still though, I would say… don’t try to bring your masters research down to a 5 minute presentation! It doesn’t work!
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.
Others that presented had some great messages to share! Check them out on this Storify (thanks Karen!).
