15 minutes after I presented a new presentation I have put together where the audience makes BrushArtBots, I launched a new presentation. Last year I crafted this presentation and it was my most successful and popular presentation by far. The challenge I made for myself for this summer and upcoming school year was to not duplicate any material and try to be a bit outside the normal zone of ideas that are typically shared. One thing that I am starting to see at conferences is the same ideas being spewed over and over. I want something fresh. Even if you don’t know what I am talking about or you have no idea how you could apply what I am sharing it is at least getting you to think differently. You can see what I shared in version 1.0 in the link above or check out my Presentation page here on the site.
Here are my slides that I crafted for #TIC14
I needed another 30 minutes. As I was planning these slides I did not think I had enough, but my audience was awesome. They talked, they asked great questions, and shared some important ideas that were good for me to think about as well as the rest of the group. When launching a new session you never quite know how it will go. My audience was a great turnout so I had to deliver.
My goal was to not only deliver websites and apps and toys, but to also have them think about ideas in education. I weaved in a lot of past blog posts and short presentations I have done during the past school year to my school and so forth. I have some things to tweak, but overall I received a lot of positive feedback which means I am on the right track.
If you attended I would love to know what you plan on using and what stood out to you. For me, I was so pumped once I got going. I already have ideas for V3.0
Thank you to everyone who attended. I always appreciate presenting to more than an empty room.
Below are the questions and ideas shared on Todaysmeet.com during the presentation. I always take time afterwards to respond to them all. If you have further questions, ideas, suggestions, etc. please contact me and let me know. My responses are in bold.
