Encienda EduCon

Session Description

Join us for 2 sessions of "lightning presentations" delivered by EduCon participants. Each presenter will have 5 minutes to share an idea, broken down into 20 slides, which automatically advance every 15 seconds. Encienda EduCon will take place during lunch on both Saturday and Sunday.

For an example of a "lightning presentation" check out this video of Chris Lehmann explaining his ideas about "school 2.0".
