Ignite Presentations

Today, we started work on our Ignite Presentations. We watched a few examples of Ignite videos and talked about some characteristics they all have in common and some techniques each presenter used in unique ways to make his or her presentation particularly effective.

Some Examples:

Why Blog?

My Beautiful Wheelchair

How and Why to Make Video Games

We are starting out by planning our Ignite Presentations on paper (that we folded into eighths) and will talk about next steps later this week. Some students already have ideas of how they want to create their slideshows. Many think they'll use the Google Drive, Molly wants to teach people how to use SmileBox and I think I'll show people how to use Prezi!

Here is what we've talked about so far (this is also a Google Doc that has been shared with all students in Room 209)
