Enlighten us but make it quick. That’s the moto of Ignite Speeches. http://igniteshow.com/ I have been seriously impressed with this format of giving a speech. 20 slides, 15 seconds each, 5 minutes long. My students were given this option for their end of the year research project. Many have taken the challenge.
How to Give an Ignite Speech
Sample Ignite Speech
I created an Ignite template with the 20 slides that automatically change every 15 seconds. The students just have to know their material well enough and time it correctly to go with the pictures that are showing.
The students are forced to become experts. I do allow them to have a note card or two but they are not allowed to simply read to me.
After this first attempt I will write on ways to improve it and how to assess it.
