Lightning Talks for Teachers
Do you have an classroom lesson experience or ideas about CT to share with others quickly? You can participate in our Lightning Talks session. Basically, Lightning talks are (very) short talks, on any topic of interest to conference attendees. It can be something that you learned or ideas you think other people will be interested in. For example, you can talk about:
- That thing at work that everyone comes to you for help with.
- That thing you just learned that helped you out.
- That thing you always wish you understood, but haven't figured out yet.
Some reasons you should NOT be entertaining:
- Everyone already knows _xyz_ (No they don’t!)
- I’m not an expert at anything (You know more than you think!)
- I get nervous talking in front of people (Who isn’t?!)
- I have an idea but it’s no good (It’s a better idea than you might think!)
Duration and Format
- Maximum 5 minutes including questions.
- Maximum 3 slides (ppt or pdf). And no animations.
- Provide the title of your presentation on the first slide.
- Submit your slides via email to email@example.com with the subject “Lightning Talks Slides” by June 03, 23:59.
- You will be notified via email on your slot at the Lightning Talk session.
