Yesterday at the start of day 2 of our iPad Media Camp I demonstrated an “Ignite” style presentation for participants. Ignite presentations are similar to the Pecha Kucha model, except only 15 slides are used and each is shown for just 15 seconds. (Pecha Kucha’s have 20 slides for 20 seconds each.) I recorded the audio of my presentation on my iPhone using the free iTalk Recorder app, and then uploaded both the slides (which I created with Haiku Deck for iPad, also free) and the audio to SlideShare. This is a 3 minute, 52 second presentation. I’d love any feedback you have on this, I’m scheduled to share it in San Antonio on June 23rd at the ISTE Conference Welcome and Opening Ignite Session.

I love how Haiku Deck includes attribution images for Creative Commons images on each slide at the bottom! See my previous post, “Create a Narrated Slideshow on an iPad with Haiku Deck and Explain Everything” for additional ideas about narrating presentations with Haiku Deck, along with the “Narrated Slideshow / Screencast” page of Mapping Media to the Common Core.

One Response to Feedback Wanted: ISTE13 Ignite – Open Doors for Students

    Love the use of visuals! We were considering doing blogs in type of format for our Teacher Blogs — they provide a completely different level of engagement. I am sure the ISTE crowd will prefer this over the typical style of presentation since it keeps you engaged and sets a faster pace.
