So a few weeks ago, I got the chance to speak at IgnitePhilly. You get five minutes — you prepare twenty slides, and you get fifteen seconds a slide. It’s a really, really fun, fast-paced way to try to communicate an idea, and the evening was a ton of fun. It was amazing for me to get to talk about school reform and 21st Century schools in an audience of so many new media / social media / creative class folks in Philadelphia. If you get the chance to go to an IgnitePhilly event, do so. It’s a blast.
And it was really fun and tough to try to boil down what I think and believe about school reform to a five minute speech to non-educators. And it’s a good thing I talk fast. Enjoy.
