Technology has completely changed the way we live, work, and learn. Technology has brought us the internet, smartphones, tablets, and many more tools that have changed our lives forever. Of course, these same technologies have also brought us memes like Socially Awkward Penguin, Success Kid, and yes, Grumpy Cat.

In this session, these two worlds collide as six industry experts use today’s memes to explore the hottest trends in our field. The rules of each presentation are simple: Each speaker’s presentation has 20 slides that automatically advance every 20 seconds. That provides each speaker with six minutes and 40 seconds to paint their vision for the future of learning. And there’s one last rule—slides can only use common internet memes for visuals. Join us for what is sure to be a fun and informative session.

Here are the topics our speakers will be exploring:


  • Julie Dirksen: Neuroscience, The Good, Bad, and Ugly
  • Jane Bozarth: Evidence Vs. Myth
  • Tracy Parish: Robots are Taking Over the World
  • Sam Rogers: Big Data & Little Problems
  • JD Dillon: The Only Learning Platform Your Will Ever Need!!
  • David Kelly: Do You Suffer From SOS (Shiny Object Syndrome)?


In this session, you will learn:

  • The truth behind some of the biggest trends in learning
  • How to separate the fab from the fad
  • How Ignite session formats can create unique learning opportunities
  • Way more about internet memes than you ever thought possible
