310 Ignite! Meme-ing the Future of Learning
4:15 PM - 5:15 PM Wednesday, October 29
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 current and future state of learning. 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.
In this session, you will learn:
- How learning has evolved in recent years
- How Ignite session formats can create unique learning opportunities
- What learning might look like years from now
- Way more about Internet memes than you ever thought possible
Novice to advanced designers, developers, and managers.
