614 Reignited! Meme-ing the Innovative World of Learning

3:00 PM - 4:00 PM Thursday, October 1

Emerging Tech

109/110

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.

For the second year in a row, these two worlds collide as six industry experts use today’s memes to explore the innovative world 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 share their vision for how learning is being innovated. 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 is being innovated
  • 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

Audience:
Novice to advanced designers, project managers, and managers.

Technology discussed in this session:
Various.
