SpeedGeeking at Sunday noon GMT
- Hi folks,
At our recent WiAOC event Kim Cofino and Jeff Utecht mentioned the technique
of 'speedgeeking' which is ... hmmm ... it's making a presentation on
educational technology in a given amount of time. The idea is to share
accomplishments in ed tech in a concise fashion. There are obvious
parallels with Pecha Kucha, including being brief and concise, and achieving
efficiency in communication through careful advance planning.
Although I haven't spoken to him for the past week, Nick Noakes and I agreed
to turn up this sunday noon GMT or so and get the ball rolling. I suppose
that this sunday that would mean discussing what speedgeeking is and lining
up some speedgeekers for next Sunday.
We should meet at http://tappedin.org as usual where I and others would be
hanging out and directing traffic. Real speedgeek sessions would likely
take place in Elluminate, most likely http://tinyurl.com/y3eh
Nick, if you're paying attention here, reply to this message (if no reply
soon I'll contact him on a backchannel).
Meanwhile those who participate in our sunday noon gatherings, see you there
