Igniting Collaborative Teaching

Ignite at HPS

I was lucky enough to attend my first Ignite evening host at my own school. Ignite is a worldwide event, where presenters share their passions Pecha Kucha (PK) style using 20 slides every 15 seconds. My first encounter with PK's was in my interview for my current job, I remember searching Google to find out what it meant.

The Emerging Leaders Ignite evening is a network of educators ready to challenge themselves and share their educational journey. Watch ignite talks from previous events here.

I was also 'lucky' to get to present for the first time along with my co-teacher from Studio 3. Collaborative teaching has been a new and exciting journey for us this term and we tried to capture our path so far.

PK look easy but are really challenging to capture you message clearly in a short time. Below is our slideshow. I look forward to trying to share my learning at Ignite again, and learn from other passionate educators.
