In February, educators from across South Carolina gathered for a series of “Ignite Your Passion for Discovery” events in Columbia, Greenville, and Beaufort. Each evening was filled with a series of short, energizing presentations shared by members of your Discovery Education Community about a topic that makes them curious. The Ignite format requires presenters to generate 20 slides that will auto advance every 15 seconds, which leads to an engaging 5 minute talk. This challenging opportunity inspired our educators to talk about everything from how to avoid a zombie education apocalypse to lessons learned from a one year old to why kindness matters.
If you see a Discovery Education Ignite event in your area, don’t miss out. You can follow along with the learning on Twitter by following #DEIgnite. In fact, there are some events coming up in the next few weeks in Canada and Texas!
