Summer is here and I’m catching up with some of my newsletters and feeds about technology and teaching in general.
ASCD and Edutopia are talking about how to use Ignite sessions with kids to develop speaking skills and to use as a formative assessment on a subject. Edutopia even suggests that teachers could use Ignite sessions instead of lectures.
I will soon be attending ISTE in Denver and will try to attend their Ignite sessions as I have done the last two conferences. There presenters pitch ideas in the rapid fire method that is the Ignite session.
I wasn’t completely sure how this might work for kids until I read this article.
If you are an ASCD member, there is a video about kids prepping for Ignite sessions in the ASCD Express issue about developing speaking skills.
I love this idea and will use it with my students next year.
