I made a sound recording of the presentation that I did at the Discovery Education YVR Ignite Session yesterday, and then I added the recording to my timed slides. This was an inspiring event, thank you to Dean Shareski for organizing it and providing me with the honour of presenting. I’ll have more to blog about this event later. Until then, here is my presentation.

  1. David,
    I thought that presentation really hit home with me. I have always said that learning should be more than just preparation for the next grade or college. As you said, learning is a great experience and teachers should be able to provide that experience for children. It was a great presentation and really provoked my thought process as I continue in my education degree.
