Ignite Student Presentations with Inspired, Passionate Learning

Do your students, like many others, do the same old culminating projects at the end of a unit, semester, or year? They research an area of interest, develop questions, talk to experts, and share their learning - on a tri-fold board, with paragraph summaries of their answers and a picture or two pasted to the board. It's been this way for generations, but is that really inspired, passionate learning? Consider a CapCon, or Capstone Learning Conference, instead. There are no tri-folds. Instead, students do Ignite talks summarizing their experiences. They do TED talks and demonstrate their learning in individual and creative ways. Join Chris Casal as he explores the notion of student-driven learning and presenting in modern, engaging ways. You will discover how one school flipped the staid tri-fold model and turned it on its head 5 years ago and never turned back. In addition to sharing examples of what the students do, Chris will outline the year-long process used to prepare students to truly culminate their school experiences in a meaningful, awe-inspiring way.
