@ VOL 12 ON MAY 28, 2012

In a culture where robots are everywhere -- whether as a toy, in an industrial setting, or as a movie villain -- it's good to have someone like DJ Sures, CEO, roboticist, and the visionary behind EZ-Robot. Watch as he shares his passion for robots, particularly the ones that are easy to control. (in English) More to see: http://www.ez-robot.com/default.aspx



Using the Format at Conferences

The PechaKucha format goes beyond regular PechaKucha Nights, and we are often contacted about having one-off PechaKucha sessions as part of conferences or festivals, which we call "Powered by PechaKucha" events. Here's one planned for the Werklund School of Education's IDEAS: Rising to the Challenge conference in Calgary.

This spring, a conference focusing on education innovation will be held on campus, and PechaKucha will figure prominently in the program. The conference, called IDEAS: Rising to the Challenge, will focus on creating opportunities for participants to inform each other’s work, to build on ideas and to challenge the ideas of learning and teaching.
According to Brenda Gladstone, co-chair of the conference and Chief Operating Officer of the Galileo Educational Network, the two-day event is for innovators, designers, educators, academics, researchers and students (hence the acronym IDEAS).
“Participants will build new knowledge networks,” says Gladstone. “These networks will focus on scholarship for teaching, in which research informs teaching and leading practices, and leading edge practices from the field inform research.”
