Making Media that Sticks
Monday, October 26, 2015 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm EDT
Presented by Tony Vincent, educator, consultant and author
Sponsored by Learning Bird
There are six principles of sticky ideas according to Dan and Chip Heath, authors of Made to Stick. Sticky ideas are ones that we can plainly understand, clearly remember, and easily retell. When teachers and students make educational media, whether visual, audio or video, we want them to be sticky. Let’s look at examples so we can make our own (and our students’) ideas stick.

The only thing Tony Vincent likes better than teaching is learning. He currently resides in Council Bluffs, Iowa, but he used to teach fifth grade in Nebraska. Since 1998 he’s been a pioneer in digital learning, having a classroom website before many classrooms even had internet access. In 2001 he had a 1:1 classroom full of Palm Pilots, and in 2005 he started one of the first podcasts from an elementary school. Today, Tony is focused on helping teachers empower students with technology.
Learning Bird is dedicated to helping students learn their own way. Their library of teacher-created digital lessons provides multiple perspectives on every topic so that if one lesson doesn’t help your kids understand, another one most definitely will. All of the lessons are aligned to local curricula and textbooks and will help your kids develop the self-directed learning skills they need to succeed.
