At the last AERO conference in Portland, Oregon August 2016, we pioneered a day of the first AERO mini-talks. We had seven short presentations similar to TED talks. In this issue we are releasing the first one with the others to follow shortly.
The one we are releasing today features Shilpa Jain.
A previous AERO keynoter, Shilpa Jain has been organizing Education JAMs all over the world for many years. She is Executive Director of YES! The JAM incubates exploratory and innovative programs. Each JAM has about thirty participants. AERO collaborated with YES to bring her group to the AERO conference. In this mini-talk she demonstrated some of the high energy, insightful activities that they were doing in her group. After watching this mini-talk you could do something similar with your group. Watch carefully when you get to the activities themselves. It may look at first like people milling round, but you will see the process emerging over a few minutes time. Please send us feedback on this talk and send it out far and wide to your networks!
You can see the next mini-talks at the AERO conference August 2-6 in New York. The whole five day conference is still at the Earlybird rate of $225. Or you could catch the similar TED talks for only $8500 in Vancouver, except that this year is sold out!
