Video: Education as a Human Endeavor

At the #learning2 Africa conference I spoke about what makes a good educator and what tech evangelists need to do to be successful at their schools.

Two tips for public speaking, from a first-time speaker:

  • In a 3-5 minute talk, you really have time to effectively present and support only a single idea. I tried to talk about two, but ran slightly over time.
  • You probably need to practice your speech to be fluent, unless you’re a natural talker. I’m not, and rehearsed about 20 times from conception to delivery.
