I'm willing to put money down that he's heard it before, but definitely not yet from me.
Adam and I presented together at ISTE with other friends in Hollywood Squares: A Brain-Bending Game Show in which we presented relevant research findings in the ed tech world through the lense of nine ridiculous celebrities in the tic-tac-to-style Hollywood Squares game show.
It was pretty crazy. I was Bill Nye. Read more about it here.
Back to Adam.
Adam presented at an IGNITE session. The IGNITE sessions were unique from any other session at ISTE. A group of presenters had exactly 5 minutes each and 20 slides (changing automatically every 15 seconds) in order to tell about a given ed tech concept, idea, practice, etc.
Adam nailed it.
Moreover, he did it with slides throwing back to 80's movies.
So now, without hesitation, I'd like to shamelessly "borrow" Adam's idea in order to recap my experience at ISTE.

|E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial (1985)|
Let me know if you go. I'd love to read about it.
