Whether you missed our annual Education Lab storytelling event or want to hear the stories again, we've got you covered. Here's the footage from Wednesday's Ignite Education Lab.

Share story

More than 400 people filled Town Hall on Wednesday to watch a dynamic line-up of 11 teachers, parents and students tell stories about schools and learning.  The format was one of the most difficult out there: a five-minute limit using 20 slides programmed to advance every 15 seconds.

Judging from the standing ovation the group received at the end, the speakers did just fine.

You can read a recap of the evening here (which included a marriage proposal), but we also wanted to share videos of each of the 11 talks. You can learn more about the speakers here.
