Lunch Time Activity

Testing Circle Time

Friday, September 29, 1:15-2:15pm

Many schools today have a special time with their students where everyone sits in a circle and shares their experiences. They call this “Circle Time”. And during this Circle Time, each student speaks of anything that they wish to share with their classmates. Students can learn more about their friends and the school community.

This experience proves educational in so many ways. Students get the opportunity to hear about the everyday life of their classmates. They learn new things that other students may be experiencing. And most of all, they build a closer bond with their friends by learning how they think, what they are going through day-by-day, and what inspires them every day.

On Friday, September 29 during our lunch time at STPCon, we want to introduce “Testing Circle Time”. During this one hour, we want to hear from attendees and give everyone an opportunity to share your story with us.

Who should sign up for this opportunity?

  • Those that have a topic that you are passionate about and want to share with others
  • Those that have never presented before but are interested in speaking at STPCon
  • Technical people that would like to share ideas on new technology or strategies
  • Experienced speakers that would like to pitch a new upcoming presentation

How will this work?

  • Come prepared to sign up at STPCon for your talk
  • Determine the title of your presentation
  • Each presenter will have up to 5 minutes to share their idea, thoughts, presentation
  • Each presentation will be timed and promptly stopped at 5 minutes
  • Presentation materials (e.g. slides, pictures, handouts, etc) are NOT required – in fact, spending your 5 minutes speaking on your topic without any presentation is preferred
  • We will have time slots for up to 8 speakers during this hour
  • To allow all speakers to get their 5 minutes, questions will not be taken at that time

Do you have a topic you’re passionate about?

Do you have a new idea you’d like to pitch to the community for a new conference talk?

Do you have a strategy or approach you are using that you feel would help the community?

We want to hear from you. Open times will be on a first come, first served basis. Sign up at the registration desk to participate!
