Fried Friday: Fun With Memes


group3 vertI attended a session at the DevLearn2014 conference this last fall titled, “The Future of E-Learning in Memes.” Five presenters each did a PechaKucha style presentation using memes.  My brain was a little mentally overloaded at the time and this was just what I needed to end the day with a smile.

If you are not familiar with PechaKucha or Ignite (20 slides, 15 seconds each) presentations, they consist of 20 slides and the presenters spend only 20 seconds on each slide. For this conference session the slide images were all memes. You have probably seen several memes even if the term is not one you regularly use.

I think you will find the following Slideshare presentations from three of the presenters very entertaining:

The Future is Now by David Kelly

Meme-ing the Future of e-Learning by Cammy Bean

The Future of Learning: The Meme Vision by Jane Bozarth

Memes are simple to create using one of several online sites available.
Try or search online for meme generators.
Most include the popular memes to choose from and you can also upload your own images.
