This falls under one of those things I would mind trying to implement, but I don't have the time or resources to set it up. The idea comes from "Lightning Learning," over at Wanderings of a Librarian. (Go read that first).
I do wonder what audience we would get here for some drop-in 15 minute sessions. I like the second set of sessions, an acknowledgment that indeed students will use Google, so we might as well help them to make the best of it. Joy provides not only topics, materials to look over, which I could use for inspiration here, but she also looks at the marketing of sessions and even some assessment.
So, what stops me from doing this?
- Time. As usual, this is an issue. The time to create materials and to do the presentations. The audience may have 15 minutes; I usually don't.
- Space. Our classrooms are not interactive, and to be honest, they are a little on the dingy side, even though they are new expanded spaces (hey, a new carpet and some paint only go so far in a box with no proper equipment).
Anyhow, I like the idea, so if I ever get the resources, I will certainly try to put it in place.
