12/5 is Smackdown/Open Mic/Karaoke night. Prepare!
Gwyneth and I are listed as host and presenter, but the goal here is for YOU, friends, to do the heavy lifting.
Look back at 2011. What is the most exciting thing you learned? What was the most powerful teaching strategy you tried? Which instructional tools best inspired learners? Did you have an epiphany about how to do something easier, better, cooler in your library or classroom? (Classroom teacher friends are welcome!)
From the tiniest to the most profound new thing, this is your time to share with you colleagues. Think of it as a professional obligation. And, if this works, we’ll make it an annual event!
All you have to do to get ready is to
1. think hard about what you want to share
2. share it as a slide or slides on this crowd-souced presentation/book.
3. remember that we are prepared to offer extra credit for very pretty slides!
4. be prepared to grab the Elluminate mic on Monday, December 5th at 8PM Eastern!
(Note: This was at the very bottom of a long post last week. At the point I am writing this, no slides appear. Clearly, I needed to make it pop a little more. I can’t wait to watch our little book grow!)
