A turning point in interation

Posted by gazjjohnson on 24 August, 2009

Just come back from a session by Keith on using the voting handsets and software from TurningPoint in teaching sessions.  I must confess to being quite impressed by the ease at which it was possible to set up slides and get responses from the audience, just using the PowerPoint plug in. 

One or two features like the onscreen timer do seem to be a little tempermental, but straight away I can think of some sessions that I’d like to seriously enliven using this coming year.  While we’ve only 50 handsets for now, I can see that there will likely be a strong demand from my collegues for more of the handsets to cope with the larger numbers in some sessions.

So that was a promising session, and while I won’t be teaching as much with the new job, I can still see a use for them in my sessions on 3rd party copyright and etheses.  Thanks to Keith for running the session!

Vote for us!

Posted by gazjjohnson on 8 December, 2008

I just remembered that we (the blog that is) has been nominated for the best Librarian/Library EduBlog 2008.  And voting is now open.

So go vote for us now!

I don’t think we’re in with that much of a chance really, but it is nice to be nominated all the same, and a very positive reflection on the efforts we’ve all made towards making this a place to share experiences.  Here’s to a successful 2009.

Happy Christmas all.
