Yes, I am sitting in the airport waiting for my flight to take off...which doesn't seem to be any time soon.
With all this great distant learning technology and software, I find myself traveling to more conferences and face-to-face venues this year than I have in the past. It seems to me that there are a ton more conferences now then just a few years ago.
So with all these conferences, I seem destined to travel to talk about Gadgets, Games and Gizmos and to see what others are doing with learning technologies. But due to poor weather conditions, here I sit in the airport. A few moments ago, I took a digital picture of where my plane should be but I don't have the right cord to move the image from my digital camera to my computer (of course I have every other cord I could possibly need...just not that one.)
Today I am headed to North Carolina to the Advanced Learning Technologies Summit in Cary, NC. My talk is titled Robotics, Haptics, Gizmos, Gadgets and Medical Mannequins that Will Help Adult Learners. We are using an audience response system and I have lots of good samples and examples to show and great questions for the audience to provide responses.
I've done a number of presentation with audience response systems and it is always a lot of fun but, as I sit in the airport, I'd like to try something new and exciting with the technology so, if you have any really great ideas to push the audience response technology to the limit for presentations or even push it beyond the basic demographic questions, let me know. I'm looking for ideas.
