….wonder it is destined for anywhere other than the bin?
Well that was exactly what went through my mind when I was preparing my ‘take away’ calendars for my Learning Technologies 2011 session.
The desktop calendars had been designed to provide the attendees with a very ‘loose’ roadmap to assist them in implementing Learning Technologies into their role/workplace and were placed on the tables as a ‘freebie’ take away.
I have often wondered how many people took the calendars out of politeness and were ultimately destined for the bin, so you will appreciate how chuffed I was to receive this email from Lisa Johnson.
You will be pleased to hear that your desk calendar is being put to good use. Before I re-ordered it from Mar to Apr I realized I hadn’t looked at blogs so I made the effort to set up a blog page in WordPress! I just need to get the creative cap on and consider how I am going to use it. Now that we are in April and on podcasting, I’ve had our Director record a webex presentation. He was delivering an all staff meeting in London and for those staff that couldn’t make it we recorded it and sent it out at the same time. It’s the first time we have used the technology for communications and it’s been well received with staff feeling connected and seeing the Director being more accessible.
I’d like to thank Lisa for providing this feedback and hope that she’s continues to let us all know how she is getting on with using the resource.
Which brings me to you Dear Reader…
Did you attend the session? If so, have you had any success in implementing any of the suggestions?
If you didn’t attend, have you got any tips or suggestions for ensuring that your take-away resources make it beyond the bin?
