So, I opened my big host mouth at the end of last show and said:

“On the next show, we will talk about Mobile Technology and Training.”

Great.   Nice statement, but how do I make our first ( and I hope not last) “specific theme” show worth listening to?

By begging for links and specific ideas of things to talk about around “Mobile Technology and Training.”

Even though I have a few ideas, I want this to be about your information needs.

One Idea: Podcast Trumps Lecture: Based on an article in ESchool News, podcasts of lectures were more effective than attending the lecture in this study.   To make this really happen your input is needed.

So, feel free to comment here or on our FriendFeed Room about what YOU want to talk about around Moble Technology and Training.

Seriously.  Give your input. Make the show.   Join the call.

We tape at 2 pm Eastern March 27th .

What we probably will talk about:

How to keep your Names and Passwords Straight? While teaching many social networking applications many users think the tool itself is great but getting to use that tool, via signups, remembering usernames and passwords, is a big problem. How do you remember your passwords/usernames? Do you use a few? Keep it consistent? A series of names and passwords? what is your secret if you have one? -

What information you wish you had as a presenter BEFORE you presented? Have you heard this before?  “Sorry, we thought you were bringing a computer and/or projector today.” OR “Didn’t you know you were going to do a two hour class not the 15 minutes panel talk you prepared?” Let’s talk about the things you like to know before you go.

Podcast Trumps Lecture: Based on an article in ESchool News, podcasts of lectures were more effective than attending the lecture in this study.  Training Impact?
