From Janice P. We are having a discussion about reinventing our technology training center (2 PC computers, wired whiteboard, classroom control software, scanner, photo printer, limited “gadget garage on board currently). I’m curious about the group members’ thoughts about the following : 1.What have you seen elsewhere (not necessarily a library) that could be implemented in the Tech training Center? 2. If you were a library customer, what program/class would you like to see in our Tech Center? 3. As a staff member, what have you always wished that you could do in the Tech Center?

We will be talking about Keynote Tweet: What would you like to know about your presentation during your presentation?  Linkage.

Also, we may have the proper telling of the Wildebeest story on the show.
