It was just Maurice Coleman and Jill Hurst-Wahl, and early on it became a love-fest about the VISTA Collaboratory,which is in the Carlson Library at the University of Rochester (NY). (Photos are below.) We also talked about what’s going on at Maurice’s workplace and had an extended conversation about Google Expeditions Kits. Along the way, Jill told the story about how she and Maurice met, which she also told on this week’s Library Pros Podcast. This was definitely a technology-focused conversation. Listen to the episode on TalkShoe.
On the call were Diane Huckabay, Maurice Coleman, Andrea Snyder and Paul Signorelli. Their conversation used Deborah Farmer Kris’s KQED Mind/Shift article “5 Strategies to Demystify the Learning Process for Struggling Students” as a jumping off point for a conversation about “Using Our Brains to Help Our Students.” Resources from the call are in a separate blog post.
