For this 200th episode, Maurice Coleman, Kate Kosturski, Jill Hurst-Wahl, and Buffy Hamilton.   The four (including Buffy in chat) talked about the history of the program and what has changed in training since 2008.  For example, there have been technology changes since 2008 that have truly impact training/teaching/learning.

At the end of the episode, we talked about the ALA Midwinter conference.  A list of future ALA conference sites is here.

Inspiration or distraction?

Inspiration or Distraction?

This week’s topic was inspired by the blog post “Attention, distraction, deep work and burnout” by Jill.  On the call were Buffy Hamilton, Paul Signorelli, Jill Hurst-Wahl, Laura Fothergill and Maurice Coleman.

Buffy noted that some K-12 school districts do allow students to bring their own devices into the classroom.  However, she did notice some students this past year who became very engrossed in their mobile devices during lunch and never did anything else during lunchtime.

One other distraction is when people monopolize the conversation.  See “What teens resent: Classrooms controlled by students rather than teachers“.

Paul pointed to his post Social Media Feast and Fast: Disconnecting for a Day.

We talked about distraction in library training, K-12, and higher education.  Paul and Laura provided tools that people can use for digital note-taking which include Twitter, Prezi,  OneNote, and Sway…and a myriad of other things.

The show – which contains much more than what’s in these notes – can be listened to here.  The unedited chat – or as we say…the back channel – from the show is here.  Paul felt that others might want to read the chat, which was very focused this week.

The podcast took almost a month off and there were some exciting things happening around the T is for Training Ranch.

First things first:

We have a new sponsor:  The ALA Learning Round Table, LearnRT, of the American Library Association (ALA).

T is for Training is honored to have a group with a mission  “to provide a thought-provoking resource for those interested in learning and training in libraries” as a show sponsor, joining the LISHost and the Library Society of the World as supporters of the program.

Second:

We recorded four special episodes with some different voices in the training world.

Joining us during the intercession was Robin Hastings (webgoddess) of MRRLSarah Houghton-Jan (aka LibrarianInBlack), Michele Martin, creator of The Bamboo Project blog, and Cliff Landis, Technology Librarian (and futurist/philanthropist)  at Valdosta State (GA) University.

If you have not already done so, have a listen at these thought-provoking interviews.

Third a crowdsourced challenge:

I challenge each member of the T is for Training family to answer these 27 questions (created by your training peers) on your own Blog/Forum/twitterfeed/googledoc and put the link in a reply to the post on the T is for Training Website

(Seriously, do you know how hard it is to get more than a handful of busy trainers together to do anything? )

I will then collate the results as one T is for Training intercession Class Project post on the T is for Training Blog and social networking feeds.

And here are the results as of January 25th, 2010 (there are some pulled from the ALA Learning blog (our fab new sponsor’s blog):
