See I did pick something up at the institute - y'all.
Yesterday, Bonnie and I gave an hour and a half presentation of the
AmMemCol to a large group of LA's finest, the Humanitas teachers' summer
institute at USC. We used the new website simulator CD (pretending we were
connected to the internet), a mac laptop and a video projector to show
student and teacher use of the website (with one PwrPt demo as an intro).
We pulled together a multimedia Depression/Dustbowl/Migrant presentation
from the the website in real time before their very eyes and they all were
left gasping for breath. We felt like foxes in the chicken coop. It took us
a couple of days to organize and script the 'tricks' but in the 1-1/2 hour
we mixed video, film, speeches, speech texts, recorded music, recorded
music text, sheet music (printed out - found an 11x17 color printer in our
print shop) thank you very much Karen, printed out broadsides, etc., etc.,
etc! We're on again Monday for another 70 teachers. Once we get this
polished up we're taking it to Broadway! How 'bout giving us something
challenging to do Susan and Judy!
