Judy Drummond and I did a very low tech presentation on American Memory at
the CSLA (California School Librarians Association) Conference last weekend.
We used transparencies, blowups of photo's and a tape recorder for some of the
sound files. We thought that it went pretty well. The biggest comment on the
evaluation sheets was that they would have liked to see how it went on a real
computer. We did not have access to one though.
I am hoping that we can do one for our district social studies teachers in a
computer lab. They are just starting to plan the staff development days and
we have asked to be on the list of workshops.
