I, Tiffany Whitehead (aka librarian tiff aka Mighty Little Librarian), survived my first big presentation! After two weeks of completely immersing myself in preparing for this, I presented my “Free Tech Tools You Can Use” session at LACUE. The room was PACKED. Standing room only, with people even sitting on the floor. I’m not exaggerating, look:
Even though I wasn’t able to use my laptop, I got set up and was able to access everything through my wiki. I dressed like my Go! Animate avatar, which was way fun. I shared all of my favorite things and as many examples of them in use as I possibly could. I really hope everyone left with something that they’d like to try!
I fit a lot in to my 50 minute session. Hopefully I didn’t completely overwhelm too many people. I also tried my best to hold everyone’s interest. I’m loud, energetic, and a spaz so I think that helps. I also did a text-in Poll Everywhere survey to try and break it up. And I tried not to take it personally that one lady in the front row kept dozing off…
I really enjoyed myself and can’t wait to do more presentations in the future! I got a great response from the audience afterwards, so I definitely felt encouraged!
