Another dot in the blogosphere?


Posted on: March 2, 2020

I forgot to do something last year, told myself not to forget this year, and promptly forgot again this year.

No, the something is not my tax returns because I am a dutiful citizen. I had wanted to do a time-lapse video recording of how I set up a class for a gallery walk for mobile learning AND station-based video game learning.

I had created one with the help of a videographer several years ago for a change management class I used to facilitate. It was instructive because I could use it to provide insights into the processes behind a product like a class or workshop.

The newer time-lapse was supposed to be about how I divide a classroom into two zones.

The first is a gallery walk of QR codes for learners to consume content about performance support or interstitial learning. Each content group then peer teaches the other its focus topic.

The second is a primer on game-based learning over four or five stations. My learners visit the stations before rising above the experiences and reflecting on takeaways.

This is a more complex setup than the one in my old video and a lot more tiring to prepare. Last year I was still figuring things out and took almost 30 minutes to move the classroom furniture around. This year I got it down to about 20 minutes.

As I had so much on my mind about what to do and what had to come next, I forgot to set up the recording. But now that I have written this down as a reflection and admonishment, I am more likely to remember to make the recording the third time around.
