Speed Dating As Professional Development (or classroom use)

The Impetus

Instruction technology coaches who care about their audiences are always looking for ways to spice up the mostly boring “sit and get” sessions that have become the norm.

A few weeks ago as my family and I were driving through the wondrous mountains of Colorado avoiding bears (for real…I saw a big brown one!)

Participants were asked questions in quick succession which made the chat super fast paced.  I thought the chat might become too chaotic, but, to my surprise, everyone was exchanging back stories, lol’ing each other, and having what seemed to be a good time (I even met another teacher from my motherland, Costa Rica…a rarity!).
