A-HA!

Before I was in Admissions, I was a Children’s Pastor. Now even if you aren’t religious, stay with me here. Once in a while, I would prepare a lesson to teach the children on let’s say, Noah’s Ark. Several times I would find myself listening to the sermon I had missed while teaching to find that the Pastor or someone during an offering meditation would refer to Noah and his many animals. I called these A-HA! moments. Because not only did my student learn about Noah, but maybe he told his mom about it on the way home and she says, “Hey, that sounds like something we heard about in the sermon.”

Enter: My TWOA-HA moments. First, I was thinking about how we can use Twitter here at FC when our Webmaster came over for our staff meeting. Lo and behold, she’s working with one of our IT guys on an FC Twitter! Then, there was a post about Twitter in my Feed Reader. Makes me feel like we’re working on something exciting!

My second A-HA! moment is going to require your help. For our state organization conference (IACAC), I am planning a session on Technology in Higher Education. Then, there was this GREAT discussion this weekend about this topic over at Matt Herzberger.com. I read this after I had volunteered to plan this session. My ideas are to cover Student Blogging, implications of FERPA when communicating via Chat, IM, etc., and… What else? What do my 5 loyal readers think? Do you know someone who would love to speak at an Indiana Conference? Would you?

Oh, and here’s a quick peek of what happens when our only male Admissions Counselor is home sick the day before April Fool’s.

Yep, we shrink wrapped his desk.
