TMI – Too Much Information

Today another teacher and I provided in-service training to fellow teachers.  Whew, am I tired.  At first, I thought we were going to have about a 4 hour session.  Then it was cut down to 2 hours.  So we were going to split it to have about an hour’s worth of information each.  Well, this morning we realized that with the time constraints we would actually have about 30-35 minutes each.  This was definitely not enough time!  I started talking and couldn’t quit because I had planned too much.  I had really wanted the teachers to go out onto the web and explore all the different software that I had suggested.  But that was not to be.  I felt like I hadn’t done an adequate job because I didn’t have enough time for them to play.  However, maybe there will be more opportunities in which to dig deeper into specific content that can be utilized.  At least I will have a few days to recover from all this excitement.
