I’m conducting my first public computer class soon on the subject of “Air Travel”. I created the lesson plan in 2006 as an assignment for an InfoPeople course called “Computer Classes to Go” taught by a librarian from the Hibbing Public Library. I’ve been link-checking and correcting the parts that refer to features of our catalog that don’t exist any more. Basically, I think it’s still a sound lesson.
Hibbing Public Library posts its computer class lesson plans on its web site under a Creative Commons license. This makes it easy to adapt a proven lesson in far less time than it would take to create one from scratch. (I see tonight that they have suspended their classes due to staff vacanies – too bad!)
If this works, I’ve got some great ideas for future class topics!
