I was recently approached by the school and asked if I would be interested in doing career day.
My kids overheard the conversation and sure enough they got all excited and encouraged me to do it.
Now I have to give a 1hr speech in front of kids in grade 5,6 and 7 and not sure what I should do.
The teacher told me I could use the computer room if I wanted to and do groups of students if easier.
OR, I can do a presentation for all the students in the gym and have access to the Smart Boards.
Smart boards, unlike when I was in school, is a newer sophisticated chalk board / computer of sorts.
Anyways, I dabble in a bit of everything, from systems administrations to web development. Most of which kids that age, may find somewhat boring and I’m looking for some suggestions and thoughts to make it more interesting and not a yawning experience. Maybe I should do a screen presentation but then I thought those were always kind of boring, so maybe I could do something a little more interactive and encourage-able.
I’m just looking for some ideas to help my own brainstorming.
If you’ve some experience or suggestions by all means share
Thanks in advance!
