An actor, a script-writer and a videographer walk into a library… and produce the best instructional videos ever.
Tactics: Animated whiteboards, comedy, puppets
Topic: Library Instruction
Brief: Teaching college kids about the resources available to them at the library seems like a daunting task. Getting them excited about it? fughettaboutit. That is, unless you enlist the help of 3 funny guys a puppet, a whiteboard and a camera. Then you get not only comedy gold, but you might also learn something too.
Speaking of comedy’s power to make sense, keep an eye on Baratunde’s Cultivated Wit. He’s on to something.
