Are You Using media:scape in a Classroom Setting?

Question for you readers: anybody using media:scape stations in a library classroom setting? I’m part of a group trying to figure out best practices for teaching in a room with 4 media:scape setups ranged in a circle around the room. We plan to teach a host of different library classes in the space, and would love to hear from others what your experiences have been with such setups, and what worked (and didn’t work) for you.

Please e-mail me at: claguard@fas.harvard.edu if you have any help to share. I’ll post it to the blog if you signify that it’s okay (won’t if you don’t).

Many thanks, and more as it happens,
