    Yes, we are definitely excited about the webinar series! I’ll be posting an image with the schedule on here soon. K-12 educators, take note–you can earn CEUs by taking the webinars (shout out to the educators I know are on here, @mhendrickson, @maggie-paxson, @denise-porcello, @laura-amatulli, @taorminalepore, @afarke, @gsantos, @comalley!) and to those who can pass this along to the wonderful k-12 people in their lives (looking at you, @jbokor, @cindy-kern, @kcrippen, @cgrant, @bmacfadden).
    Got questions for @jayson-kowinsky? You can post them here before, during, or after the webinar!

    I’m not sure where our questions for Jayson will go so I will start here…

    1. How to you think the internet and social media have effected currentfossil collecting and the fossil world (positive and negative aspect)?

    Great start on the questions for Jayson, @joyce-drakeford! Thanks for posting them. Are you going to be able to join the webinar “in person” on the 31st?

    I have a few questions for @jayson-kowinsky for his August 31st webinar as well!
    1. What are the most useful tools you take when you are out collecting fossils?
    2. What are the most “common” types of collecting sites in the United States?
    Anyone want to chime in with their questions?

    Thanks to Jayson for starting the webinar series on such a positive note! At its peak, we had 68 participants on-line at the same time. Way to go Jayson!!

    I’m looking forward to presenting my webinar on Thursday, 29 Sept on “Field Notes 101”

    I plan to talk about “Why” and “How” we take field notes when we collect fossils. The talk will be geared for the novice wanting to maximize the scientific value of their collections. We will discuss the traditional method of the field notebook as well as the application of simple, modern technology (iPhones).

    I always like to optimize talks for my intended audience. Do you have any suggestions, or questions that you would like answered? If so, please enter them here and I will do my best to incorporate these into my talk.

    Thanks, Bruce

    I am finally back in town and have viewed the link to Jayson’s webinar . ¬†What a great job and successful opener! ¬†Congrats to the myFOSSIL team. ¬†I want to include this in the president’s column in the Sept. Newsletter. ¬†I may have missed it on the website, but does anyone have the list and dates of future topics that I could include?

    Also to @bmacfadden:  I would certainly love to help with the Field Notes 101, but need guidance as to what you would want me to do, and can I upload pictures from my field book from Nebraska (stratigraphy) and Cincinnati (Carl Brett)?

    @cgrant Here’s a few iterations of the flyer for @bmacfadden‘s upcoming webinar on Field Notes. The first one (Field Notes 101 Flyer) is better for distributing to individuals, the second one (Field Notes 101_v2) is better for social media, like Facebook. It fits with Facebook’s standards for amount of text to image ratio, so it can be “boosted” on Facebook pages to reach more people.
    Others, like @jkallmeyer, @kyle-hartshorn, @spassmore, @joyce-drakeford, @cferrara, and @lcone might want these images as well to distribute to their clubs in newsletters and on social media.

    Thanks so much @llundgren
    I posted on the GABI RET page and forwarded on my FB as well, tagging teacher friends. There’s a lot of interest.
