Sure, a rubber chicken is always good for a laugh, but an “on-topic” laugh is always better than one that is not topic related. When it IS content-relevant, it can help make your learning point more memorable.
So the question is: can a rubber chicken help your group learn and remember new information? Perhaps . . .
Here are some funny ways to involve a rubber chicken in your training or teaching:
- Use it as a microphone when students are answering questions
- Use it as a pointer
- If nobody is answer your questions . . . ask the chicken
- Hold it up to indicate that the point you’re about to make, or just made is worthy of special attention
