My youngest son (17yo) objects heatedly when I talk at the table about friends I’ve connected with. He always asks “real” or “virtual,” as he does not agree that the people I network with using 2.0 tools can be anything more than people somewhere else that you really don’t know. Well I beg to differ, […]

I’m still reeling with the knowledge that my wonderful advisor from the University of South Carolina, Dr. Donna Shannon, is reading my blog. This just blows me away! Look at the bottom of this email she sent me: W00T! Best of all she wants me to “virtually” join her SLIS 761 class to talk about […]

What a difference a week makes! Saturday the Edublogger awards were announced, and I was so sure I did not win, I did not even go into Second Life to hear who did, nor did I tap into the many portals made available live (like Edtech Talk, Skype, and others…) You see, as I told […]

Recently Carolyn Foote, a friend who is honestly a friend in the virtual sense, as I only know her from Twitter, blogging, webcasts, and Ustream forums, has challenged my thinking about the library.

I caught this in my RSS reader today. Recently with my kids we discussed how RSS feeds were initially used only by the news wires–enabling newspapers and other news media to jump on and use stories for papers, magazines, and television productions. I am going to use this during the week with some of my […]

Problem Background: I am new in my district this year, even though I’m a 22 year veteran.  This week I had a couple of sixth grade science teachers ask about using the library computers (20 in all) for a webquest they were completing, because there were some unavailable times in the computer lab to them.  […]

Thanks for your help in allowing me to stay connected despite the blocking software at school. I now can follow my gmail and twitter from school. There is a method to the madness and so far I haven’t made anyone question me. Of course I only have time to twitter at lunch and the email […]

I tried another “broadcast yourself” social network after the twitterverse were all inviting the network to come and check it out.  It does allow the “director” to pass off to other speakers or even others with webcams, so it has more potential. But they stream one “show” on their home page it seems all the […]
