Today my colibrarian and I lead a staff development each block for any interested teachers. We have been doing this since October, and we call the opportunities “One Tool at a Time.” Yes, I swiped borrowed the name from the ISTE SIGMS webinar series called “One Tool at a Time.”  When I send out emails […]

I am excited to blog today about the new South Carolina Association of School Librarians website. I am on the Information Technology Committee, and some of our focus has been on getting our website renovated.  We hired a SCASL Webmaster, Mike Heath, and I kid you not when I say this is significantly more (and […]

Recently there has been a  RASH of educators nay-saying the power of connected learning through 2.0 tools.  (And actually suddenly it seems uncool to say 2.0 anything or even 21st Century anything else.)  So I ran across this today over at Lee Kolbert’s blog (A GeekyMomma’s Blog) and thought wow, the slideshare inserted in the […]

I hope to put a few fliers out at school.  The preconference keynote is scheduled for October 13, and then over the next two weeks there will be 40 downloadable sessions, either in video or podcast […]

When I was on the Edublogs platform, and because I did not pay for the service but instead used the free platform (which I still say is GREAT), I needed to use FeedBurner to track blog statistics. I did not realize however that by steering my readers toward the feedburner subscription, I was practically eliminating […]
