photo © 2008 Scott McLeod | more info (via: Wylio)As I reflect over the past year, I remember the knee-jerk reactions that I among many have had over the lack of respect for my profession as a school librarian.  The average non-library users lauds that the internet serves all their information needs and now ebooks […]

Shared in my network today! How timely considering yesterday’s post! Dave is my hero! His commentary regarding this clip copied from his blog – The folks at the Next conference put up a nice short(ish) excerpt of my talk on the Librarian Militant, Librarians Triumphant talk. It’s the last 12 minute conclusion:

Okay I saw it first here on Dangersously Irrelevant: “Video – What does it mean to be literate in the 21st century? Here’s a new video from Heidi Clark and Anita Bramhoff, two Canadian teachers who made the film as part of some work at the University of British Columbia. Happy viewing!” Then I saw […]

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 read this today in Mary Woodard’s Blog The Top Shelf–essentially Dallas Public Library has created a branch in a local mall. Fantastic idea!!  All I could think is how this could be modified for the school library. I know my circ stats are not what I want them to be, despite investing a large […]

Just 2 questions…

I read this in my reader tonight (yeah, I’m a wee bit behind…) and was struck by the conversation on how to interview people for a school going 1:1 (one computer per student) with technology. Since reading in Doug’s post tonight about predictions for 2020 (just 12 years away) it is not unreasonable to assume […]

Your Vote Counts

Today evidently Edublogs released the nominations for their annual Eddies. I always love to see who made the cut.  This is a good time to go into my reader and remove blogs that I skip or skim daily, and replace with new voices I was not familair with. I created a folder for them to […]
