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 […]

Reading 2.0

Lol cruising through my reader and then tweets this morning I ran across this–actually in both places. What a pleasant surprise to see my school represented!

Let’s do the Wiki WYSIWYG

So I was asked to put together a VoiceThread on wikis.  I’m not sure I’m real satisfied with the end product, and I can tell it’s been a while since I messed around with Voice Thread.  Also, I don’t like VT’s (like this) that really don’t seem to encourage written or voice comments, which is […]

As the time frame for getting funding to attend Educon 2.1 gets smaller and smaller, it appears I will only be able to attend virtually.  I went last year, and co-presented too.  This was the first conference I have attended in many years where I was more involved in conversations than looking at others presentations, […]

Here is a picture from the SCASL Webinar featuring a discussion about the popular book Twilight if you missed it.  Yes the time featured there is accurate too. Our webinar from 4-5PM today was attended by roughly 22 people, and was what I think a FIRST for SCASL.  It was a fantastic cross section of […]

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 […]
