Be the Change!!

I’ve always considered myself a catalyst for change.  You can ask any of my friends and they will tell you how animated I get when one begins to talk nerdy to me–just ask the teacher today who casually mentioned she had used moodle in a course this summer and discovered the beauty of Delicious and […]

Kicking ourselves to the curb!

I have many friends and family anxiously awaiting this weekend to go shopping.  Why?  It’s the annual SC (and NC too) tax free holiday weekend.  Anybody and everybody can purchase certain items over the three-day weekend that begins this Friday at 12:01AM and lasts until 11:59PM Sunday.  The bonus and reason for celebration is that […]

The last few days I have been sitting through sessions at the SCETV Technology 3-day Workshops.  I submitted a proposal to present, mainly to have an authentic opportunity to “practice” a planned presentation for early October.  (Selfish I know.)  I also co-presented with Fran Bullington and Heather Loy doing the session we did at the […]

In recent discussions with friends, we have bemoaned the misunderstanding of what librarians do in a school. Defending one’s job is a tiring and lonesome battle, and in the midst of budget woes all around, downright fearful. In my network of friends, the discussion has been at times heated but plentiful. So what can we […]

YouTube clip too long? Chop It!!

I’m a big fan of using online videos in my presentations, but I’ve found that I talk way too much (mostly “um’s”) and have a tendency to run short on time.  But when I’ve selected a video to include, I usually allow the whole thing to play, or at least play through a certain point […]

Did you miss ISTE 2010?

Some of you, like me, may have opted for other conferences. Others, often like me, could not afford the cost to travel, lodge, and attend ISTE 2010. Don’t lament your losses (which I’m sure were significant, mine included.)  ISTE organizers have a vision that includes whetting the appetite to attend the next annual conference in […]

Tony Vincent just shared this in my Twitter feed and I had to laugh: 12 Page eBook – A New Way To Lecture: Using Web 2.0 to Create Interactive Lectures http://tonyv.me/newlec.  Recently I had a conversations with Chris Craft about what I really dislike in presentations–>sit and get.  He challenged me to think of ways […]

Thanks to Dr. Scott Mcleod of Dangerously Irrelevant for the initial sharing of this video in early June, a somewhat satirical look at a serious topic–educational funding cuts! I’d seen this a while back, but it is running in my circles again, so I thought I’d share it here, especially after a news article showed […]

My Annual Library Report

There seems to be a demand to post/share our end of the year library reports (dictated by advocacy efforts to justify and save our jobs.) Somewhat incomplete since my colibrarian does not return until August, I have created one for our library.  It will be tweaked in August upon her return. 2010 Annual Library Report […]

Just this morning I blogged about the SCETV’s Summer Technology Workshops which is a FREE for the taking–all teachers have to do is register.  So I was saddened today to receive an email plea (here’s the online link) that outlines the 52% cuts that Governor Sanford is supporting for ETV.  Please contact your legislators today.
