Tag Archive 'Professional Development'

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 […]

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 […]

With Apologies! SCASL Highlights

Our annual SCASL conference is over and done. I arrived home from Charleston, SC around 3PM today, deciding to nix the SC Book Awards Luncheon even though I scored a ticket (I did not have one due to tight budget when I originally registered.)  I figured I had connections with iPhones sitting in the luncheon, […]

Coming Monday, March 1st we have another school librarian focused (and led) webinar. A free opportunity–can’t say that for webinars released by ALA or ISTE, most of which come with a small fee, but a fee none the less. The last one featured special guest Mike Eisenberg (of Big6 fame and leadership in the field) […]

PD on your time, your own dime

For the second time today (Thursday, February 25) a member of our SCASL listserv has said they are not allowed to use their personal days to attend our state library conference (SCASL) planned for Charleston, SC March 24-26, 2010.  I am stunned at this.  I really wonder if a school or district can legally deny […]

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 […]

This week will prove quite challenging for me.  Wednesday through Friday we have our annual South Carolina Association of School Librarians Conference in Greenville, SC.  There is much buzz about this conference, but I’m most excited that Doug Johnson is coming for a keynote and a few sessions! I must give kudos to our president-elect, […]

What sells you on learning?

I’ve said it before and I’m saying it again, I HATE “sit and get” type learning (professional development or k12 classroom learning.)  I’ve been asked to help plan and perhaps present a session on the American Association of School Librarians Standards for the 21st Century Learner. What makes conference sessions good? So listed below are […]

Your Outlet or Mine?

Conferences. They MUST change the way they think about attendees’ needs.  Two conferences in a row, both locations offer free wifi for anyone who brings in a laptop, but there is no plan for how those said folks will “power up.”  Okay so I’m wise to this. As I pack my things for the conferences, […]
