Just another weblog

Week 9, #23 reflections

Though I would like to wax poetic here, I’m going to leave that for a future edit (which can easily be traced) and just cut to the chase for my summary:

favorite discoveries or exercises–, and an “excuse” to watch videos on YouTube and TeacherTube and Joyce Valenza’s stuff

assisted or affected your lifelong learning goals–ha! of having an end goal in mind? What I stated was to have a wiki for the Library Handbook. Well, at least I identified which wiki host I will probably use….. Also, I had early identified as something I wanted to know more about, and that is true and will be very handy.

unexpected outcomes–I had seen LibraryThing before but I LOVE the ability (once I figure out widgets) to promo a few books. I really really really intend on imbedding that into the school site libraries’ webpages that I’m imminently designing, having finally broken through the logjam administratively to update the district’s website to include Library Services

do differently–ha, again! I can think of many things that I could have done differently. But you guys? You were great cheerleaders, and your instructions were clear. I wish I would have tightened up my cluster of folks that were going to try to push through this this summer, so that we could have supported each other more. Here I am racing through (and, I know, shortchanging) these final exercises and I know that at a certain point during the summer, I just needed a break. I know that was true for my other district comrades, too. I think that maybe structuring it into our school year will work better, with manageable chunks that include deadlines. I’m glad you’re leaving this up for awhile.

participate?–yes I would and I would give myself deadlines and try to team up more concretely (virtually) with another person.

  1. Becca,
    Congratulations! You have successfully completed School Library Learning 2.0 and are now an official member of the CSLA 2.0 Team.

    Hope you will include your Celebrity READ photo on the top of your blog or better yet, your school district website! Wonder if your school board members would like their own Celebrity READ photos!

    Best wishes.

  3. I worked so hard on my avatar that I don’t want to bump it from its prominent position, even though I do like the READ poster, too. I’m plotting a course of eventually having the whole district staff READING throughout all the schools. I might, however, start with the Food Services crew. We have such a dynamic nutrition program going on…. feed your body, eat healthy; feed your mind, read alot…… It would also help integrate the Food Services crew, who otherwise tend to be isolated from the rest of the educational staff of the school system. Mostly what I need to figure out is the cost and how to fund it. By the way full credit for the READ poster is due to Pete Doering and Judy Moomaugh who offered it as an incentive to preregister for their Library Summer Camp, which a crew of 8 of us did from Berkeley. It was great!
