You know I don’t remember a teacher ever really assigning that subject as a writing prompt. Oh well……
So, what am I doing this summer – tech-wise?
Well, one thing I am involved in is North Texas 23: a roundup of web 2.0 technology. It is sponsored by North Texas Library Partners, is free (always a good thing) and is all online. We will take a look at 2.o tech items from blogs and wikis to image generators to social networks and more. I am part of the admin team, with a group of participants to check on, as well as being a participant. If there are librarians out there reading this post, I encourage you to take a look at this. I believe it is a yearly thing so watch for it in the future.
I am also determined to learn Moodle this summer, our district now having a Moodle presence so to speak, so I can use it to help folks with library items such as research — a new component in the ELA teks– and to help district folks use Discovery Streaming more effectively. If you have ideas for using Moodle with Discovery or other items, please post a comment. I would love to see the ideas.
