Name of Your School / Library / Organization:
I retired from the University of Central Florida in August 2007. I've been working on a survey about school library media specialists knowledge and use of webtools (web 2.0) and a wiki where we can all share resources and ideas for using webtools to make us more productive and engage students in their own learning.
Library, School, or Professional Website:
http://webtools4u2use.wikispaces.com
PLEASE add any examples of Web 2.0 tools in use in your library media center to the WebTools4U2Use wiki. It really needs REAL WORLD examples.

Greetings Donna,

 

I'm Mike McQueen, teacher librarian and founder of http://www.GettingBoysToRead.com. Like many school districts, we are in a financial crises. Our school board recently proposed to eliminate ALL 20+ middle school teacher librarians and also cut all 90+ elementary schools to half time. Since we are the biggest district in all of Colorado, we worry this will cause other districts to follow suit.

We launched an online movement and are going to do our best to put up a good fight. If possible, please visit our Facebook page and "Like" us http://www.facebook.com/SupportSchoolLibraries . Adding a positive comment and sharing with your friends would help our morale as well. The board finalizes the budget soon so your timely support would be greatly appreciated!

Sincerely,


Mike McQueen

Hi, Donna!
We've been at it again!
My students and I would like to invite you to Freeze-n-Read 4 Libraries on 4.17.10 @ 4pm and ask you to help us promote our National Library Week/library advocacy event! We've made another website that explains it... www.freeze-n-read.weebly.com
I'd love to hear that college students are participating...do have any contacts that might help us get the word out? I've really learned a lot from this project and it's only just beginning!
I hope all is well with you,
Kathy


Sincerely,
Kathy Adams and the Freeze-n-Read Staff

Thank you, Donna!
I realized I have a few other things to share with you...but I have family coming in today and I need to get off the computer!!!! LOL!
I'll get back to you!
Did you hear back from the Edublogs contest? I haven't seen a list of winners...but I've been very busy...

Hi, Donna!
I am finishing up a major Web 2.0 project that I thought you might like to see. I hope you enjoy it... www.catbookler.weebly.com
Creative Scholastic Book Fairs are special events for us. We have been fortunate enough to win their National Student Crew Contest twice and have just entered our first Web 2.0 book fair into their Fall 2009 contest.
I'll post the link on your wiki, too...along with a couple of other things I've done lately.
Happy New Year!

Hey!
I tried to comment back from my phone, but I don't see it here...so just in case, I'll say it again...you always have a tremendous positive impact in everything you do for us in our profession...so I'm sure this workshop was no different. It was remote? That would be challenging in and of itself. I guess you don't live in Debary any longer...NC?

How did everything go yesterday, Aunty Tech?

You are welcome! Have fun at FAME. I wish I could go. Not many of us in Lee County will be there. September conferences are just about impossible for our bookkeepers to do. The money just came in this week. Deb Hanson is the only media specialist I know that is going. She was our leader at the summer cadre that started me on this journey. I hope she introduces herself to you! She's amazing! Maybe Deb will tweet everything so we can feel like we are there...like Joyce Valenza did at ALA :) Fun!

Thanks! I just saw your message! I spend quite a bit of time this past weekend trying to make sense of fair use and apply it to my Prezi... I'm still a little confused, but I am comfortable in your using it as it is. I'm very glad you like it so much!
I will send you a quick email next with something else fun you can use if you wish!
Thanks for all you do, Donna!

This is the page where I found your prezi...and others. I'm not sure how I got there. You can email me at baumbach@mail.ucf.edu. Anytime!

Really? You can see the ones I'm working on? Interesting. I'm using the Welcome to the Media Center one with all our students this week...my reading teachers and students are loving Prezi. :) I have just started the orientation Prezi. I am considering making it into a center/scavenger hunt. I think Prezi would make great centers. I could sent it up with multiple versions that have slightly different paths and have students running all over the media center finding clues for some sort of self checking perfect practice thing hidden on the Prezi.
I was able to share my groundblog with one teacher today, too. Exciting! If you have an email, I have something else you might want to see or share. Thanks! Kathy
