Name of Your School / Library / Organization:

I'm a high school librarian in Austin, Texas, and fascinated by web 2.0 tools and how these can transform the work that students do. My wiki site can be found at www.connectedlibraries.pbwiki.com, and there are links there for workshops and "how tos" on many tools. I look forward to sharing ideas!

  • I have something very vital to disclose with you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me via my direct email(susanwalphonsus001@gmail.com) for more details.
    Have a nice day,

  • Greetings Carolyn,


    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!

  • Carolyn,
    I co-presented with Bonnie Hauswer at HCLC and also enjoyed your workshop. I especially like the point you made about kids writing bad words on the bathroom wall with a Sharpie. No, we can't prevent kids from making bad choices, but that shouldn't keep us from using web 2.0 with them. I also will remember your statistic, that 71% of teens are already social networking. Thank you!
  • I really enjoyed meeting you today. I look forward to getting more great ideas and advice from you here!
  • Great to have you in the BCC Group, Carolyn. I hope you will share how Web 2.0 tools are impacting collaboration with classroom teachers at your school.
