"I'm all a twitter!" Doesn't this sound like a line from a teen movie?
Guybrarian finally talked me into taking time to "twitter" yesterday so now I am curious of how this tool is being used by other school librarians. Twitter (if you are new to what Twitter is) posts your 160 characters-or-less messages on what you choose to type in. So some folks tell everybody when they are washing the dog to actually sharing links to a great lesson for students. You can add your brief messages to the Twitter network board. You decide who's comments you want to follow.
I also like what I have read so far at: http://blog.twitter.com/.
Stay tuned for my notes on twittering.
I can be found at twitter as "lsummers" you are out there on the twitter network. If not, sign up at http://www.twitter.com.
Our union/bargaining team has asked for input on what can be cut. Here is my list...
Getting rid of....
-Plato (a drill and kill computer program that is too slow and too many technical problems)
-Nettreker (rarely used)
# of school counselors
# out of town professional growth seminars
# of K-8 schools
# Athletic transportation (Hanford is too far)
# of Security
# of ELD classes
No longer purchase...
-Promethian boards (too many times used as a expensive projection screen)
-laptop carts (too expensive for the amount of wear and tear put on them)
-Have Middle School Teacher Librarians split time between the middleschools and the elementary schools that feed into them (District woldbenefit from the library skills that could be taught by the TeacherLibrarians and maybe the salary cost could be split up between all theschools).
