The Impact of Library 2.0

Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it.
- Greg Anderson

It has been an adventure to take part in the Library 2.0 experience. I have learned a great deal about Web 2.0 and have discovered many new tools to help me become a better teacher, collaborator, and teacher librarian. I thoroughly enjoy these kinds of activities and am a life-long learner at heart. I hope that there will be a Library 2.02 or maybe we will need a Library 3.0 soon.

One of the prompts suggested for this blog is to describe the program in one word or one sentence. I think the best descriptor I can give Library 2.0 is “POWERFUL”. Learning is just that, powerful. I can’t wait to put what I have learned into action and share many of these tools with my students and staff.

I hereby pronounce my completion of the Library 2.0 program, and will move in to the implementation phase of my learning.

I proclaim to:
  • Take the web2.0 skills I have learned and use them in my daily teaching and learning.

  • Provide students with the tools that will support and excite them about learning.

  • Encourage teachers to “take a risk” and step into the land of Web 2.0 where they can learn new technology skill that support student learning.

The important work of moving the world forward
does not wait to be done by perfect men.

- George Eliot (1819 - 1880)
