Slow start, but the issue still exists.

How about some links for this? An 'Unconference' was advertised in Brisbane Australia and part of the blurb was this:
The concept is based on the principles of Open Space.

'The four principles of Open Space:
• Whoever comes is the right person.
• Whatever happens is the only thing that could have.
• Whenever it starts is the right time.
• When it is over, it is over.

Law of Two Feet:
• If you're neither contributing nor getting value where you are, use your two feet and go somewhere where you can.
• Every individual has two feet, and must be prepared to use them. '

I have been involved in helping teacher librarians plan for the future, for the past two decades. I have written a book on the topic,
I am in the process of updating this book to reflect some 21st century planning techniques. Can I be of assistance?

This group seems to have lost impetus. A group of librarian at Learning2.0 in Shanghai have just met and agreed to get online here. Let's get this discussion back on track. We're all facing change in the near future. Let's manage it rather than letting it manage us!
