Hello. Just looking in. I am NOT a librarian, but support them in Central NY, providing Blackboard as a main vehicle for them to use from this site: http://blackboard.ocmboces.org
Check out this emerging site. The librarian in question has only had about 2 hours of instruction. Her "Special Projects" link is not open to guest viewing, but hosts discussions and file exchanging for her Freshman Class, her Writer's Chair competition, and her Bibliotec Club. You can find contact information if interested from her site below:
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!
