Austin, Texas
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, and there are links there for workshops and "how tos" on many tools.

I look forward to sharing ideas!

Inspiration from Joyce Valenza

I had the opportunity to hear Joyce at NECC this past few days, and her presentation was incredibly inspiring. Her vision to share the web 2.0 tools and help students become information fluent infused the whole presentation.

She really stressed creating pathfinders for students, which I do, but she creates them on everything, and ties in many sources that I wouldn't have thought of. And she uses wikis for the pathfinders so that other teachers can add sources as well, which is quite…

Greetings Carolyn,


I'm Mike McQueen, teacher librarian and founder of 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 . 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!

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!
