School Year 07-08 - We're off and Running!

I don't know about the rest of you, but this has been the rockiest start to the school year I can remember. The new technologies our district has implemented will eventually (I hope!) make things better . We have a new Internet authentication system, and are struggling with the process of helping students log in - when so many have difficulties remembering their user name & password. The great fear is that students will stop trying to use the online catalog all together.

On a brigher note, I had a delightful full day retreat with all of the school librarians from my district, and we spent some time exploring 2.0 technologies, and how they might be used in their school ibrary programs, or just to provide a platform for them to share ideas and best practices with each other between meetings. We looked at the issue of information literacy assessment, and I learned that they are doing some great things to be sure our students are learning and practicing these critical skills. Research reflection journals, peer evaluation, checklists, conferencing, and more.

Hoping all of you out there are off to a great start!
