TLNing (

A community for teacher-librarians and other educators

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 logical.

She mentioned even having students help add to the pathfinder.

She has a site sharing the tools and ideas she talked about, and the updated powerpoint will be added soon. Also I blogged it as I was listening to her presentation and my notes, (which I was taking live) are here.

The other thing she modeled was a great presentation, tying the presentation together with a theme--a great example of a TEACHER/librarian.

Thanks, Joyce, for the inspiration.

Thanks, Carolyn! You are very kind. It was super to meet you. I was glad we had a strong TL presence at NECC. Wasn't EduBloggerCon a blast? AASL next?

I should also mention her co-presenter, Ken Rodoff, who did an excellent job of bringing in the classroom perspective.
