This group is for those who wish to share about using collaborative Web 2.0 tools in their library instruction. Here we can discuss what tools we are using, make connections for collaboration, and celebrate our technological triumphs!See More
This is a group open to all librarians but specific to international school librarians. Since we usually don't have a district or neighboring schools to rely on, let's create our own network here.See More
I recently relocated to Istanbul to teach at an international school. It's been a fantastic experience so far and very challenging. If you want to know more about the international teaching experience, drop me a line.
We're it, as far as I know. I'm trying to get my colleague here in Santa Fe, also named Susan, to join. I'm thinking of extending an invitation to the high school librarian in Cuba.
Wouldn't it be nice to have a group of us New Mexicans here? (And wouldn't it be even nicer to be able to meet face-to-face on occasion?)
Hope all is well in L.L.
I currently work as an independent consultant but have always been looking at ICT as a tool for helping to motivate and reconnect students from all age ranges. I don't currently work in a school but my background is in special ed. I just think the elements available in web 2.0 are currently underused, possibly due to lack of confidence by educators. For the students, however, it's everyday usage for them at home.
Hi Susan ,
I'm a teacher librarian & recently started a community based blog for getting boys to read - http://GettingBoysToRead.com. Please send me a friend request if you'd like to network, share ideas, and learn more about getting boys to read.
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!
Teacher Librarian at McLain HS

Mansfield University Scholarship Program – Begin in January 2012
In an ongoing effort to recruit a new generation of school library leaders, Mansfield University recently received a fifth Institute of Library and Museum Services (IMLS) grant to fund scholarships for its totally online School Library & Information Technologies Master of Education degree program with school library certification. If you know of an educator or non-certified librarian seeking school library certification, please pass along the news that we are still accepting applications for the spring 2012 semester.
The Master of Education program, ideally suited for working educators
with no time to drive to a university, offers a convenient and effective path to school library certification. For detailed information and contacts please refer to the Fulfilling the Promise homepage, at http://libweb.mansfield.edu/promise/, or contact Cynthia Keller, Department Chair firstname.lastname@example.org
