blogging on glogging

Hello, folks!

I'm spending my winter vacation playing with a scrapbook-type website called Glogster. It has a very simple interface and some wild and cutesy graphics, but its real power lies in the fact that the the pages (called posters or glogs) can be embedded in another website. Since my HTML skills are at the cut-and-paste level, using Glogster and then embedding the result in my own website means I can create some nice effects. I made a… Continue

Deep Web!

A while back Joyce asked people to find out what database our state used. Found out last week that via our public library we can use EBSCO! As a very poor excuse for a media center specialist, I was overjoyed!!!
Maybe others can access similar databases in their states?

OSLA/OLA Superconference in Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Hello everyone, I had the opportunity to attend the OSLA/OLA Superconference in Toronto, Ontario last week. It is considered to be one of the best librarian and teacher librarian conference in Canada. Mother nature threw us a major snowstorm of 20+ cm on Thursday but we managed well in the conference centre. I was present at two important launches while I was there. A group from the Ministry of Education in Ontario and the Ontario School Librarian Association have just tabled a draft document… Continue

A New Twitter

"I'm all a twitter!" Doesn't this sound like a line from a teen movie?

Guybrarian finally talked me into taking time to "twitter" yesterday so now I am curious of how this tool is being used by other school librarians. Twitter (if you are new to what Twitter is) posts your 160 characters-or-less messages on what you choose to type in. So some folks tell everybody when they are washing the dog to actually sharing links to a great lesson for students. You can add your…

There's a list being put together in my district of proposed cuts. One of them of course being the elimination of the Teacher Librarian position. Our school board proposed to eliminate these four positions (yes, there are only four Teacher Librarians for a growing district that includes two high schools, three middle… Continue
