My wife and I produced a video for the Interwrite Learning contest and lo and behold we are in the finals! This is a $15,000 contest to get her some badly needed technology for her classroom. Problem is we are in the public voting stage of the competition and up against much larger districts with a lot of voting power. If you have liked my videos I ask that you go register and vote for her video. I admit that I am biased in this case, but I know how much she needs this equipment and her…

Beta Test for Yahoo

The new job has really usurped all the time I was spending blogging and reading on the web. I'm slowly starting to get back into the swing of things, though.

Just a head's up for anyone who is interested. Yahoo is looking for beta-testers for some super-secret new tool they're working on. I was a beta-test for the new Search Assist tool they use; it was fun and didn't take much time. Anyway, they want more librarians, so if you're intersted, here's the link.…

Who has influence over administrators?

So many of our professional publications and courses talk about collaborating with classroom teachers. From a listserv I am on I recently received a message asking how to get teachers to collaborate. I could have responded:

I signed up for audio podcasts which I thought would help me decide which video sessions to attend.

Presentation on Weeding

Six and a half years ago I arrived in my current media center. The collection was old and short on accreditation numbers -- I remember 1974 as an estimate of average, but it surprised me that the age was that young!
