The Adventures of Library Girl: The 10 Web 2.0 Tools/Apps I Use Most As A Teacher, Learner & Leader

The Adventures of Library Girl: The 10 Web 2.0 Tools/Apps I Use Most As A Teacher, Learner & Leader | High School Education and Social Media | Scoop.it

By Jennifer LaGarde

 

"Awhile back Larry Ferlazzo wrote about the Web 2.0/Social Media tools that he uses every day. I read Larry’s blog all the time, but what struck me about this post was not the tools that he listed as being useful to him, (even though I use many of them myself), but rather the actual process of identifying the technology he uses each and every day. Not that this is hard work, mind you, it’s just that technology is such a ubiquitous part of my life; the tools/toys I use most often don’t feel like “tools” at all – rather they are almost an extension of who I am: a part of my daily routine so “normal” that I don’t think twice about the important role they play. Of course I start my day with a cup of coffee, my google reader and a personalized web curation app. Doesn’t everyone?"

"On Monday, I had the opportunity to participate in another fab edition of the TL Virtual Cafe webinar series. This month's PD offering was an "Edutech Smackdown" featuring the Queen of All Things Library: Joyce Valenza. I love these smackdown sessions because they are the ultimate crowdsourced PD. Everybody grabs a slide (or two or ten) and when their time comes, takes the mic to share something they love. They are fun, fast paced and the cream always seems to rise to the top. Delish!"

BookLamp.org matches readers to books through an analysis of writing styles, similar to the way that Pandora.com matches music lovers to new music. @booklamp

Robin Jordan's insight:

With the next generation of adults, collaboration is going to be key. Those who can "think outside the box" (to borrow a tired phrase) and who have the ability to adapt and work with others will be the middle class and upper classes of the future...

Love this new site.  In time it should be an amazing source for students to collect and share their resources.  In the meantime it is an awesome space for teachers to share learning tools!

Pippa Davies @PippaDavies 's curator insight, January 25, 2013 1:27 PM

Techie site of the week!  Check it out and get your students making their own playlists to share with one another or teachers share learning resources with students.

Yes it is newer and still in beta mode. But should take off like scoopit I think.
