Marilyn Arnone who uses the book in a course entitled "Information Technologies for Educational Organizations" says, "This book goes way beyond explaining the how to of the technologies; its important contribution is in sharing a myriad of ways to enhance the teaching of 21st century skills in the context of the curriculum and in a way that engages student learning."

BlogsRSS icon

Technology was a focus of Chapter 4. So we are suggesting a blog of someone who is always trying out fresh ideas for using technology in her library. One awarding-winning library blog you should visit often belongs to school librarian Buffy Hamilton. In her post acknowledging her honor of winning the 2011 School Library Blog Award from The Salem Press Library Awards, she wrote, "This blog is a vital reflection medium for me that is the ongoing story of my growth and continued evolution as a professional. Additionally, this blog has connected me with so many wonderful library and education professionals who share their ideas and push my thinking . . ."  Her blog is called quite appropriately The Unquiet Librarian.

Twitter Hashtags Twitter icon

If you are interested in joining in conversations about the use of technology in education, one of the most popular Twitter tags is hashtag #edtech.

 

Another one that focuses on technology use in the classroom (and applies to librarians, as well) is #vitalcpd.
