Technology in the School Media Center has delivered a sense of confidence through which I feel I can achieve the ability to educate and inspire through web 2.0 technologies in the school media center. For more than 10 years I have worked as a Knowledge Base and Technical Specialist for camera companies which has provided me with a solid technical base from which to learn about web 2.0 tools. What I was most pleased with by taking course 626 was the ability to direct the use of various web 2.0 technologies into skill-appropriate lessons in the school library.
Social Bookmarking tool Delicious is really useful. Why haven't I been using this before? The ability to manage and access bookmarks from any device is really convenient. Tagging book marks allows them to be accessed through various keywords instead of only having the title of the webpage in my list of favorites.
The ability to showcase the work I have completed incorporating web 2.0 tools into age-appropriate lessons was the most valuable aspect of the course. As a candidate for School Librarian opportunities I will frequently update the Blog and Wiki with new content as I continue to find relevant ideas to share.
