I am honored to be a virtual guest speaker Monday evening (September 14) for Dr. Lisa Trip and her LIS5313 students. Here are some of the talking points we’ll kick around:
Examples of what I’ve done with technology and why
How to manage it all & continue to innovate (how do you think about whether or not to try something new, when do you ‘drop’ something)
What we think library 2.0 means for libraries ((implications for library staff, library services, users…)
Specific issues & challenges I’ve dealt with
Recommendations for others
Thanks to Jim Randolph, “Teacher Ninja” and SLM candidate at UGA, I am using Google Moderator for this presentation. Last week, Dr. Tripp emailed the link to my Google Moderator series I set up for this upcoming talk; we also Tweeted it using the course hashtag #lis5313. Last night, I took about an hour to answer the questions that had come in, and I think it will help facilitate the conversations we will have in the Elluminate classroom Monday night. You can see my Google Moderator series here:
I would like to alert you to an upcoming web event this week from “The Future of Education” series hosted by the wonderful Steve Hargadon. This “webinar” is free and open to anyone; if you miss the live show, it will be recorded for viewing at a time that works for you. The web event will be held via Elluminate, which you can install/download for free; I suggest logging in about 20-30 minutes ahead of time if you have not used Elluminate so that you can configure you audio settings before the web event begins.
There are dramatic changes taking place that seem likely to change our experiences with books and reading. They include: pre-publication “wikified” collaboration, electronic delivery, open licensing, increased author-reader and reader-reader conversation, shared annotations, and more. Join this amazing panel as we peer into the near and long-term future of the reading experience.
