Teacher Librarians and Library Media Specialists should be the early adopters of technology and look at you, you are participating in a blog. Congratulations, YOU ARE a 21st Century Librarian! Share your connections with others.Education blogs are becoming a means for educators, students, and education administrators to interact more effectively than ever before and a “top 100″ education blogs list was recently published by the Online Education Database. The list is not ranked but rather is ordered alphabetically within each topic: http://oedb.org/library/features/top-100-education-blogs. Scan through the list for specific blogs that will assist you and others in your building. Some of my favorites from this list include:
http://coolcatteacher.blogspot.com/, https://casl.wordpress.com//, http://www.dissertationresearch.blogspot.com/, and http://www.thisweekineducation.com/I like the blogs that inform me of other great resources and current news that may affect the future of librarians, technology, and other educators. Blogs work best with regular readers and contributors. What blogs are your favorites? Now that you are a 21st Century Librarian, start by interacting with this blog. It is designed for you to share your expertise with others in the school library community. Let your voice and words be heard on the CASL Blog.
