In his keynote speech at TIE Copper Mountain last summer Will Richardson asked participants where we get our information. Who are our mentors? Who pushes us to do our best? Who are the members of our professional learning networks? Alec Curosa asked this question on his Voicethread.
For myself- I’ve found fabulous librarians doing amazing things. Buffy Hamilton’s work on the Unquiet Library blog taught me how to use delicious bookmarks as pathfinders. I’ve used TWITTER to connect with other Teacher Librarians (wow my pgoerner is one of the 600 + librarians listed!). In fact- wouldn’t it be cool if all our state organizational blogs could be linked together?
I’ll start! Take a look at this one. The Georgia Library Media Association…there are some really great posts and good ideas that we can use! Start adding more that you know in the comment section- let’s make some good contacts!
Keep building your networks with folks that challenge and support your work! ~guybrarian
