  1. In our group. the tools that are already in use in our libraries are PB Wiki, Voicethread, podcasting, and Google Docs. All of us agreed that a great way to build interest and support for these tools is to use them with staff first, such as the school leadership team.
    A big question from the group, as students are expected to use online tools more and more for school, is what to do about those without computers at home. Some ideas discussed were to extend the hours of the school library, or to form partnerships with the public library. It was mentioned by one school librarian that a partnership is already in place for her students, who now have extended time periods on the public library computers when they show a school ID card.

  2. One thing we struggle with is that many of the sites we would like to use are blocked automatically or manually by our firewall/filters. How are others dealing with balancing safety with access? Who are the people involved in those conversations and making those decisions at your location?

  3. I’m using GoodReads (social networking for readers) with my high school Teens’ Top Ten Galley Group. Fortunately the district doesn’t block it. I’m working on Twitter with the librarians and library media staff. I’ve used PBWiki and Google Sites in working on presentations with librarians who live in other states and it has worked really well. I’m hoping to work with some of the librarians here in the district using wikis.
