Amazing free PD happening NOW! October 5, 2012

A very quick post that will be followed up in the near future…
Library 2.012 is a 3 day worldwide library conference happening NOW, for the next 7 hours.
I’ve been in “rooms” with Joyce Valenza, The Daring Librarian and many other library superheroes!
I had to force myself to disconnect at 1am this morning, it’s just one amazing session after another!
Can’t recommend it highly enough.
Right, back to the session on Educamps 🙂


eFellowship review from the 2012 Famous Five. August 29, 2012

I must admit to opening the eFellows 2012 Review like I watch gruesome horror movies; eyes half closed and hands over face!
There’s something incredibly uncomfortable about watching and hearing oneself online.
Anyway, ‘feel the fear and do it anyway’ as this was part of the deal of being an eFellow!

Last Friday the 2012 eFellows were interviewed about our year; one piece of advice for future eFellows, and a best takeaway for us personally.
The clip attached was the well edited version of what we said.
DK and Emma, you’re magicans 🙂


Paula’s Playing with Pinterest May 26, 2012

Filed under: Collaboration,eLearning — librarypaula @ 7:11 am

I’ve spent many hours over the last two days geeking out with fellow efellows.
It’s just fantastic to now be following through and dealing to a couple of the things on my massive to-do list from the second Masterclass which has just finished at Core Education HQ.
Pinterest was one of those things.

Apart from it being compulsory to use a Facebook or Twitter login, I’m enjoying my new Pinterest playground, and merrily pinning away!

This poster is one wee treat I’ve discovered in my first explore; I don’t think it only applies to Art Departments, although some of the Art teachers I know do make very good rebel role models:)

Thanks Rachel Boyd for your patience showing me the Pinterest ropes!
