SSIS Library Activities

This has taken all day long. For some reason the html was copying and pasting with a broken link. Don't even know how I got it right the last time. Instructions were very easy, but the doing was difficult.

Week Three Thing Six

Exploring Mashups---made the trading card. Very easy. Can see it used with students perhaps during February--Black History Month activites. Or inventor or explorer reports.

Alabama Spring 2007

Posted by Picasa

Week Three Thing 6

I explored a third party site that allowed me to do a montage of my own pictures. Didn't know I could even do that. Then I imported from that site into the Bookladyspeaks blog. Results--Alabama Spring 2007

Week 3 Thing 5 (retry, retry)

Uploaded using URL. I went to some other people's blogs on School Library Learning 2.0 and just happened to read that you have to use the URL of the photo not the webpage---so I tried again. Thanks for the help of all of you successful before me--especially Joan's School Library Learning where I found my tip.

Week 3 Thing 5 (Retry)

Last night I was able to copy from flickr to my desktop so I know I can do it. Now an attempt to put one on the blog----hold on
Hooray! I did it but only by copying to desktop and then putting in blog. I was not able to put in the url and get it. But whatever, it is here now.
Now a new task.

Week Three Thing 5

I have been exploring Flickr for a week or so now. Always amazed and intrigued by the pics. So many tags to look under. Such a suprise today when I happened upon this post.

I tried to upload a picture from Flickr of a tshirt that reads Librarian 2.0 but I am only getting boxes with an x in it. The site said the picture is public so I thought it should work. Not yet away!

Maybe the pictures are copyrighted and I don't know it. I am going to try a picture from my computer of the library cat....Tigger
That worked! Tomorrow I will try Flickr again.

No work

With company from Florida, babysitting grand-darlings, and Bible School with 2, 3, 4, and 5 year olds I have done no work on my Library 2.0. Maybe back on task next week. The kids have been fun though.

District Media Specialists Come Onboard

I have contacted the other media specialists in my district to see if others would want to participate in these activities. Two have responded favorably. We may get a local community online after all.

There have some been some changes to my avatar since I first posted. You now will see a library cat in the picture. We actually have one in our 4 - 6 library. His name is Tigger and he has been a presence since 1998. You can see his picture on the following link Click on How many library cats are there in the world, then on the map click on Alabama, then Tigger's name. You will see that my virtual cat is almost a twin to the real one!

Getting Started

Week 1 & Week 2

I have been finding out about this Library 2.0 for several weeks and have hoped to have others in my district participate also. So far, only me.

The 7 1/2 habits powerpoint was user friendly and gave me some food for thought. I really do accept responsibility for my own learning. I am determined to complete this course even with no professional development credit. This is stuff I just really need to know--credit or not. As far as an area of problem--it is beginning with an end in mind. I really think in the school library setting if your "end in mind" is too inflexible you miss an awful lot of good stuff all day long.

I have now created a blog--really easy. I guess picture is next.

Corrected---she is an avatar and she is done! and at school
