Aug 16 2011 There’s a new slogan rapidly spreading through my school district, as well as other districts across the country: BYOT (bring your own technology). Many of us have been hoping for a more innovative and open philosophy for over five years. We all know the world has changed and we all know that information access is not only at an all time high…we are drowning it it. The books and articles of interest to me of late, however, give rise to caution when it comes to integrating the latest high-tech gadget into our schools. In fact, Kristin Fontichiaro (professor at the University of Michigan) shared with us this week some excellent examples of how online Web 2.0 technology tools are sometimes full of bling and pizzazz without any meaningful content at all!
So you’ve done the ground work. You’ve talked to the teachers and convinced them that you can help them out. They want to meet to plan out library time with you.
