The Unquiet Librarian web 2.0 I was on Pinterest the other night just looking through classroom pins and, of course, many teachers were pinning ideas for the beginning of the school year. But what became apparent to me was that none of the ideas that I saw used any technology, but each idea could so easily be transformed into a technology-rich lesson. (Don't get me wrong- they are all GREAT lessons/ideas- I am just a Technology Integration Specialist- so looking for the tech- OK?) So, if you are interested in using more technology in your classroom this year, let's start from DAY 1! 1. This first cool idea comes from the Thoughts of a Third Grade Teacher blog. 2.

I love this idea from 5. 6. Graphing Our Favorite Summer Activity comes from Madden's Monsterous Masterminds.

Association of International Librarians and Information Specialists A primary aim of The Association of International Librarians and Information Specialists (AILIS) is to foster better communication and closer co-operation amongst international librarians and information specialists in the Geneva - Lausanne area. But more than that, because of the great changes that have occurred in the world of information during last decade, AILIS provides an opportunity to learn about the trends in our profession. In particular AILIS co-sponsors the programme "Library Science Talks" which consists of 5-6 presentations per year given by internationally recognized specialists in the field. International organizations are major providers and users of data and need to stay current to continue serving their constituents with easily accessible and up-to-date information. Their libraries and information centres play a vital role in this work . AILIS assists in this effort by finding practical ways of promoting co-operation amongst its members.
