I decided to look back on the posts that caused me to look at education and libraries in new ways this year. Here they are (in no particular order):
- Learn to learn, adapt to change, scan the horizon from Michael Stephens, Tame the Web. (March 2007).
- Collaborating with Jackie Siminitus and Connie Williams to develop and implement School Library Learning 2.0. (May 2007)
- The new AASL school library standards from Sara Kelly Johns. (Oct 2007)
- The AASL 2.0 Task Force from Joyce Valenza. Moving the profession forward. (Nov. 2007)
- ALA Magazine’s re-focus on school libraries from Doug Johnson. (March 2007)
- YALSA blog’s response to the National Endowment of the Arts report, “To Read or Not to Read. ” (Nov. 2007)
- Creating an RSS feed when there isn’t one and many other useful posts from Sarah Houghton-Jan, the librarian in black.
- Seven Habit of Ineffective people from Stephen Abram. (Dec. 2007)
And these powerful YouTube videos that have been used over and over…
