Navigating the New and Building a New Site

The CSLA/CLA "Navigating the New" conference was wonderful! All three sessions I participated in went without hitches, and the audience participation and feedback was very rewarding. Here is the Google Docs slideshow link for the Teen Learning 2.0 session Sheryl Grabow-Weiss presented and here is the Prezi for my VoiceThread session. While neither of these stand alone without commentary, feel free to contact me with questions about either of them.

My only problem with the conference is that I promised myself I'd spend part of my Thanksgiving week off digesting and organizing what I learned, and, here its already Thursday (Thanksgiving Day), and I have so many miles to go. However, I made one resolution while I was there to scrap my new library wiki, which, for whatever reason doesn't seem to be working for me, and create a new library site. I kept fretting about changing gears after I have been trying to "sell" the wiki, but I figure it is better to change early if I am sure I need to change. Yesterday, I got down to it, and now have a "beta" version I would love feedback on. Here's the link. I still have lots to do, but am putting it "out there" now, since I would love feedback. So please do check it out if you can. Also, I really need to give it a rest and get going on my Thanksgiving dinner! I am so thankful this Thanksgiving for my family, my wonderful network of library folks and teachers, and to my school for hiring me and supporting me in my new job.

I am determined to get through my conference thoughts and post more soon, so stand by. :)
