Library Learning 2.0: Week 3, Tasks 5-7: A picture is worth...

A picture is worth a thousand words... so maybe this should be a thousand word post (?!?) as I am writing about pictures that you can not [yet] see.

Fortunately, I am a dedicated and self-motivated learner and I am posting this on my vacation from the other side of the country. This has been a learning experience in itself since I am: a) working on a Mac for the first time, b) working without my own saved files or bookmarks and c) vying for computer time with my cousin's three teenagers. Unfortunately, because of clause b), I can not post my many wonderful library photos at this time. Fortunately, I took this opportunity to set up my Flickr account, granted access to Flickr to upload to my blog, and created and saved a post template. Watch out online world, here I come (and thanks Remy Charlip...) !

In my explorations of Flickr, I discovered a group titled "Classroom Displays" that includes photos of classroom and library displays. This could be a place for us to share some of our good ideas. Or, hey kids, let's put on a show! We could set up a Library Learning 2.0 group and link it to the CSLA site! What do you think??

Excellent thoughts!

When you get a chance, this is a good time to check out the "weekly tips" section and to start including which WEEK and THING you are on.

Best wishes.

Thank you for sharing the information about classroom displays on Flickr. This opens a new tool with ideas for those that love great visuals but struggle to come up with ideas. We may not copy these (or we may), but they get us started at least. Even in the beginning you are contributing to the rest of this experience.Keep it coming.

Great ideas for the use of Flickr! Looking forward to reading your other blog posts after your "vacation." :-).

Wow, thanks so much for the tip on library displays. I'm doing a CSLA workshop on bulletin boards and this will be a great resource to mention. Hopefully we can get some more library displays posted and make a great resource! I found some really great ideas using librarydisplay and librarydisplays as keywords.

Hi - you'd all be very welcome in the Classroom Displays group :-) We have quite a few librarians now. You might also be interested in the Classroom Displays blog
