Last Thursday, our webinar, Is There a Place for Media Specialists Who Don’t Know Social Media? was graciously hosted by Steve Hargadon, who manages the The Future of Education as well as the Classroom 2.0 Nings. Carolyn Foote, Buffy Hamilton, and Cathy Nelson were our panelists.
Steve hinted at it in our planning discussions and he very kindly made the offer more formally during our session. He is eager to host library-related discussions on a regular basis.
(This is quite generous. Steve holds to his offer despite the fact that I did a rather shabby job getting from screen to screen and getting to discussing all those things we’d hoped to discuss the other night. Screen shots for sure, next time around!)
And so I ask, do school librarians want a regular, free, Elluminate chat time and space? We could meet monthly to talk issues and host authors, experts, academics, and innovative practictioners. We could share our effective/best practice.
The problem is that I tend to say "yes" to nearly everything anyone asks of me. If we want to do this, we will need a team. We will need to rotate planning and hosting responsibilities.
I’d be happy to get the ball rolling, but you emerging leaders out, this is the time to emerge!
Who wants to play? What guests would you like to see? What would you like to talk about?
