Pointing to effective practice, join the wiki!

What does an effective school library look like?  What does it look like online? 

One of the big issues in our field is that we do not have a clear way to point to effective practice. What does our best stuff look like? 

Considering our relatively new ability to share so much of our programs online, this should not be a problem. 

So, let’s start collecting and sharing out loud.

Let’s revive the wiki I used a few years back to house my dissertation research and completely repurpose it.

Please consider joining me and a few fabulous colleague geek squaders in an effective practice experiment.
(The very amazing Gwyneth Jones, Marie Slim, and Karen Kliegman have agreed to lead our wiki! Others are very welcome, as well.)

Like many things 2.0, this is an experiment in radical trust.  We are not listing criteria for inclusion.  Please share what you consider your best work. 

Share your main library websites: elementary, middle school and high school examples and please also share specific examples of effective practice in the following areas:

Please also add your names to our lists of SchoolLibraryBloggers and SchoolLibraryTweeters  and consider linking us to your best presentations

Please also suggest other types of pages for sharing. 

Together, let’s see what we can grow.  Let’s see what we might point to as effective practice.

    I like the idea because of how useful and practical it sounds. I want to see what others are doing and share my products and get feedback to get better. I didn’t see how to join this wiki; or are you just seeking support at this time. I do not have time to twitter or blog so I cannot be added to those lists!

    I am very excited about this prospect, and want to join the ranks. After being at AASL and seeing in real time how we can foment change as much as being recipients of it in our profession, this potential sharing venue will keep us at the crest of the wave rather than in the undertow.
