Lesson 20 of Library Learning 2.1 has just gone up, which means we’re about a half way through this years lessons. We’ve got some late starters which is great. I was a bit too busy at the beginning of the year to offer as much encouragement as I’d hoped to be able to. I’m also not above resorting to bribes. Check out these awesome foam … Continue reading Box o’ Fun
As part of our Library Learning 2.1 program I wrote a post about Pandora, it went live to the staff yesterday and they are just loving it. Imagine my surprise when I see a comment from Lucia, a staff member at Pandora. How exciting! She left some great tips along with these comments: It’s great to hear that librarians are loving Pandora! I myself left … Continue reading Pandora
Today kicks off our second week of Library Learning 2.1. Robin already wrote a great post about our kick off week, so I wont duplicate it by writing one here.

Perfect!” They’re thrilled that these lessons can … Continue reading Library Learning 2.1 Kicks Off!

Canon PowerShot SD1000 Continue reading LL2.1 Staff Grand Prize
In addition to writing “Things” for the LL2.1 program, I’m searching for prizes. Since the program is different this time I think we’ll be structuring the prizes so that for every 5 or 10 lessons completed they’ll get a small prize, with a larger prize at the end. Smaller prizes will probably be fun things like desk toys candy, flash drive, etc. The nice thing … Continue reading The Search for Prizes
I’ve been busy gearing up for MRRL’s Library Learning 2.1 program. Our official kick off date is January 7th, 2007. Things are going to be a little different for this round. For example: The program will last all year. Each week there will be only one lesson, a micro lesson, that can be completed in one hour. Library staff and patrons are welcome to participate, … Continue reading Library Learning 2.1
