The California School Library Association's CSLA 2.0 Team has announced School Library Learning 2.0. This is a free online tutorial to guide you through the ‘tools of the trade' that your students use every day: blogs, photos and images, RSS and newsfeeds, tagging and technorati, wikis, online applications, podcasting and downloadable audio, and much more. The coolest thing about this tutorial is that it gives you permission to play with all these great tools, AND gives you great ideas on how to create compelling library and curriculum collaborations.
Feedback from a dozen ‘test drivers' has been overwhelmingly positive. This is a fun and fabulous way to learn together and strengthen your collective educational technology savvy. CSLA members who are looking for academic credit can register for Continuing Education Units through Fresno Pacific University.
