Presentations and workshops

I have been pretty busy with presentations and workshops in the last two weeks. I thought that you may be interested in what I’ve been presenting. The week before last I presented a one-hour professional development event for teaching staff at a middle school in one of the county school districts. The topic was the MeL (Michigan Electronic Library) databases – subjects and features, staff and student uses. The next day I presented a two and a half hour workshop on podcasting to middle school staff in another school district. Luckily, everything worked great – Audacity, Soundsnap and Switchpod.

Two weekends ago I presented a 50 minute session on “Web 2.0 for Educators and Students” at the Michigan Reading Association Conference at Cobo in Detroit. At this conference I was representing MAME – the Michigan Association for Media in Education which is the statewide association for school library media specialists. I am the 2008 President of MAME and a few of the MAME officers presented at the conference, in part, to communicate the role of the media specialists in schools.

Last Thursday I presented on Web 2.0 to a group of public librarians holding a meeting at the beautiful West Bloomfield Public Library. I really enjoyed this presentation and it was fun to present to my fellow librarians. They asked some great questions and I learned some new things myself because public librarians use some Web tools that are different than what is used in schools.

The attendees for all of these professional development events were interested and engaged. They asked good questions and many told me that they truly plan to use some of the Web 2.0 tools in their work.
