Week 8 - ED566E.1
I LOVE Library Thing! I've now entered lots of books - close to 100. If you'd like to check them out, use the widget link to the right. I began keeping a journal of thoughts about books that I've read - perhaps now I'll incorporate those thoughts here. I'm happy that we explored this application tonight. I'm interested in creating a list of books for "the librarian" for our project website to post a widget to that blog which is titled "What's the Librarian Reading." Check it out here: On The Shelf 4 Kids Website...So Far. So far, so good! I'd like to explore to see if there are more kid friendly services that are similar to Library Thing. I'm also waiting to see how my group has officially designated the age group of this project. As much as I'm waiting to make up my pretend librarian's list, I'm also interested in using this application as a future school library media specialist. On a side note, for the District Library Technology Curriculum Review Committee, I actually visited Springfield today. I was so invigorated by everything that I saw and I can't wait to try out some of those applications as well. As I do, I'll share more!
