On Monday, I was fortunate and honoured to be the keynote speaker at a New England Region teacher-librarians’ professional learning day at Westdale Public School in Tamworth. My brief was to present “School library makeovers on a shoestring budget – and Adventures in Web 2.0”.
It was great to meet host TL Zoe Morris and all the TL attendees, but many thanks to Patrick Sullivan (aka sullypm) for introducing us to his Breakkie with a Teckkie page, which both promotes the Web 2.0 video conference series for NSW DEC teachers, and has hyperlinks to a huge range of amazing Web 2.0 tools.
I particularly liked (and am already using, or about to use):
The book rappers in 2B at Caddies Creek PS created this digital story of “The terrific teacher and the twenty-two kids” for the Book Week 2011 book rap on Photo Peach. It is inspired by the shortlisted picture book, “The tall man and the twelve babies” by Tom Niland Champion, Kilmeny Niland & Deborah Niland.
Meanwhile, Class 2H at Caddies Creek PS created this great digital story of “Snappy the crocodile” for the Book Week 2011 book rap on Photo Peach. It is inspired by the popular picture book, “Edward the emu” by Sheila Knowles & Rod Clement.
The book rappers in 2P at Caddies Creek PS created their digital story, “My uncle’s donkey on holidays”, for the Book Week 2011 book rap on Photo Peach. It is inspired by the shortlisted picture book, “My uncle’s donkey” by Tohby Riddle.
Bankstown PS’s Book Rap Heroes (Year 3) created their amazing digital story, “The secret forest hero”, on Storybird. Click HERE to view their online eBook made for the Book Week 2011 book rap.
The book rappers at Kingswood PS also created a digital story, “My teacher’s gorilla”, for the Book Week 2011 book rap. Featuring a huge stuffed gorilla toy and other library friends, it was compiled in Photo Peach. They based it upon the CBCA-nominated picture book, “My uncle’s donkey” by Tohby Riddle.
