Introduction to Creative Commons–A Video

Thanks to Steve Hargadon on the Classroom2.0 ning. He posted a link to this great video that I think does a wonderful job of quickly explaining what Creative Commons is and how it came about.

This would be a good intro for teacher PD. Only problem that I see is that in our district, all social media sites like youtube, flickr, photobucket, etc. are blocked for students. Teachers can now access them though, so for photos, flickrstorm would be a good option to share with them as well.

Here’s the video to share:

Cyberbullying Guide

On his Blue Skunk Blog, the amazing Doug Johnson has posted Mankato’s new Cyberbullying Guide, which is well worth a look as we’re getting our cyberbullying curriculum going in our district’s libraries. The pdf contains a nice list of cyberbullying resources as well, including quite a few of Nancy Willard‘s resources.

BTW, Web 2.o classmates, if you’re not subscribed to Johnson’s Blue Skunk Blog, you might consider adding it to your Google Reader! I think he’s really one of the important “thinkers” in our field today. Check it out!

New Bloggers!

Our district librarians & ed-tech team have formed a cohort of web2.0 learners, and we have some that have made some exciting discoveries! Welcome to the Blogosphere, ladies! Keep posting and commenting! It’s very exciting for your fellow bloggers to get comments! Kudos to you all for taking the plunge and learning about these new technologies that are so “native” to our students’ lives.

Online Connections

Wow! I read about Jennifer Dorman’s Online Connections class on Cool Cat Teacher Blog this morning and took a quick look at it. Wow! Dorman has used the web 2.0 tools that we have all learned about over the past few months and taken this course to a whole new global level. Her course has a global slant that we know is important for the 21st century. I wanted to mention it on my blog so I don’t forget to go back and look it over more carefully. It really looks primo.

March of the Librarians

Once you get started looking at YouTube videos, it’s hard to stop! I found another one (from a link on The Hollywood Librarian) that is just hilarious! A parody of March of the Penguins.
