MLC Libraries and Web 2.0 technologies

3,037 views

Published on

This workshop paper explores the Web 2.0 journey of the MLC Libraries teacher-librarians, librarian, library and audio visual technicians. Our journey was initially inspired by Will Richardson and supported by the School Library Association of Victoria (SLAV) Web 2.0 professional development program. The 12 week technological skills program ‘23 things’ assisted in motivating the MLC Libraries team to adopt Web 2.0 technologies into their daily work with students and staff.
