The game has changed---totally. School
library practice must adapt to complete shifts in the information and communication landscapes. These shifts are not bandwagons. They represent profound changes in the way we do business, the way we do libraries, the way we must educate. Teacher librarians, as information and communication specialists, must lead change in their buildings or face irrelevancy. The game has changed... and shift is no longer optional. ~Joyce Valenza, Foreward: Choosing Web 2.0 Tools for Learning and Teaching in a Digital World

teachers are combining eﬀorts to resist the conservative status-quo- sustaining nature of our institution and seeking to deﬁne and implement learning 2.0. Uploaded on We have to crack the code. December 19, 2009 by Paul Henman ~David Warlick
• How can I make
my library "Respond?" How can I make it "Talk Back?" • How might it become a place of "Questions" -- not just for answers? • How can I ban silence, provoke "Conversation," and expect learners to exchange knowledge? • How can I make information something to "Invest" in? • How am I daring my students to make the "Mistakes" that feed the learning dialog?

WE all have to be
Walter Cronkite - we have to look at info and make sense of it, participate in it, not just consume it. We need a shared intelligence. Discussion pages in Wikipedia are where people negotiate the truth ---> critical thinking and analysis. Information comes in through twitter, delicious, etc. We share and we all get smarter potentially.

“If you want to improve
learning (all learning is social) (kids tend to ask friends for help), you would focus on the conversations of kids.” ~ Alan November, ISTE 2010 Daniel Pink: Wonder Self- Motivated If you don't have purpose then Self- your motivation Directed to do well is in decline. The key to high performance and satisfaction is intrinsic, internal motivation: the desire to follow your own interests and understand the beneﬁts in them for you.

The term "Web 2.0" is
commonly associated with web applications that facilitate interactive information sharing, interoperability, user-centered design, and collaboration on the World Wide Web. A Web 2.0 site allows its users to interact with each other as contributors to the website's content, in contrast to websites where users are limited to the passive viewing of information that is provided to them. ~ Wikipedia Web 2.0 enables students and YOU to have a global Intrinsic Motivation audience.

The library needs to be a place where students can reach inside to ﬁnd the joy of learning, to play, to “connect around their passions and then become part of something bigger than themselves.”* *Will Richardson ~ ISTE Conference 2010
