  • I’d like to thank Lisa Comstock and the CT Humanities Council for inviting me to speak this afternoon! As a librarian, daughter of a 30-yr veteran first grade teacher and mother of a toddler and preschooler, I’m delighted to be a part of this marvelous program. Web 2.0 is a topic about which I have a great deal of enthusiasm, and, although I’m still learning and discovering new things I’m pleased to share with you some thoughts on Web 2.0 applications and their uses for personal productivity and support of literacy programming.
