Building a Virtual  Professional  Learning Community
 “It may be that the great age of libraries is waning, but I am here to tell you that the great age of librarians is just beginning. It’s up to you to decide if you want to be a part of it.”				~ T. Scott Plutchak“The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.” 				~ Alvin Toffler
Today…we need to be part of a PLC (professional learning community)because we cannot keep up with the incredible changes taking place in information technology alone!Thanks, UW Colleagues, for helping me learn.   							~Val

Value of the UW Virtual World Certificate ProgramI was introduced to the magic of virtual worlds as a graduate of the University of Washington Virtual World Certificate Program.I had the opportunity to learn with many uniquely talented people who all worked toward common goals and offered their special contributions  in the completion of our project. I am particularly interested in identifying new and emerging career paths and helping people find satisfying work matching their interests, skills, personality, and values. The UW Virtual Worlds program revealed:the power of social mediathe growth of 3D webthe use of virtual worlds in distance education.
