Middle School Media Specialists Mastering 21st Century Skills

First Day at NCCAT

Our laptops are plugged in as we explore technologies and share ideas around a giant conference table with a view of a fountain and budding forsythia.

So far today, I have created a Skype account and avatara (Thanks, Weemee!) and explored GoogleDocs.

I escaped to climb the Wildflower Trail behind the Ayhsti residence and took pictures of some of the first wildflowers to bloom this Spring- all before lunch!

At this point, I'm working my way through the tutorials on http://schoollibrarylearning2.blogspot.com/index.html. This is taking me through blog basics and continuous learning. Tomorrow I'll look at Flikr and import some pictures into the blog!

I worked with my del.icio.us account and added bookmarks throughout the day. I think a webcam is in my future!

Here's a photo of the learningteammiddle Teacher Scholars at dinner last night:
