One of the best parts of my job as a teacher librarian is finding new tools and media for our teachers and students to use. This week I found a few new ones and here they are:
Google Sites is an incredible resource! It is very easy to use and has a lot to offer. I created one for our library and you can see it at http://sites.google.com/site/vanmeterschoolsecondarylibrary/ I am going to use Google Sites to create an electronic portfolio for my graduate work at the University of Northern Iowa.
Posterous...in which I created one for Our Library VOICE at http://vmlibraryvoice.posterous.com/
I subscribe to the Google Blog. This morning they had a great new resource listed called Freedom of Expression Google This is what the blog said: To commemorate the twentieth anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, we're launching a YouTube channel — youtube.com/GoogleFreeExpression — to highlight and celebrate free expression around the world, and we want to hear from you. What a great new website....We like that we can hear others with a VOICE too using this resource!
