I’ve recently begun following the information musings of Kim Cofino at her blog, Always Learning. Kim is currently teaching at the International School Bangkok in Thailand as a 21st Century Literacy Specialist. She describes her positions as follows:
I see this role as a bridge between the library and technology, and therefore, a key aspect of this position, which makes it different than a traditional technology facilitation position, is the strength of collaboration between all three teams.”
Kim has a lot of very interesting and informative posts concerning optimizing the classroom setting using Web2.0 technologies. Some of our favorites are:
- Moving a Community Forward – Some thoughts on how they’ve been fostering a sense of community – using both online an offline channels – at ISB as part of their work.
