Yesterday I heard a presentation by librarian extraordinaire, Joyce Valenza. You can check out her website or her blog to get the latest scoop on cutting edge tools for learning. She presented a myriad of ideas for research, monitoring your digital footprint or Internet safety, copyright and fair use policies, as well as how to manage these topics in today's world. The art of digital storytelling was another topic she covered and posted several good resources to check out before beginning a project. She briefly discussed the used of cell phones as tools for learning. They are currently working on developing their policies for that. Interestingly, she closed out her session talking about the importance of giving students the tools of their time to use for learning...a pretty profound statement, and so true.
