TL Virtual Cafe 1st Monday Sessions-My Newest Find Thanks to Twitter!

This past Monday evening I was scanning through my Twitter feeds, retweeting and answering tweets when I came upon a tweet about joining Gwyenth Jones for a Back to School Special starting at 8:00 pm.  I clicked on the link and struck gold! Thank you @jane_librarian!

The TL Virtual Cafe Back To School Special featuring Gwyneth Jones & Tiffany Whitehead took place Monday, September 12, 2011 via Elluminate.  These informative, engaging, entertaining sessions are now in their third year, but they are new to me!

I learned so much during the hour discussion not only from Gwyneth and Tiffany but from the nearly 100 participants as well.  In particular I loved the idea shared about using a digital photo frame to display all the many things you do every day @your library.  I plan on getting this set up in my high school library over the weekend.  I also plan to implement the idea of the 140 character book review using Twitter.  This idea can easily be incorporated into the Virtual Library Club I started this year. I am also sharing this idea with one of my teachers who is using Twitter in his English classroom.

A great summary of the session can be found on Judy Gressel's blog: http://newtrierlibrary.blogspot.com/2011/09/teacher-librarian-virtual-cafe-for.html
