School Library 2.0 Week (Updated)

January 9th, 2006 by infomancy

I have been referring to the idea of Web 2.0 (briefly defined as the new socially interactive web) for a couple of months without taking an opportunity to delve a bit deeper. Given a recent flurry of writings on the extension of Web 2.0 ideas into Library 2.0, I think this is a great time to pause and reflect on what this means for those of us in schools and school libraries.

School Library 2.0 Week

This week, I will be exploring my vision for the future of school libraries as related to the idea of Library 2.0 (L2). To start, I will be embarking on my own review of writings about L2 (Sorry Walt, not to predetermine the bandwagon, approach but it is a bit shorter to type). After that, I will spend the rest of the week addressing some of the questions that have been running through my head: What does a School Library 2.0 (SL2) look like? How is this idea different from where we have been and are now? How can we enact the necessary changes? and Why should we care about this anyway?

The Series Collected

  1. SL2.0: Capturing Web 2.0
  2. SL2.0: Synthesis 2.0
  3. SL2.0: Setting the School Stage
  4. SL2.0: Visioning the School Library 2.0
  5. SL2.0: Examples of a Vision

And also, a final post where I was interviewed by Michael Stephens for the ALA Techsource Blog
