Visions of the future from 1910

At this time of stress and inductions, here is bit of light relief!

This is a must for my Information Literacy teaching this term! It is taken from a wonderful collection of illustrations Utopia: "The Quest for the Ideal Society in the Western World" by the French artist, Villemard.

See the collection here.

With thanks to Hey Jude and Stephen's Lighthouse.

Library Learning 2.0

I came across Library Learning 2.0 today. It is an interesting re-working of the famous Helen Blowers "Learning 2.0" programme. Facilitated by Carlene Walter it was intended for teacher-librarians of the Prairie Spirit School Division in Saskatchewan, Canada.
"Library Learning 2.0 is an online learning program that fosters the expansion of one's information literacy toolbox. Participants will explore, experiment with, and discover creative ways to implement into teaching practice Web 2.0 tools - emerging technologies that that are freely available on the Internet and are changing the way students, librarians, and educators access information and communicate. "The program is self-directed.
