Here’s another new post from the COMO convention. This is a presentation by Jane Zahner of Valdosta State University on “Online Teaching for Media Specialists: Why and How.” All the sessions have been great! Click on the link to see the presentation I created live using CoveritLive, a new Web 2.0 tool I learned about from Mrs. Hamilton.

Ms. Fleet and Ms. Hamilton’s Excellent Adventure

Posted by grizzlymedia on November 1, 2007

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Ms. Fleet and Ms. Hamilton went to Jekyll Island to attend this year’s Georgia Council of Media Organizations Conference. We saw magical entertainer Chad Crews in two presentations, one which included his magic act, and one which included his presentation of “Authors of Mystery and Horror.” Another excellent presenter was Jennifer Link Jones from Georgia State University who presented Cool (Free) Tools. We learned about a dozen new Web 2.0 utilities we could use from Ms. Jones. Other presenters shared display ideas, information about podcasting, United Streaming, and online encyclopedias. We also got to visit many vendors and see their latest library products and books. We are already looking forward to next year’s conference!
