Week 1, Thing 2

Life long learning

What a nifty tutorial that was! I think it would be good for my high school students, especially the seniors. I am considering ways I can encourage my Library Science students to use the learning tool box idea for class assignment. The habit I have always had is #1. Before the web, I used to say that I attended L. A. Times University. Now with the web there are so many options that it leads to what is probably my weakest habit, #7 using technology to your advantage. It is not so much a problem of not knowing the technology as one of being selective in the face of overwhelming amounts of knowledge and limited time. I am hoping that this summer's work will help me get a better handle on the technology.

P.S. I'm planning to show my husband the life-long learner's contract. He is retiring next year and we've been talking about what he will do with his time.

Welcome to School Library Learning 2.0 -- we know you will enjoy the summer 2.0 fun.

As to showing your students the tutorial for lifelong learning, that is an excellent idea. After all, teaching students to become lifelong learners is a top goal for schools! That and becoming a full participant in our democratic society.

Best wishes.

Wow...I went to edit my comment and deleted it by mistake. Here it is again:

I am glad you have joined the group. I am about half-way through the tasks, and have learned so much! I expect it will take some careful planning to teach these skills to both teachers and students! Hopefully we can all share ideas about ways to do this.
