The Impact of Blogging & Social Networking on Reading & Writing in the 21st Century

Check out LunchTime Learning #1. It is an archive of the first of a series of formal conversations with media staff about school libraries in the 21st Century. The series, called Lunchtime Learning, focuses on issues of relevance to media staff today and is hosted by Holli Buchter, Assistant Media Coordinator for the St. Vrain Valley School District. Bud Hunt, Instructional Technologist for the district, facilitated the technology and invited others via twitter to join in the conversation. Watch the video and review the Cover It Live transcript of the online participants.

The discussion, which reflects on the impact of blogging and social networking on reading and writing in the 21st century, is from the perspective of middle and high school teacher librarians in the St. Vrain Valley School District in Longmont, Colorado. Comments on Cover IT Live are from inside the district as well as outside.

Key areas of the discussion include:

1. The impact on their students at their two middle schools and one high school;
2. How do we get reading and writing in a format that engages today's students; and
3. How do they, the teacher librarians, adapt their services to meet these needs.

If you are interested in participanting in the Lunchtime Learning #2, subscribe to the blog or watch for up to the minute info on twitter.
