AZ School Librarian

Reflections on the events and happenings of a new librarian, veteran teacher, and soon to retire educator in Arizona. I've been a music teacher, computer lab teacher (VIC 20, Apple IIe, C-64, MacPlus, and PC), curriculum integration specialist, and am about to add Library Media Specialist to the list. My interests include photography, 4 wheeling (in a Jeep Unlimited), hiking, technology, and renovating my house.

Avid Booth

My thanks to the fine presenters at the Avid Booth at NECC. These great folks took time to show the process of creating a audio podcast, editing with the Audacity software (and using the M-Audio bridge and microphone) publishing and setting up an RSS feed. Then they went the next mile, and demoed the process of creating, publishing and blogging a video podcast. One of my minor goals for learning about at NECC this year, and I learned it for free, was able to ask questions, and ended up with a hat and t-shirt. Great time!

Now I have to go home and play with these ideas - I've got a few projects in mind for the library. How about podcasts for finding certain types of books, checking out a book (let the K-3 kids see it before they come to the library) doing research, taking notes, and so on.
