I’m sitting in a spotlight session, being delivered by Joyce Valenza, Information Fluency and Web 2.0. She’s tlaking about how we blend two ideas, info fluency and these new tools. Her confession? She’s actually 1.8. A few of us are 2.0, but most of us are somewhere between 1 and 2. This is clever and useful, but I’d like to figure our how to express this as layers. Web 1 is still here and will nearly always be with us.
She also suggests that we should be bringing our children’s information experiences into the school library. To do that, the library needs to look like their outside the school information experience. I’m not sure what that looks like, but you can’t just say, we want you to talk about your video games, and you can bring your Gameboys into our media center. Joyce’s school would be a great place to visit.
I need to start paying attention. We too much information and web sites.
