Week 5: Sharing

Welcome to week 5!  We hope you enjoyed the week of playing and catching up last week.  We’re ready to dive back in.  This week we’re going to be focusing on two tools you can use to share with your patrons.  You can find them here or listed on the side bar.

We hope you have a great week!

Catch Up Week!

Now’s your chance to catch up on all the great tutorials we’ve covered so far.  If you haven’t already, now would be a great time to check out the Reading and Teaching sections on our site.  After this week, we’re hitting the home stretch with our last two sections, Sharing and Connecting.  As always, we’re available for questions.  Have a great week!

Learning about Teaching Tools

It looks like we haven’t had anyone blog about the teaching tools yet this week, but that’s ok!  The tools we’re covering about this week can take some time to learn.  We hope you guys are able to find some great ways to use them to your advantage. We definitely look forward to hearing your thoughts.  Next week is a catch up week, so you can use that time to play around with the tools you haven’t had a chance to try out yet.

Have a great weekend, everyone, and enjoy your time to play next week!

Week 3: Teaching

Welcome to Week 3 of Create + 8. We have four participants so far and you all are going a great job!  Keep up the good work.  This week we’re going to be learning about some great tools that can help you create information and teach your patrons.  You can access the Week 3 modules here or find them in the side bar.

Remember, if you need anything, just ask.  We love to help!

Just Getting Started

Thanks to Jennifer for providing feedback on the Week 2 modules!  She’s not into Kindles, and that’s okay!  We look forward to reading more of your blog entries soon.   But no pressure, this program is designed for you to work at your own pace.
Next week we’re moving on to the Teaching section which features some nifty tools for offering information literacy instruction online.

Have a great weekend!

Week 2: Reading

Greetings everyone!

Welcome to Week 2 of Create + 8.  Your blogs are looking great, by the way!  In Week 2 we really dive-in to the program.  We’ll be learning about iPads and Kindles, and reading is just the beginning.  There’s a lot of great information to explore this week, so let’s get started.   You can access the Week 2 modules here or find them in the side bar.

Have a great week everyone!  And don’t hesitate to ask us questions.  We love questions!

Jump Right In

We hope the blogging module is going great for everyone. We have our first two participant blogs completed.  Great job Jennifer and Guinevere!  Way to jump right in.  We’re all looking forward to seeing what the rest of you come up with, too.

We have a few more days before we move on to the next module.  Don’t worry if you get a bit behind.  We’ve built in a couple of catch up weeks if you need them.  Just work through the week at whatever pace you need.  And have fun!

Remember, if you have any questions or comments for us, we’d love to hear them.
