Perth workshops for Teacher Librarians

James Herring Originally uploaded by CSU Information Studies.

James Herring recently led 2 workshops for teacher librarians in Perth at the invitation of the AISWA Libraries group. The workshops were focused on:

  • the role of the teacher librarian

  • the implications for TLs of the new WACE courses being introduced at year 11/12 in WA schools
  • Advanced searching in Google and other search tools and a look at visual search engines such as Kartoo

  • Web 2.0 and schools

As a follow up to the last session, James constructed a wiki for the participants.

James found Perth to be a very attractive, clean and very green city – not only the beautiful parks surrounding the river but the running/walking and cycling tracks which have been constructed all over the city and out to the beaches – all off the road.
