Web, Library and Teen Services 2.0 Article

As a high school teacher I am always on the hunt for new ways to stimulate the learning process of my students. These new technological advances have developed new and exciting ways for our children to learn information. Therefore, I found this article informative and interesting. We all know that today's children enjoy computers and have a knowledge of computers that go beyond their parent's. So if we can use these technological tools to teach and inform why not use them in our classrooms. The Library 2.0 could be used in many acedemic fields in developing new and more innovative learning lessons. Podcasting and gaming can reach beyond the standard essay assignment and make it more interactive with the student and their peers. Teen Services 2.0 provides an opportunity for new software and networking systems to be developed with the understanding of teens as the focus. Listening to the needs of teens and adapting tools to meet their needs have an invaluable purpose.


  1. It was great hearing a different point of view from you! Technology really can be a very helpful tool to use and I need to keep reminding myself of that. I think the thought of trying to master all the new things that come out scares me so I decide to be anti-whatever instead. It was good to hear your thoughts :)

  2. I enjoyed this article too! The writer had some great points and i love the thought of 2.0. At times i am very reluctant with some of these technological concepts but this one turned out very positive. I also enjoyed your podcast. Give my best to your son and i look forward to hearing more from you.
