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.
