One thing I have learned to do is to lean on others, and not try to do everything myself. I love technology, and I could sit, literally, for hours in front of my computer, looking for techy things to do with my class. However, having a husband and a child who would like some of my time, it is not possible. (Well, at least not until I’m off the school year.)
Anyway, I have fallen in love with Cybraryman, educationally in love, of course. I find what he does absolutely amazing! I know people probably wonder where he finds the time to do what he does. Personally, I don’t care, as long as he keeps doing it. 🙂 He chooses a subject, most tech related, but not just limited to tech stuff. He then proceeds to develop a list, a very long list, of links that correlate with that subject. I mean, can you ask for anything more? It’s a one-stop shopping list!
I conducted a workshop on wonderful websites. Unfortunately, because I teach 5th grade, I didn’t have too many Primary education sites. I made sure I included the Cybraryman Primary Education site on the Jog the Web I shared with the staff. The K -2 teachers did not visit any of the other sites I had listed, they stayed on his site during the entire workshop. He’s that good!
At this point, you might be thinking, did he pay her to say all these things? Nah! I follow him on Twitter, and every time he posts a link, I am on it ! ( http://twitter.com/#!/cybraryman1). He has so many sites, I decided to create a Cybraryman Livebinder of his sites. All Cybraryman, in one place. As he creates them, I will add them. With all that we have to do, it’s wonderful to know there is someone out there willing to make our job easier. Thanks Cybraryman!
