Welcome to the Learning 2.0 program & blog. Chances are if you've found your way here you're either:
a. an SJPL or SJSU employee who is participating in the Learning 2.0 Challenge.
b. interested in learning about and playing around with some new Web 2.0 tools that will help you expand your information literacy toolbox.
Either way… we’re glad you're here!! Discovery has never been so much fun ...
Learning 2.0 is online learning program that encourages you to learn more about emerging technologies on the web that are changing the way people, libraries and society access information and communicate with each other. The content for this self-discovery program was borrowed from the Learning 2.0 program designed by Helene Blowers, the Technology Director of the Public Library of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County. Learning 2.0 has been enthusiastically promoted at CLA, Internet Librarian and other library conferences. Libraries across the country are taking the opportunity to modify the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Learning 2.0 program and to share it with their own staffs.
Over the course of the next 9 weeks, this website will highlight “23 Things” and discovery exercises to help you become familiar with blogging, RSS news feeds, tagging, wikis, podcasting, online applications, and video and image hosting sites.
To familiarize yourself with this project, be sure to read the About page. The FAQs should answer most of your questions about this program. We recommend that you subscribe to our RSS feed as well.
So fasten your seat belts, grab your mouse and get ready for a discovery adventure… and remember it's OK to play in the library and have fun!
