Thankyou, Judith Way

Judith Way has been the manager of Bright Ideas since it began in 2008. 2011 marks the changing of the guard.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of the readers of Bright Ideas for their support and encouragement since the blog began in August 2008.

It is now time to hand the reigns over to a new and exciting blog manager, Rachel Fidock. Rachel has been featured several times on Bright Ideas previously (Google Lit Trips @ Mooroopna SC and Mooroopna SC library) and has been a stand out contributor to our profession.

Rachel was a participant in the 2010 Victorian PLN program, which shows what this type of professional learning can lead to.

All the best to Rachel!

It is a privilege and an honour to be managing the Bright Ideas blog in the footsteps of Judith Way, a leader and fantastic mentor in the teacher librarian profession.

Bright Ideas will continue to encourage teacher librarians and educators to actively engage with ICT, to share tools and experiences, to network on a global scale, and to embrace dynamic teaching and learning opportunities.

In an exciting step forward, Bright Ideas is now being run by SLAV in partnership with the State Library of Victoria (SLV). The SLV has a strong focus on learning for the future, especially in the dynamic environment of information and communication technology. We hope that this collaboration will help the blog to reach more people, increase the breadth and depth of contributions, and provide educators across the the state and the globe with examples of the work of Victorian teacher librarians and schools.

There are exciting times ahead, and I look forward to sharing them with you.

Rachel Fidock.
