Ria Coffey, from St Patrick’s Secondary College in Ballarat, offers her take on last week’s SLAV conference.
‘The Game Changer’ a professional development opportunity hosted by SLAV and featuring the dynamic teacher librarian Dr. Joyce Valenza was held at the MCG on Friday. Valenza over whelmed the audience with her plethora of ideas, innovations, inspirations and motivations for the teacher librarian and all those connected to school libraries. Valenza encouraged her audience to create ‘transliteracy’ opportunities in their school libraries, this being, literature across multiple media. The mind boggled as Valenza then proceeded to offer slide after slide of links and resources that assist in developing connected, collaborating, and communicating school libraries.
Throughout the day twitter ran wild as an online feed was open for discussion of ideas (#slavconf11).
Participants could also contribute to a slideshow of ideas which were then showcased.
All this and much more can be accessed at Joyce’s wikispace.
