I've set up a mini lab we can use for teacher

training sessions. A schedule is included.

The purpose is to show teachers how to create a wiki

then use the wiki as an organizational tool for 

the classroom technology integration lessons/tools.


I've also created a wiki for our students and teachers

that can be used to learn library skills, recommend

books and learn to use some of the Web 2.0 tools. I

use this wiki for some of my library lessons and

have students log into it when they need a refresher.


The last link is our library webpage. This has all of

the links to our databases and other online resources.

I also use this for some of my lessons.
