    Wiki Experience:
    I began using wikis in 2008 when I was searching for a new, easier way to maintain my library websites. I was tired of submitting all my changes through the Tech Director every time I wanted to change a comma. A wiki was my answer. Now both my library websites are wikis.

    are wikis.
    I soon began using wikis in all sorts of ways, both personal and professional. In 2009, I created a wiki unit for my 6th graders in library class. I began experimenting with what kinds of Web 2.0 tools we could use to make our library lessons creative and relevant. I used my library wikis to showcase student work or create online book displays. In Fall 2010, the Junior High added three sections of a "Love of Literature" class to the 8th grade rotation (music-art-reading) and I was asked to co-teach the classes. The other teacher and I decided to base the class on a wiki (much like my 6th grade unit) which would provide a focus for classwork and discussions. Along with the students, we have had a blast trying new tech tools and making changes in the class as we go along. I love, love, love the ease of using wikis and think that they are an awesome way to add a technology component and get collaboration going in a classroom!

    Prezi is a visual tool for presenting information. I like to refer to it as "Power Point on Steroids!" With a Prezi, a viewer can explore and is not necessarily tied into a linear presentation.
    www.prezi.com
    I don't use this one with younger students because they get easily frustrated. But once the older students 7th-12th learn the ins and outs, they take off with it and it becomes a powerful tool.
    Ways to use Prezi in Library Class:
    Visual booktalks...easy to embed YouTube book trailers, author photos/biographies, etc.

    Make a visual map of a book (Can you imagine the world of Harry Potter as a Prezi?)
    Any way that you would use PowerPoint is also good for Prezi!
