Another wonderful group of school librarians got together for a “2.0 Tech Camp” this weekend. This session was a bit shorter than the two held over the summer. Still, we covered a lot of territory and everyone left with plans to put one or more of the tools to work.
We met at the Rensselaerville Institute in Rensselaerville NY. I can’t say enough about what a wonderful meeting space this is. They kept us well fed, very comfortable and well connected. And as usual, the ice cream was free and plentiful!
Thanks to Linda Fox of Capital Region BOCES SLS for organizing the event and to my co-presenter, Ken Peterson, who spoke on social networks and set up a ning.com group for all the tech camp session participants.
As for me, I got to try out Skype for the first time. Not sure why I haven’t done it before, but now I’m hooked. The daughter of one of our librarians was on hand to be our Skype caller and answered everyone’s questions about how she uses Skype. Betsy is in the military and uses Skype to keep in touch with family and friends around the world. Thanks so much to Suzanne and her daughter Betsy for arranging the demo for us.

See you all at the Advanced Tech Camp in the spring!
