Thing #6 - Learn about Flickr

Tattered Librarians

This was taken at the Beyond The Hype : Web 2.0 Symposium in Brisbane, QLD a couple of weeks ago. A dinner get together in Southbank, led to a visit to the night markets and some temporary tats.

Gemma got the ball rolling wanting a squiggle on her tailbone, and Tanya was next with a cutesie butterfly on her shoulder (those photos will follow!). ... and then the "tattered librarians" went nuts with the infamous barcode tat! What else would we choose???

Thing #2 - 7 1/2 habits of lifelong learners

So what has changed over the last 18months?

Not much!! Obviously, I'm still struggling with "finishing" things. Here I am, starting again after only formally getting up to Thing #11 last time.

I especially appreciate now however, habit # 7 - teach and mentor others, as a good way to reinforce my own learning. I take this not only in the stand up and deliver kind of teaching, but also the sharing and collaboration that happens in the happy library workroom. Quite often, by sharing something that I have found with one or more colleagues, at least one will have a unique way to make use of the find ... or ask something about it to prompt me to investigate further.

This follows to in preparing for conference presentations etc. By going the extra step by making the effort to exhibit your wares, there is a payoff in an incentive to do better, or find our a little more than you normally would, and also be in the position to receive feedback, suggestions or encouragement from peers/colleagues around Australia, and even the world.

Hello Ourimbah!!

Hello Ourimbah team mates! I'm jumping on Ourimbah's Learning 2.0 program a bit late. As you'll see in this blog's archive, I started the Learning 2.0 program a while back when Helene Blowers first rolled it out to PLCMC.

As things go, I never got around to finishing it (although have definitely continued "playing" with all things 2.0!). Now that I'm back hanging with you guys for a bit, and with you all trialling the program for UoN, I thought this was the perfect time to get back on board and finish the 23 things.

But now - I'm off to pick up my flat tyre which is hopefully fixed now!

Happy Valentine's Day to you all x
