Student-Centred Technologies

Well, since I am not studying teaching and therefore can't put into practice these ideas of Student-Centred Technologies in the classroom I have been thinking that maybe that does not mean I can't use them at all. Working as a librarian I am constantly trying to think of ways to encourage students to come into the Library and get familar with it. Libraries are not what the once were. The days of sitting down quietly reading to yourself is not all the library has to offer anymore. I have been asked my my manager to create a blog for the library to go on the council website, and I have been thinking more and more about what I can include in these blogs. I think it would be great if I could get some students in here during school holidays and have them create their own stories using their own blogs or creating movies. I know that there are also online story books, and was just thinking that it would be great if I could get the students to create some of those. If only I could find a program in which to do that. Hmmm.....


  1. Hi Cristi

    I don't know if I can give you advice here on what you can do with your blog, but I have been quite specific on who I follow throughout this course for practical application and imaginative use of all the topics we are learning.

    If you'd like to follow the links to the followers on my site, I hope you will be as amazed as I am at the ingenuity of some of these people.

    My blog site address is

    I THINK if you click onto the follower you can end up at their blog. Here's hoping! I AM a digital immigrant.

    Good luck with your studies Cristi.



  2. Dear Christi

    No, have checked it out and you cannot see the blogs that I follow.

    If you'd like to click onto my blog site anyway, I can communicate with you privately if you request the names of the blog sites I am following.

    Sorry about that bum steer,

    Kind regards
