Tell the teachers they have to ‘get it’!

Now that our online newspapers also include social networking tools, it is clearly too late for any teachers to hide in the classroom and pretend that Web 2.0 isn’t here to stay.

I was thrilled to see a while back that the Australian Herald Sun (widest circulation in Australia) added some tag tools.

Now our own Sydney Morning Herald also shows it’s style!

BUT you’ve got to love The Australian!

So teachers – add some new tricks to your toolkit and get the kids involved with networked media services. Teacher Librarians – it’s also time for you  to make sure that you harness the power of these tools to aggregate useful topical information too :-)
