Baker’s Dozen

I’m a little late posting about this, but the Arizona State Library, Archives, and Public Records, along with the Pima County Public Library, have put together a statewide learning 2.0 program called Baker’s Dozen.

It is designed to encourage library staff in Arizona to experiment and learn about the new and emerging technologies and how information is used and created on the Internet today. Baker’s Dozen is designed to be fun, interactive and to stimulate learning. We hope you will share your ideas on how these Web 2.0 tools can be used in your libraries and media centers.

Desired Outcomes:
Library staff members who participate in this self-discovery learning program will:

  • become familiar with a variety of web 2.0 tools and websites and how they are used
  • feel more prepared to help library customers who ask about web 2.0 tools and websites
  • have a better understanding of how libraries might use web 2.0 tools and websites to reach out to library users and non-users”

This is a great way to learn about new Web 2.0 technologies, along with your fellow Arizonans!  Check it out, it looks like fun!  In addition, you can earn up to 13 contact hours in the Technology competency which can be applied to the Library Practitioner Certificate.
