TeachingBooks.net has launched a new blog: News from TeachingBooks.net. Blog articles reveal strategies that assist educators in integrating videos of authors and online audio book recordings into reading and library activities.

Adding an original, personal component to the blog are award-winning authors revealing, through guest posts, their writing process to the educational world. National Book Award recipient Kimberly Willis Holt posted on January 28th, “Tales of the Bossy, Boy-crazy, No Fun Older Sister.”

“Reading blogs is an excellent way for busy educators keep learning and to get quick, refreshing bursts of professional development—just enough to get your creative juices flowing,” reflects TeachingBooks.net’s librarian and Web 2.0 Content Producer Danika Morphew-Tarbuck. “Guest blogging is really popular right now in the Web 2.0 community and I wanted to apply this concept in a way that could help educators connect with favorite authors and meaningful multimedia resources in a new way.”

Holt’s blog posting, as well as other Web 2.0 Tools (including resource rating, comment submission, Twitter, a Facebook fan page and others), are being integrated by TeachingBooks to foster collaboration and community among colleagues who wish to learn together about using multimedia resources in literature studies.

Think Outside the Blog

Web logs are great vehicles for an interactive exchange of ideas between a handful of people, but blogs are not as effective when a large number of people want to collaborate, contribute, and easily find information on a given topic.
