Podcast: Camilla Elliott and e-books plus

EdTech Weekly #169 this week featured Camilla Elliott. Camilla is a TL here in Victoria and has been a marvellous source of inspiration and assistance to many TL’s in Victoria and beyond. Camilla might be better known to many as edubeacon.

The podcast discussion lasted almost 60 minutes but some very interesting points were discussed. Topics touched on included education today – in Victoria and some other parts of the world, e-books in general and then Camilla talked about a few particular examples of enhancing reading by using various digital resources eg. Google lit trips and Google treks. There are also links on the site to some of the resources she mentions. The discussion is worth listening to. As I am looking how our school library makes use of e-books, e-texts and supporting material there are many points that ring true and many ideas that come to minds that can be built upon. It is a challenging but also exciting time for school libraries and more  discussions like this are needed.
