About the Program
Baker’s Dozen: Learning 2.0 Arizona is a statewide learning program brought to you by the Arizona State Library, Archives, and Public Records and Pima County Public Library.
This program 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.
This is a fully online self-discovery learning program. We have used many Web 2.0 tools to design this program, including WetPaint, YouTube, Flickr, & Blogger - which we learned as we went. You can learn them, too.
The program will encourage you to take control of your own learning and to utilize your lifelong learning skills through exploration and play.
The Goals of this Program are to:
- Encourage exploration of Web 2.0 and new technologies by library staff in Arizona.
- Provide staff with new tools (that are freely available on the Internet) to better support the role of libraries as places of discovery in our communities.
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
- Please read the Frequently Asked Questions before you start. The FAQs include Instructions!
- Then get started on The 13 Things.
Giving Credit Where Credit is Due
Baker’s Dozen: Learning 2.0 Arizona is based on the Learning 2.0 program designed by Helene Blowers, Technology Director, Public Library of Charlotte & Mecklenburg County that was loosely based upon Stephen Abram's article 43 Things I (or You) Might Want To Do This Year (Information Outlook - February 2006) and the Web site 43 Things. We also used ideas from 23 Things on a Stick, Arlington Heights Memorial Library, and other Library Learning 2.0 programs.
We’d like to thank Arizona State Library, Archives, and Public Records for providing staffing for this program. What would we do without people, after all?
This project was supported with funds granted by the Arizona State Library, Archives and Public Records Agency under the Library Services and Technology Act, which is administered by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
