Where oh where did I stumble upon Doug Johnson? Somewhere in the readings, OzTL_NET perhaps? or a link from another page.

Anyhow, he is the Director of Media and Technology in the Mankato Schools (Minnesota) and a consultant, writer and speaker about school libraries and technology. He is pretty funny, as well as wise, and collects library-related witticisms you will want on your T-shirts.

Here is his Internet Serenity Prayer:
Technologist, grant me…
the Serenity to accept that not everything can be found on the Internet…
the Courage to go to the Library…
and the Wisdom to evaluate the information I do find.

On a more serious note, his rubrics for assessing technology skills for teachers are a great way to find out where you need to improve.

Lots more to explore. Bye.

    That is a long list of T-shirt slogans! Pen, I really like the blog – as a T/L, it is full of useful tidbits for planning and programing.
