In LS5043: Information and Communication Technology, Literacy Matters cohort students evaluated various Web 2.0 tools and developed sample products to show how these tools could be used in their library practice. Note: Their examples were not limited to work with children and families.


From the course syllabus: "This is an individual project. The goals of this Web 2.0 tool evaluation assignment are to access, evaluate, and disseminate information about one particular Web 2.0 tool and create a competencies-aligned example as a model for classmates. You will investigate multiple tools that are new to you and sign up to evaluate one tool. You will complete a template related to the tool, including creating a brief sample product using that tool that aligns with ALA Core Competences or competences from other ALA divisions. You will contribute to a collective resource on a Google Drive doc."


ALA Core Competences:

Foundations of the Profession

1A. The ethics, values, and foundational principles of the library and information profession.

Technical Knowledge and Skills

4D. The principles and techniques necessary to identify and analyze emerging technologies and innovations in order to recognize and implement relevant technological improvements.


The complete Web 2.0 Tool Evaluation assignment sheet is found on Dr. Judi Moreillon's LS5043 course wiki.


Sample Page: Please follow the directions on the sample page.
