Hi, I am a middle school (gr 5-8) librarian of 20 years. I am interested in knowing about how Edutopia goes about linking content groups together. It seems to me that, especially true for librarians, if we only talk to each other, we are not moving forward. While looking over the Edutopia site, I perused the middle school group - while there I discovered several questions that could easily have been answered by a competent school librarian. Do I need to read all the blogs/groups? How do we get together with those who would benefit from our knowledge? I'd like to collaborate with more teachers - try to stem the tide of those who think that all they need are laptops and classroom collections of Book Club books. Now, Edutopia, what do you do to link educators with librarians?
