The ASLA online conference is currently running and I had a paper in it about the role of the teacher librarian. Some interesting discussions on the forum about a range of issues including digital environments and multiliteracies. One of the problems of course about both online and face to face conferences is that they are often fairly costly and the audience is restricted. I hope that there will be a number of summaries of papers and forum discussions in the TL journals so that a wider audience is reached.
On Sunday, in very cold and misty conditions, a long hike on the bike to the Whiteadder Dam which is normally a beautiful setting but not when the haar comes in off the sea. Very big hill to climb about 3K from the dam (or reservoir as it’s also known) and you’re not sure if you’d rather have a really sunny day when you can see the top of the hill, which seems a long way away, or a day like Sunday when you can hardly see where you’re going and you’re thinking that the top MUST be near soon. Ah the joys of cycling.
