Last night on Women of Web 2, Joyce Valenza, Media Specialist extraordinare shared why she poses this question to her students,”What if Lincoln had used Power Point to deliver the Gettysburg Address.” This hypothetical question may be applied to any historic speech and what a great way to get students using their higher order thinking skills. Joyce calls the Media Center a Libratory, a place for practice, presenting, creating and sharing a center for communication/information sharing. She has over 30 years of experience in education and a Phd. but there is nothing stale about her approach. Here is her Virtual Library providing you with access to some excellent resources.
