I've been working on my submission to the Australian government's inquiry into teacher librarians and school libraries. Sometimes it's interesting to see your thoughts in a more graphic form, so I did some playing with Wordle and the above image (click to see it larger) was one result.
I went through several versions, with the same text each time. Interesting to see what conjunctions the Randomize button produced. Tweaked colours, fonts - that Randomize button is evilly addictive!
Submissions to the inquiry close this week.
PS Blogger's playing sillies with images, so it's a tad smaller than I wanted to show you here. But you can go bigger here.
PPS No, I'm not saying it's definitive. But one view. Not planning to include this graphic in my submission, but I thought it would be fun to share.
I called this blog Skerricks because it began as a gathering place for me for the bits and pieces (or skerricks) I wanted to record, remember and use in my work as a teacher librarian. Turns out it's useful for others as well. w00t!

I've been a Teacher Librarian for twentysomething years and a blog is a great way to share the stuff my flypaper mind finds amid the internet jungle. I'm also a year adviser at my school. If you want to reach me, leave a comment.
