On Thursday, I’m heading to ALA in Anaheim to update my overall knowledge of libraries. I’m particularly interested in Koha, the open source ILS which has been in development for a while. It seems to have a pretty cool kid-friendly interface. I’m also attending the AASL Standards for the 21st Century Learner pre-conference which I hope is going to come off as progressive, rather than a redux of Web 2.0 stuff or an update to Information Power. I’m hoping for some new research, forward-thinking planning and assessment, and not some milquetoast overview of “what all students should be requeired to know.”
So I got this click/pop in my knee a few weeks back and it’s really put the kabosh on most of my forms of exercise–walking and biking, mainly. Ironically, we had joined a gym just three days before that and I’ve been hesitant to go to learn about all the fancy equipment.
Went to see my primary care physician, but after a few tests, some questions, he said, basically, “You’re getting older–more clicks and pops.” Hmmm….
