Welcome everyone! I hope you are as excited as I am to begin this learning journey together. We have a lot of fun things ahead of us, and I am really looking forward to learning about some new Web 2.0 tools with you.

About CityLibrariesLearning – discover*play*connect

For an overview of our program, please visit the “About” page on this blog. If you have any questions at all, you can leave a comment on the bottom of this page (or any page on the blog), you can chat to one of the learning champions, or ask the person sitting next to you. We’re all learning and playing together and the more we help each other out, the better our experience will be!

This blog will be the place to visit several times each week to find out the latest learning ‘discovery’. Each discovery will take the form of

  • Discover – you will be invited to read some information, watch a video or listen to an audio file to discover a new Web 2.0 tool or online service
  • Play – you are welcome to spend time playing and exploring the discovery. This may involving signing up or registering with an online service (always free), writing some words or sharing some images, poking, prodding and turning the thing upside down to see how it works! For some of the discoveries, this may be as far as you want to go, but for others you may want to…
  • Connect – this means really engaging and using the new discovery. You may find a work or personal use for it. You are encouraged to stretch your use of the tool as far as you can. This is a good opportunity for those people who may already be familiar with a particular tool or service to explore some of the advanced features.

 Why Learn?

Beacuse it’s what we do as humans! We never stop learning and the best way to learn is in a relaxed, fun and supportive atmosphere. We learn to stay current with changes in our lives. We learn in order to gain personal skills (knitting, rowing, photography etc). We learn to share time with other people who are learning the same thing at the same time.

One of the core values of CityLibraries Townsville is a commitment to Lifelong Learning. As we help our library customers to engage in learning, it’s only fair that we take some time ourselves to engage in learning opportunities.


Welcome to learning from some very special guests
