Chapter 13 of our textbook Technology and the School Library by Odin L. Jurkowski talks about professional development. "Librarians, of all people, understand the need for lifelong learning" (Jurkowski, 2006, p183). I love learning so studying to become a librarian is ideal for me. I remember years ago reading about how some colleges allow senior citizens to audit their classes for free. I remember thinking that I could see myself taking college courses when I was a senior citizen. Talk about lifelong learning. As I am taking my graduate classes now and seeing how much technology there is since I graduated from college, I definitely realize the need to be continually learning about new technology. Jurkowski suggests some good ideas for running a teachers' inservice workshop.
