Peggy Milam Creighton, Ed.D. wrote Perceptions of Web 2.0 Tools as Catalysts for Teacher and Librarian Collaboration: A Case Study as a dissertation for Walden University, 2010, 228 pages. Some of the abstract is:
Scheduling collaborative planning sessions with classroom teachers is a substantial challenge for school librarians. Research indicates that lack of time is a major barrier to collaboration. The purpose of this study was to explore perceptions of Web 2.0 tools as a potential means of overcoming the time barrier to collaboration. Participants were school librarians and classroom teachers from a large suburban school district. Loertscher’s taxonomy and school library 2.0 provided a conceptual framework for the design of this case study.
