The Longer - Even Cooler - TMI-  Bio:  With Bonus Daring Librarian Cartoon!

Gwyneth A. Jones, aka The Daring Librarian, is a blogger, a Tweeter, an international speaker, a citizen of Social Media, and a resident of Second Life. Gwyneth Jones is a Google Certified Teacher, DEN Star, an elected member of the ISTE Board of Directors, and the author of the award winning Daring Librarian blog.  Jones was named a 2012 Best of the Best Visionary Leader by Teacher Librarian Magazine and is also a 2011 Library Journal  Mover & Shaker, and a Gale/Cengage New Leader.

The Daring Librarian is a digitally shifted Ed Tech teaching Ninja with a passion for re-mix mash-up production, transliteracy, cutting edge librarianship, creative commons, mobile media, graphic design, & being a positive change agent within in her learning communities both geographically and within the æthernets.  Fearlessly daring to take chances, fight the filters, and ignores the negative naysayers, all for our most important customers - our students. 

As an elected member of the board of directors of the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE), Jones passionately represents all PK-12 technology educators. Professionally, Gwyneth is committed to shameless sharing and the NTTI "turn-key" philosophy of peer training, mentoring, building international personal learning networks through school, district, state, national, and online programs.  She is a frequent Keynote and featured speaker at Ed Tech and Library Association conferences around the United States and the world.

Leaving a career in advertising, public relations, and marketing to pursue a career in technology education she now uses effective design and communication skills gained through her experiences in the business world to communicate her love of research and information gathering, reading, and technology with her students, staff, and community. In her spare time, Gwyneth enjoys reading, traveling, digital photography, graphic design, alternative/progressive music, Welsh stuff, buzztime trivia, darts, exploring the Steampunk Aesthetic and writing biographies of herself in the third person. Admittedly, she’s also a goofball, a geek, and ridiculously humble.
