Today Erica put out new books for students and they browsed and selected as though they were at a retail book store. Love those new books!
I worked on plans for a professional development session with student teachers. School libraries and librarians can be great allies and guides for new teachers and I want to share all of the benefits of teacher/librarian collaboration. Here's a view of my Smore invitation:
Exciting technology news for Dorman: 15 iPads were donated to the school and the library will oversee the management of them. Classes can check them out for instructional use and projects. Melanie showed me how to control and manage apps and restrict unauthorized downloads. 1:1 programs are popping up all over our state and my home district will roll out iPads for 3rd-5th grade this month. I welcome every opportunity I have to learn more about device management and how to best utilize iPads as part of student instruction and to allow students to create digital products.
