As many schools are slowly but surely moving to 1:1 or close to it, librarians are discovering that their role is changing. Here is a recent question posed in one of my networking circles, and I find that it is a legitimate concern. The person states the needs here: In the next couple of years, my […]

Just wanted to share the SWVBC if you are curious as to how it works. Bssically we have around a dozen schools who are “member” schools, and we have teens come in on a Google Hangout (a single group joins via a laptop/desktop/ipad/iphone/device of their choosing) to talk about a title. One school acts as […]
The window of opportunity has arrived for the next wave of what used to be called “Google Teacher Academy.” The application is now open for the new and improved program, “Google for Education Certified Innovators.” By far one of the most rewarding experiences of my professional career, I would love to see MANY more librarians […]

The summer learning opportunities I’ve had have my brain just a whirling. SCASL’s Summer Institute (which I missed due to family travel), ISTE 2015 in Philadelphia, and DENSI2015 last week in Washington, DC have given me much to think about and how I can apply it to my own teaching and learning context. From […]
This article written by Karen Yi of the Sun Sentinel has been making rounds amongst my PLN. As many knee jerk and make complaints, my response is what else is new? Testing is just a part of the school atmosphere, and like it or not, we have no control over that. We can hope that […]
Okay, so we’ve been common “crafted.” Wow, a Library Common Craft Video. I can’t decide if I’m happy or sad that it has come to this–needing a video from Common Craft to explain what we do. And in a school setting, it is even much more complex. But yay, at least libraries are getting represented! […]
Day Two began with a session from none other than Super Hero Library Girl Jennifer Lagarde. Plenty of SCASL attendees had already enjoyed her preconference session the day before, and the room was filled with our Librarians wanting so much more. Her session “MacGuyver Librarianship” certainly left us all wanting more. It was a test […]
Being at the #SCASL15 Conference last week, I’m a little late posting it. Here are our current Library March Madness standings.
I’m very excited to start this week. It will be a LONG and enjoyable week. You see Wednesday begins our annual SCASL conference, #SCASL2015. And what’s not to love? Just a few exciting things for me personally: Two presentations, “Flipped Libraries” and “Not Another PowerPoint: Presentation Alternatives” Project Connect Exhibit Hall Grand Opening with Frances […]
