With the beginning of school and our own administrative staff now endorsing the use of Remind by communicating to our faculty and staff using it, I’ve been sharing its potential use in the classroom as well. We all know (and even lament) how today’s students rely on their devices. So why not capitalize on that reliance […]

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 […]
First off, I’ll share my entire DENSI2015 flickr set: Next I’ll share the #DENSI2015 Group set : Note: Flickr has done away with the ability to share a set(now known as album) in show mode but a little search revealed that one can still add the word “show” to the end of the URL and then […]
Today was filled with lots of connections, sessions, and finally the DENmazing Race. Making connections At our group start-up meeting we were given an Bingo-like sheet that looked more like a DC Metro line map, just in a simpler format. As we network over the next few days, we are to get for each “stop” a signature […]

It all began with a bus tour of “embassy row” where our tour guide shared interesting bits of knowledge about each embassy and other establishments, like the vice president’s residence, the location of Hilary Clinton’s residence, the National Cathedral, […]
Today was a long, long day for me with my travel to DC that started with a 7AM flight, a short layer over, and then arriving finally at 11:15ish. One of the DENLC from Raleigh, NC (Katie Bollinger) provided an airport shuttle service today which was quite helpful. It was nice to not have to […]
Favorite Person? I met up with Sue Levine upon my arrival in Philly. Sue allowed me to room with her at the Home2 Suites right across from the convention center, and it was divine! Almost a full kitchen in our room, Sue especially took advantage, storing all kinds of items to create smoothies, snacks, and […]
I can’t wait for my summer learning opportunities and interactions with current and future friends and PLN members! I will be attending #ISTE15 and #DENSI15. I’ll be sure to share my takeaways. Now to just shake this summer cold! Bah!
Regional Breakfast Day three began with the Regional Breakfast. It was great to see these librarians face to face and to thank them for their hard work acting as a liaison for SCASL Leadership. We enjoyed a myriad of discussion topics while eating, and I even have encouragement from the group to take my Library […]
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 […]
