As most of our students know, this year our district went with a BYOD policy. BYOD, in case you’re not sure, stands for “bring your own device.” In the media center, we are trying to share APPS and websites that help students and teachers integrate more technology into the curriculum despite platform or device.

Recently I stumbled across EduClipper. Seems to be perfect for schools who shy away form social networking tools or whose leaders just aren’t drinking any of the social networking kool-aid. Still in beta I presume, as when I went to sign up, I had to, um, “apply.” Here is the response I got. This past […]
After sharing with our teachers about Pinterest recently at school, I’ve been sending pics of artwork I come across to my art teacher via Pinterest. (Check out Diane Cordell’s pin board on this topic.) Annually we weed books to make room on our crowded shelves and get rid of old, ugly, outdated books. Some fo […]
Did you know there is a tug a war going on?? That’s right, and it’s between libraries vs. publishers. Unfair Game. No Winners. There can be no winners here. This is just another classic example of the new gadgets transforming the industry, but (imho) greed directing it. How is it that for such a long time, […]

My Biggest Surprises: Not a single complaint from students about the inability to download apps Not a single argument about having to stay in the […]
We started allowing students to checkout iPads from the library today. Sigh–still having a hard time wrapping my mind around how they can work like this, especially considering students cannot personalize or download apps. But the excitement is palpable. Today’s task as our students explored–leave a “note” using the note app on the ipad listing […]
K12OnlineConference2011 Copied form the original post: The 2011 K-12 Online Conference theme is “Purposeful Play,” and this year our conference will be entirely asynchronous. This means we will not have any “live events,” but all presentations will be posted online for participants to view and comment on days and at times of their choosing. As […]
This was a plea that came across my Facebook network tonight, and I am torn between laughing and crying. But it does feel oh so good to laugh about it, seriously. Molly Clark (from Syracuse) put it out there for herself and a friend who are taking a class (something related to Syracuse U’s Project Enable.) Some […]
