Library Life: Consumables

Every summer schools across our district begin receiving pallets full of consumable workbooks. The workbooks are learning tools, providing students tangible core subject resources which can be highlighted, underlined, and taken home. 

Because the workbooks are made by different companies, the labeling is not consistent across different subject areas or grades. It is so important to know your resources! It makes sorting boxes a lot faster and easier which means materials are ready for distribution on day 1.

Ed Tech Review: Twitter

Twitter is a great way of building a network and an easy way to share articles, links, and ideas. In the past year or so I have really worked to build my network on Twitter by following as many media specialists, librarians, and libraries as I can find. Now my feed is filed with snippets of real-time library life across the world.

Some groups even hold live chat sessions on various topics which are usually very though provoking and inspiring. All you have to do to participate is answer the question, interact with other participants and use whatever #hashtag they are using. The #hashtags link all conversations which are using the #hashtag.

If you are not on Twitter, I would highly recommend joining! The usability of the site is fairly simple even for novice social media users. And if you do join, remember to follow me @LibCharleen!
