Remote Learning Tips
Free Anythink Library Resources
In addition to our school's databases and tech tools that you are free to use on the library website (http://bit.ly/MRHS-LMC-links), Anythink Libraries are also offering free online learning and entertainment subscriptions here: https://bit.ly/3dNdnPa.
Since several of these require a library card number, anyone who doesn’t currently have an Anythink Library card can register for a temporary card number at this link: https://bit.ly/3bIYWtC. Temporary numbers can take up to 24 hours to process and are valid for 30 days (which may be extended). This is a great option for students to access free eBooks, audiobooks, etc through Anythink (more info: https://www.smore.com/g6an0) Please let me know if you have any questions!
A particular resource of note in that list: they just added a subscription to tutor.com, which offers one-on-one academic support across a wide range of subjects and levels, and is free to access with a library card number. The link is at the top of the Education block of resources.
Beyond connecting to online resources, Anythink would also love to be more actively involved in supporting remote learning. Please let me know what might be a good fit for your school. Ideas include:
- curating a list of ebooks targeted for a particular project/assignment
- recording webinars on a particular topic
- doing a joint video chat with a teacher
- hosting a virtual ‘field trip’ or library program as part of remote learning curriculum
Reach out to Jakob Seelig <firstname.lastname@example.org> if you would like to work out details for specific ideas.
