College Library Unit

It's that time of year! Seniors visited the library to learn about the amazing resources they will have available to them at their college library next year.

They also learned how to use some helpful tools for their assignments, including: Canva, Smore, Padlet, Symbaloo, Prezi, Emaze, Screencastify, and others.

The Canva flyer to the right was made by Amber Urban, to advertise the cool features she learned about the Moorpark College Library.

Seniors culminated this week-long unit by creating a Weebly website that will act as a "Personal Learning Space" (PLS) of resources that will help them research and complete homework assignments in college. Our Troubadours will be ready to WOW their professors.

To view one of these websites, click on the link below to view the PLS created by Riana Orf. You can also click on the pic of the flyer (below) that Rebeka Romano used to create her Canva poster.
