Tech Tuesdays? Collaboration Week?

You name it! I'm game for it!

Tech Tuesdays??? Collaboration Week???

In my position as teacher librarian and now technology integrationist, I've always been interested in getting together to share what is engaging and helpful in our classrooms.

My idea for Tech Tuesdays is a quick meeting after school on Tuesdays to share an app or other uses of our library resources and our technology. At one time we called something like this a Technology Club...but there seemed to be pressure to attend every time to be "part of the club." I like the idea that you could come based on your interest in the topic and your availablility.

My idea for Collaboration Week is to cover a bigger topic in your classroom that would involve some team teaching and a concentration of time to work on a special project that can't be covered in a one shot visit.

Please let me know if either of these are of interest to you or if they seem feasible to you.

Integrating Technology

I am always looking for new ways to integrate technology into the classroom. I also realize how busy classroom teachers are. I want to work with you and for you to tackle a project or two that utilizes the tech that has been place in our classrooms.

Do you have an idea that has been on the back burner that I could help bring to the front burner?

Do you have a lesson or topic that could be made more engaging with technology?

Let's start with a quick discussion and see where it goes!

Let's Learn Smore

For instance... someday we could explore what could be done with Smore.com, emaze presentation tool, coding, Kahoot, the Shadow Puppet app, Destiny and WebPath Express, Electronic Library for Minnesota, Online Encyclopedia Britannica, iPad apps, Chromebook apps, YouTube...and more!
