Library Lowdown (week of 2/15/16)
News and Technology from the OCMS library
- If you have a larger class and need more than 15 computers when you bring your classes to the library, book both the library and the library lab. That way, you can have enough computers.
Teaching and Planning with You!
Tech Tool of the Week
So you probably know about TED Talks. But did you know about TEDEd? TEDEd is a educational website run by TED that allows you to browse a database of pre-written lessons and build a lesson plan around any TED Talk video. You can collaborate with other users to create a lesson by adding questions, further information, and guided discussion prompts to videos. Check out this lesson on Henrietta Lacks.
Also, the Randallstown branch offers a great series of programs called Randallsteen, after school homework help, and free meal programs for students age 17 and under. For more information, see the branch's complete calendar of events.
