RCE Media Center Annual Report
This is the exact goal of our centers in the library: to promote inquiry, creativity, collaboration and community.
Co Teach with Technology
I helped many classes including Dr. Austin's learn to complete online research safely.
I worked with Mrs. Pignataro's class and many others to learn to use storybird to create and publish their own story.
(old picture) I helped multiple classes learn to use Plickers as an assessment.
Many students also have the knowledge to use the green screen along with iMovie to be creative and tell about what they have learned.
Media Crumbs Newsletter
I've also helped multiple schools use canva correctly to make adjustments and templates for the school website. One media specialist came to observe and learn about how our centers are managed in the media center.
I have a section for PL for teachers on my school website. It will direct you here:
I consider our Co-Teach with Technology sessions a form of PL. I help teachers and students activate accounts and learn to use various websites and resources.
Another strategy of mine is to provide basically zero limits on the type of information a child can check out in the library. If a child of any age desires to read about Harry Potter, WWE wrestlers, or ballet - they are allowed to acquire that information. Libraries are all about freedom of information, and I believe that freedom applies to all of our students, regardless of their grade. We circulated 37, 308 items this school year.
I also started the Media Committee and plan to meet more regularly next year to have a better understand of needs within each grade level.
The public library media specialist from Hampton came to talk to all of our students about the Summer Reading Program.
