January in the Library
There is a hidden "gem" so scan the whole thing!
There are lots of uses for teaching. It pretty much doubles our collection ... we just have to make the effort to USE it!
As many people as need to may have this one open. Simple text. Search in the online catalog and then choose the "Click for electronic access" link (if you are on campus. At home you'd have to put in a username and password which are located in your Google Drive).
This is just one of several. Limited print copies will go FAST.
Higher level text. Search in the online catalog and then choose the "Click for electronic access" link (if you are on campus. At home you'd have to put in a username and password which are located in your Google Drive).
Mon. Jan. 11 Ms. Oliverson has a library meeting at Vineyard Ranch and will be leaving by 1:45. The library will have to close to students on passes after that time as Mr. Young is only in the library for 15 minutes on Monday afternoons and he will already be taking care of a class at that time.
Thurs., Jan. 14 and Tues. Jan., 19 - Fri., Jan. 22 3d grade will be completing a research project in the library. This means the library will be busy for most of the day (outside of their specials, lunch, and WIN times). If you've read all the way to this point and send Ms. Oliverson an IM by Jan. 19 that says "May the Force be With You" you'll get a special spirit stick in your box ... for you to keep or give away.
Jan. 29th is the first "club" meeting day. K-2, remember that means the library will be closed that afternoon.
Tues, Feb. 2 and Fri. Feb. 5 Ms. Oliverson will be off campus presenting at TCEA. There will not be a sub available on those days so the library will only be open when Mr. Young is not elsewhere.
Please plan ahead! On Fri., Feb. 26 the library will need to close for bookfair set up from 10:30-1. From 1-3 is the second club meeting day where the library is also closed. BOOKFAIR is Mon., Feb. 29 - Fri., Mar. 4.
Certified Staff Digital Citizenship Eduphoria Course
For the past five school years, NEISD students have completed digital citizenship lessons designed to engage, inform and provide healthy strategies as they utilize a vast array of digital resources for both instructional and social means. Last May, data from the Clarity BrightBytes survey revealed on 43% of NEISD teachers feel knowledgeable about creating an online presence. Therefore, Executive Staff has approved the creation of a digital citizenship course to be completed by all certified employees. This 60 minute online course will cover the following topics:
- Professionalism online
- Personal branding
- Password creation and security
- Personal safety
- Intellectual property
A 20-question online quiz will be administered at the conclusion of the course. Employees who do not earn a minimum score of 70% will be allowed to attempt the quiz again until a passing score is earned. All NEISD certified employees (non-hourly) are expected to complete the Digital Citizenship online course and successfully pass a 20-question quiz by April 1, 2016. Please contact the Help Desk at 356-43567 for assistance with course access if needed.
