Library & Ed Tech Blogs to Follow

This is where I am collecting the blogs I will discuss during a professional development for teacher librarians.

A Wrinkle in Tech

Posted by Collette J. in Library Space, Reflections. Tags:back to school, budget, decorating, first day, library management, library space, orientation With the first day of school rapidly approaching, the most stressful "getting ready" tasks for me are 1.) transform our library's sterile, white concrete-block walls into something cozy and inviting, and 2.)

Risking Failure

I kind of forgot that last week had a Friday in it...but here we are again with Found Friday! Cari from Library Learners and Jess from Mrs. Lodge's Library and I are bringing you library centers ideas we've found on Pinterest and blogs.

library learners - at the Centered School Library

Is your school year off to a great start? I hope so! I love to get things in our school library organized for the new year, and this year, I carried that a step further. For Tech Tuesday, I'll show you a fun way to organize your computer desktop!

Technology is Loose in the Library!!

This year, I welcomed back our students with a theme -Images of a New Year!! For a while now, I have been looking for an opportunity for students to learn more about the images that fill the world around us! (file formats and styles!!)

Lessons from a Laughing Librarian

Every librarian has probably gotten the questions, "Where are the 'good books'?" or "Do you have any 'good book'?" from their students. But last night on Facebook, one of my TEACHERS posted "anyone have a good book to lend? I need something to read while my kids read each night!"

Blog - Mrs Lodge's Library

I hope everyone is having a smooth start to their school years! The end of summer was a whirlwind for me - I traveled a bit, took a week-long Responsive Classroom course, was a bridesmaid in a fellow librarian's wedding, and got my library ready to go.

Ms. Yingling Reads

Have to say that while my students LOVE books about people with problems, they don't love "quirky". Adults seem to love characters that are far outside of the realm of everyday, but second to "nothing happens", "The characters were weird" is probably the biggest complaint I hear!

Free Technology for Teachers

Cross-posted from one of my other blogs, Piano Maestro (formerly known as Piano Mania) is a neat iPad app from Joy Tunes. The new Piano Maestro app offers lessons on playing the piano. Students place their iPads on their pianos or electronic keyboards to view the lesson as they play along.

Try Curiosity!

When students choose their titles, I try to remember what they've selected and touch base with them afterward. Sometimes they seem a bit unsure of their choice, so I ask them to read the first two chapters and meet in the morning to confirm that it's the right book.

The Nonfiction Detectives

I enjoyed the inspirational quotes at the beginning of each chapter. I think teens who are interested in creating an organization or project to help others will find this book really helpful. Thompson breaks it down into smaller, manageable steps while helping teens stay focused on their goals.

Zig Zagging - Through Education & Technology

I've missed blogging! It's half way through September and this is my first post! Life has been so busy, both school and personal, but I'm excited to share my 100th post today! I guess you could say I'm making my mark! Today we had a wonderful time celebrating International Dot Day.
