Learning Curve

It’s true, my darling students at both Midway and Colbert Elementary schools in Mead have had to roll with the learning curve that is inherent in technology. Or, okay, me and technology? As I work with my fellow library media technology teachers to streamline our Ipads, Chromebooks and iMacs to a unified Google platform, there are frozen pages, slow servers, and more than a tiny amount of “winging it” when technology fails to do what is expected to do!

So thank you to all the students for their patience, and for being willing to enjoy my witty banter as I work to fill their minds with new strategies for using technology safely, as well as my enthusiastic selling of current and classic stories I believe will best enhance a meaningful relationship with reading. Thank you to those families who dropped by the Open House at Midway to hear about all the resources available on the district library website. I am attaching a link to an article that explains well the role of libraries and librarians in the emerging digital realm of classroom learning. (click below)
