Library Volunteer Program – School Library Journal

girl-holding-booksI wanted to write a little thought to this article:

This article caught my eye right away.  Knowing that in the future it will be unlikely that I will have assistants, this is really a nice way to get students involved, and have some ownership over the library.  Not being in a school currently, there is no way for me to actually implement this idea.  But, I wanted to keep it for reference.  The points that the author makes really struck me, and I know that depending on where I land, this would be a nice goal for the future.

Powtoons – Roles of the Librarian

So, speaking of Powtoons, I had forgotten I created this lovely little presentation on the roles of the school librarian.  I really liked how this turned out.  I really like Powtoons because it is simple to use, and the fact that even with the free version, there is a lot to work with, and doesn’t seem to be a limit to how long it is (such as 30 seconds for some applications).  This was done for the Information Technology in the Media Center course.
