  • February 2018 Wrap Up & March 2018 TBR
    February 2018 Wrap Up January 2018 had many mediocre or excellent reads. For February, I finished 15 books. That is way more than I thought I would finish. A long drive to work allows me to listen to audio books for about an hour each day.  The Bear and the ... read more

  • Thing 3: Twitter and Other Online Communities
    For this lesson, I wanted to revisit and reflect on my professional use of Twitter. Since the creation of my account, Twitter has been a professional, not a personal, network for me. I’ve always used it to gather and share resources regarding librarianship, education, books and technology. However, I needed ... read more

  • Thing 43: Google Drawings
    This summer I was super excited to take a part in a Google Camp.  I learned some great tricks, but the one I was most excited about was learning to use Google Slides to create posters and other things that I might have done in Microsoft Publisher.  I especially loved ... read more

  • Cool Tools, Thing 26: Note-Taking Tools
    I heard about Google Keep awhile ago and loved the idea of virtual post-it notes instead of physical ones I could lose or misplace. I loved that it synced across all my devices so that I always had the notes no matter where I was. I try to keep it ... read more

  • Thing 20: Creating a Resource Guide
    Step 1: Pick an Audience I would like to target teachers in my building for this project. Teachers are constantly bombarded by emails, countless data and everything else.

  • Cool Tools, Thing 16: Bitmoji Fun
    I love my Bitmojis! I use the chrome extension to add them to my emails, I Snapchat, and text with them. I’ve had entire conversations with friends and co-workers using nothing but Bitmoji but I’ve never thought of using them in school. Which, now that I think about it, is ... read more

  • Cool Tools, Thing 43: Google Drawings
    I have tinkered with Google Draw in the past but always got frustrated and gave up on it before I’d actually finished anything. My frustrations seemed to be twofold: I could never seem to get the sizing right and, to be honest, I didn’t really get the point of Google ... read more

  • Cool Tools, Thing 37: Green Screen Fun
      Since our Boces SLS director (hi Molly!) purchased a “green screen in a backpack” kit this year I thought this would be a fun topic to try out. The first takeaway I gathered from the readings was that this whole green screen thing isn’t nearly as complicated and technical ... read more
