  • Thing #12 – Reflection
    ​For me, the hit of this year’s course was Bitmoji.  This surprised me because initially that Thing was not even in my top 10.  However when a tangential avatar need arose that Bitmoji could fill, I started reading.  As I mentioned in my blog, I also needed a fresh approach ... read more

  • Thing 12: Final Reflection
    My role as a librarian has drastically changed over the years.  Books and let’s not forget microfiche were once our only source of information. Technology has added another component to our job description. The vast number of resources available are exciting and overwhelming at the same time.  When I attended ... read more

  • Thing 16: Bitmoji Fun
    I love all the information posted!  All the data, articles, tools and so on, but I truly  enjoy creating such as the Post-its, maps, and Jeopardy game. I have to say this “Thing” was so much fun!  Anything hands on is my type of “Thing”.  I am always creating my lessons ... read more

  • Thing 32: Annual Reports – Make Them Matter & Report More Often!
    Annual Reports have become a staple in New Paltz Central School District the past several years.  I spend a great deal of time reviewing goals established in September and determining if they were achieved in June.  If they were not achieved, I reflect and look for methods to help me ... read more

  • Thing #6:  Curation Tools
    ​The number of possibilities in this unit are astounding.  Just the ones listed in Joyce Valenza’s article Curation Situation alone were enough keep me busy for years!  I do use Pinterest and Flipboard personally.  And on the homepage of Follett Destiny, our library management software, I have curated a collection ... read more

  • Thing 43: Google Drawing
    First, I just have to say that I truly enjoy the information posted in each “Thing”, but it is the actual ability to apply the information in the activities that leave a lasting effect.  Polly, the information you post is always supported by a wide range of evidence.   I “click” on ... read more

  • Thing 48: Mapping & Geography Tools
    History has always been a passion of mine, but I had difficulty remembering dates and locations. I have come to realize over the years that the cause of my issue was due to the lack of visualization.  I needed to see a photograph or outline of the location in order to make connections.  I ... read more

  • Thing #16 – Bitmoji Fun
    ​I came to this topic a bit circuitously.  Our district recently rolled out a new teacher website platform and I plan to use it for my Curation Tools activity.  As with most platforms, this site offers a spot for a picture, avatar, etc.  It was ... read more

  • Thing 38: MakerSpace
    I knew that establishing a MakerSpace section in the library would have many benefits.  I am a firm believer that children need to fail in order to learn from their mistakes and build upon those failures.  It is such an important part of the learning process and the most difficult to ... read more
