  • Thing 49: Collaborating, Connecting and Sharing
    I enjoyed doing this project as it has been a work in progress for a while.  This is probably one project that is not really work related.  This work in progress had started about a year ago or so when my old dinosaur of a computer finally died and I ... read more

  • Thing 44: Social Reading & Book Stuff
    So this blog ties into the previous blog where I learned how to create a widget.  I started the widget project by signing up for GoodReads.  I love this site and how easy it is to keep track of what I am reading, have read and want to read.  In ... read more

  • Thing 9: Search Tools Ninja
    A Million Short was not working – I will definitely check back, because I love the idea of a chosen number of top search results being removed from a query. Duck Duck Go is going to be my go to search engine.  It’s wonderful that the results won’t be skewed ... read more

  • Thing 15: Augmented & Virtual Reality
    When I started this lesson I had a loose concept of what augmented & virtual reality is I had NO idea how they applied to the classroom. The 10 Minute Teacher Podcast was a great introduction to the topic. I learned so much in 10-minutes! Field trips in Google Cardboard ... read more

  • Thing 13: Screencasting
    I skipped to Thing 13 because screencasting was something that had been on my list to try, but I had not gotten around to. I am the only librarian in a Pre-k-12 school, so there are some tips and tricks that I would love to have recorded for students ready ... read more

  • Thing 11: DIY…my adventures with Google Expeditions and other related stuff
    Over the weekend, I had the chance to play with Google Cardboard and ViewMaster viewers, and go on a couple of Google Expeditions, and it was a lot of fun! It was a little frustrating to get the hang of at first (full disclosure here in a minute), but once ... read more

  • Thing 35: Supporting English Language Learners
    Earlier this year I was able to attend a full day training session on ELLs. This class was enlightening as to the different cultural and educational differences and while I learned a lot there I look forward to learning more about how I can better support students as a Librarian. ... read more
