  • 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

  • Thing 36 – Web Presence
    For this assignment, I decided to focus on my library's web presence, which is in need of an overhaul. My previous district subscribed to eBoards; although I didn't think I would like this platform, it actually ended up working very well for my library there. This is my second year in ... read more

  • Thing 26 – Note Taking Tools
    I have been an Evernote user for several years now, using it mostly for personal stuff - recipes, menus, bookmarks, etc. I have the app on my phone, and I use it on my desktop, and while it does keep me personally organized I've never really used it at work.What ... read more

    We frequently do activities that are timed and while I know some teachers embed timers in their smartboard presentation I don’t always need a presentation so I was looking for something quick and dirty. Pinterest to the rescue! With a quick Pinterest search I found three options: Online-Stopwatch Super quick ... read more

  • Thing 28: App-palooza
    Apps, Apps, and more apps galore! There are over 2.1 million apps available today on IOS devices¹, and 3.5 million apps available on the Google Play². Researching this topic was so informative, but I found myself getting sucked into the search filters and reading the app developer notes more than anything. ... read more

  • Thing 48: Mapping & Geography Tools
    Google hit a home run when they developed Maps and Earth. We are located in a rural area of upstate New York and many of our students do not travel outside the state, much less the world. They enjoy many of the features that Maps and Earth have to offer. ... read more

  • Thing 16: Bitmoji
    Using a Bitmoji with students? No way. The blog entry, Why and How I Bitmoji in my Classroom, by Khatari makes some interesting points.  Connecting with her students. Everything I know about student engagement, restorative practices, behavior management, and a plethora of other education buzz words drill down to one ... read more

  • Thing 35: Supporting English Language Learners
    The ELLs at Edison High School are some of my favorite students with whom to work. Many of them view education as the privilege it truly is, reminding us all to be thankful for the opportunities we are given. A large portion of the articles I read seemed to be ... read more

  • Thing 50: New AASL Standards
    I must admit, I picked this for my last “thing” for this school year because I’m reading the AASL National School Library Standards and I’m starting to feel “overwhelmed, feel like a deer in the headlights and want to run away to a tropical island” (Farrington). I’m like what I ... read more

  • Thing 26: Note-Taking Tools
    Note-taking preference is so individualized that it is hard to always use the same method for every situation. I feel like when choosing a note-taking app, it has to match your learning style. Are you a auditory, visual or kinesthetic learner? People that are visual learners are not going to ... read more
