  • Thing 12: Final Reflection
    I honestly wanted to spend a lot more time this year on this. Actually, I fully intend to save the page and work on more of these over the summer and into next year. I have found this invaluable! One of the favorite parts about librarianship and working with technology ... read more

  • Thing 38: Makerspaces
    Ah the Makerspace, the grace and bane of my existence. I honestly love Makerspaces. They are great places where we can use educational technology for differentiated instruction, teach kids about teachers about upcoming technology trends, and utilize technology for problem solving and logical puzzles. It's a great educational tool, if ... read more

  • Thing 26: Note Taking Tools
    I'm a huge fan of note-taking. My memory is odd, so I like every little hint I can do help myself remember things. Furthermore, as someone who has integrated technology into almost everything (including my farm!), I love to use it to further the almost fruitless attempts to organize my ... read more

  • Thing 12: Final Reflections
    Final reflections...how did it go...what did I learn...  Well, this whole endeavor was quite the challenge for me as I am not very computer savvy, or so I thought.  I surprised myself at how much I already knew and how easy some of the things were to complete.  However, with ... read more

  • Thing 36: Web PresenceOur elementary librarian, Jen, created a website using Google Sites earlier this year, and I've been interested in trying it too. As I began looking at the resources for Thing 36, I found Scotia-Glenville's Google Site and thought it was great. I sent an email to Debbie ... read more

  • Thing 32: Annual Report
    In our library we go at our annual reports from a joint effort.  Sort of.  I collect certain data for the librarians and my coworker collects certain data and then the librarians digest and annotate the information into the report.  We collect stats on Interlibrary loans, circulation within our own ... read more

  • Final Reflection
    Time to reflect on another year of Cool Tools for Schools. My initial goal for this year was to go for breadth rather than depth up in order to provide a collection of resources for my teachers. I did that for a few of the “things” but then I got ... read more

  • Thing 16: Bitmoji Fun
    For my last “thing” it is time for some Bitmoji fun!  I am embarassed to say that, while I get the concept of a Bitmoji I had no idea how popular they were. My kids were quick to inform me that EVERYONE has a Bitmoji. Creating my Bitmoji was fun…but ... read more
