  • When you think of the librarian you probably conjure up images of old ladies with buns, bifocals and pursed lips shushing everyone that dares enter. This image no longer applies.
  • Our mission focuses on two topics: teaching information literacy and promoting reading. We do have books, but we also offer multimedia resources like DVDs, CDs, and audiobooks, online databases, and hardware like Flip cameras, Senteo clickers, e-readers, document cameras and more depending on the school.
  • Keith Curry Lance, an educational researcher who has conducted studies in 8 states found that students at schools with good libraries consistently scored from 10 to 20 percent higher on reading and other achievement tests REGARDLESS of the economic and educational levels of the community.
  • The reason I wanted to be here today was to let you know the many ways that your librarians can help you during your first year and beyond. We WANT to collaborate with you. Librarians have a set of standards we are responsible for teaching. When we can tie them in with your curriculum standards it is more meaningful to the students.We can provide you with magazines, online articles, books, professional journals, pathfinders, and online databases that support the topics you teach. We have professional resources like journals, magazines and books about education.We have online and print resources for parents to use.We can help you plan and implement projects that involve technology. We can assist with getting the tools as well as helping you and your students use them.
  • Let us know what you are covering or update your website so that we can tie in our lessons and displays to correspond with your standardsIf you have a big project planned let us know as early as possible. We may need to order more books or we can pull the books and be ready for the students to hit the ground running.If we plan a big reading event or book fair or any program be positive and provide your moral support. Students follow your lead.As you plan keep us in mind so that we can assist your instruction as much as possible.
  • Discus: no password required if on computer with SC IP address, get password from librarian if you are going out of state or using wifi card, smart search databases, Discus stands for Digital Information for SC Users, provides tons of free resources that are already evaluated for educational material, great place to start your own research or research projects for your students, show some of the databasesUnited Streaming: collection of digital resources for educators including videos, images, and content builders like quiz builders, writing prompts, worksheets, and lesson plans Search by subject, grade or STANDARD You can join the Discovery Educator Network to gain access to even more materials
  • These lists are excellent resources for building a class library, staying current in literature for your students, recommending books for students
  • Exploratree offers templates and online creation of graphic organizersDiigo allows you to bookmark web pages, write notes on them, highlight them and share with others, we have a group and your librarian may be interested in creating a group for your school if faculty is interestedPoll everywhere allows you to create surveys that can be answered through text or the webMuseum Box lets students create their own museum display with text, articles, links and pics, (video is blocked here)Glogster allows students to create virtual posters with links, text, images, and audiokWordle and other word cloud generators allow you to create word clouds using text, ex plug in speeches and see what the main idea was or your paper to see what word you overusedBitly allows you to create shortened web addressesStorybird allows students to create their own e-book Survey monkey allows you to create free surveys up to ten questions with 100 responsesSchoolwires has a blogging component for student blogs
  • As a librarian it is our job to help teachers and students navigate through all that the Information Age has to offer. I want to introduce you to the concept of a PLN if you are not familiar.
