Esa library online handy dandy guide

  1. 1. The Library Landing Page: Contents ESA Library Daily Blog Click here to visit site Everything you need to know about what’s happening in the Library on a daily, or weekly, basis. Library hours and operations, special events, plus special pages dedicated to general information about each of the 6 ESA Arts disciplines. This site also has details about how you can volunteer in the Library. Visit the site to sign up to follow the blog, and/or to receive Library e-newsletters and other alerts. Library and Learning Resources: Information Literacy Support Click here to visit site This site is designed to support students as they learn their way through the steps of the Research and Inquiry Process. The primary content on this site is found in the section sub-titled “ Research @ Your Library.” In addition there is everything you need to know about Books (including the archives for ESA Reads), Poetry (including the Poetry in Voice National Contest), Toronto Public Library Resources, Writing Contests and Publications, and last, but not least, details about how you can volunteer in the Library. White Pine Blog (Forest of Reading) This site is currently archived. Stay tuned for details when the 2015 Forest of Reading programme starts up in the late fall of 2014. Details will be posted on the Library Daily Blog, and sent out via e-mail alert. Subscribe here. Professional Resources Blog (for Teachers and Parents) Click here to visit site This site is designed to support classroom teachers. Major content areas include Academic Honesty Resources for Teachers, Subject Based Curriculum Resources, and Children’s Mental Health Resources. A major focus of this blog will be Educational Technology (EdTech). The intent is to facilitiate greater use of appropriate technology school-wide. This blog will feature, among other things, an App of the Week. If you would like to receive the App of the Week posting directly via e-mail, subscribe here. Etobicoke School of the Arts!

  2. 2. Web Based Classroom Resources Wiki (online resources for students) Click here to visit site This Wiki, hosted at PB Works, is designed to help students find academically acceptable online resources. This grew out of two major weeding projects where lots of resources were removed from the shelves because the information may be found quickly and easily on the internet. This Wiki is organised by subject area. Search by subject and see what resources we're recommending. This site is definitely a work in progress. Digital Literacy Learning Wiki (for students, parents and staff) Click here to visit site This Wiki, hosted at Wikispaces, is designed to help students - and parents and staff - understand the basics of Digital Literacy. Topics covered include Privacy and Digital Ethics, Research Skills (including Academic Honesty), Digital Tools, Social Networking, and Cyberbullying and Safety. This site is also definitely a work in progress. Etobicoke School of the Arts Tumblr: Arts and Literature Blog Click here to visit site This blog is a compendium of interesting tidbits gleaned from my reading and web-surfing. Typical content includes information about new books and movies, theatrical performances, film festivals, public library events, etc. Visit the blog and sign on to follow it. Etobicoke School of the Arts Twitter Account (@ESALibrary) Click here to visit site This Twitter account is an automatic feed from the Arts and Literature Tumblr blog. I make dedicated posts to this Twitter feed periodically, but not very often. This is a good option for people who already Tweet, and/or those who don’t want to have to sign on to follow a blog. Professional Resources Twitter Account (@EnidWray) Click here to visit site I will admit to lurking on this Twitter account. This Twitter account follows key people in the worlds of Educational Theory, Educational Technology, and Library and Information Services. Etobicoke School of the Arts Library Pinterest Page Click here to visit site This Pinterest page features all of the new acquisitions received by the Library as we receive them. Titles are organised in categories, roughly by genre. Listings will be updated on an on-going basis, so check back frequently to see what’s new. Please also drop by the Library periodically to see what books are featured on the New Book Display shelves on the upper level of the Library.
