  • I created a virtual book discussion using Google Sites as my asynchronous platform. The majority of members came from my district, although we did represent 4 states. We were mostly media specialists, but also included administration, district level staffand retired/on-leave staff (total of 30 members). Satisfied multiple goals: 1) [Personal]-book discussion on a topic of personal interest, 2) [Academic]-requirement for graduation certification internship, and 3) [Professional]- district School Library Media Program initiative for media specialists to develop PLCs to satisfy their own PD.
  • I used my district’s Adobe Connect Webinar room to facilitate same-time, virtual discussion throughout the six weeks. This helped to cement bonds between members so that the discussion threads would be more honest and robust.
  • I leveraged the professional staff and collaborated with the staff development teacher and my co-media specialist in order to facilitate technology training for the staff throughout the school year. We supplemented the face-to-face training with a wiki that grew as more training was conducted. The trainings were also supplemented with 1-1 tutoring and content specific departmental training to focus the technology on a specific curricular area.
