Applying Technology Tools

I have been playing with new pieces of technology and how it would look from my perspective as a librarian. One of our 6th grade teachers asked me to come and go over the research process with the 6th graders. This was a piece of collaboration on their Famous Scientist Project.

I went to after seeing one of the 1st Grade teachers' site. She assured me that it was easy! It was and I was able to put together a page that works.

On the home page I put buttons with live links on some resources that would be beneficial for home and school.

The 6th grade page is a specific page devoted to using the Big6 approach and applying their assignment. I have linked specific resources to this page that would help them in their research. I used two tools that are fast becoming favorites - Web Poster Wizard part of and that Kathi shared with us Saturday.

The teachers page are a couple of links that I liked and could see as being valuable to others. One of my favorite finds this week is the Fletcher Elementary Web site with links to many educational games. So I started a game page. I would encourage you to go through the games and bookmark the ones you like directly.
