Off we go…
I just love the start of the year – it’s hectic, it’s crazy, and it’s wonderful.
February is a passing parade of technology and library orientations, of teachers needing resources and services yesterday, and conversations with students about what they read over the holidays and what to read next.
As we start the new year, here are a few websites that I continue to find useful for information about reading and digital technologies:
Common Sense Media
Digital Technologies Hub
National Library of New Zealand
If you haven’t been accessing Margaret Merga’s compelling and copious research regarding school libraries, the role of teacher librarians, and the state of reading amongst “tweens and teens,” do make it a priority for this term. Also consider networking with other NSW teacher librarians on the Facebook group NSW School Library Matters. This group is an incredibly welcoming, knowledgeable and collaborative group who can help with almost any request. It’s a fabulous arena for professional learning.
