Return to My Roots — App & Site Reviews

Return to My Roots — App & Site Reviews

It’s been a long time since I really dedicated myself to the idea of providing links and reviews to different educational apps and websites that you can use in your library or instruction.  This occurred for a multitude of reasons, namely my growing young family took up a lot of my free time (as they should!) and some volatility in my own employment between moving and finding the right fit in a school district and library.

Fortunately both of these have settled down a great deal and I want to get back into the swing.  I have to admit, I was putting this off a little bit until I attended a great Bureau of Education & Research (BER) Seminar on Monday — “Making the Best use of Technology in Your School Library Program to Support Instruction and Enrich Student Learning” with Deborah Ford.  Because my former district was not too keen on sending me out for seminars, trainings, and workshops, I found that I had missed out a lot on the technology end since leaving Palmyra where my tech side was encouraged in 2013.  Now at Cumberland Regional, where my inner techie again is being encouraged and fed, I feel the ability to grow and thrive and share and learn again.  Frankly, it’s exciting and I need more hours in my day!

While I work through trying and testing the various websites, apps, and tools I was introduced to on Monday (there are so many!!!) I’ll make sure I share them here as I plan and test them out to turnkey to my colleagues here at CRHS.  Thank you BER and Deb Ford for re-kindling this in me!

Thanks so much for hanging in and for your continued support.  I can’t wait to share and hopefully find something that YOU can use and love as your work through your own teaching and planning.

If you ever have any concerns, questions, or comments — plesae never hesitate to contact me!
