31 Days, 31 Lists: Day One – 2016 Great Board Books — @fuseeight A Fuse #8 Production | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it
We kick off our 31 Days, 31 Lists at the lowest age level imaginable. Finding quality board books for babies and toddlers is a challenge. It’s not enough to simply have thick pages. You need to be able to engage the interest and attention of someone who is still developing their visual and auditory processing skills.

Tech Talk: The Ongoing Quest for iPad/iPhone Printing, Or, How I Fell in Love with a Printing App — @TLT16 Teen Librarian Toolbox

Tech Talk: The Ongoing Quest for iPad/iPhone Printing, Or, How I Fell in Love with a Printing App — @TLT16 Teen Librarian Toolbox | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it
At home and in my Teen MakerSpace, I find myself on an endless quest to figure out how to print from a mobile device like a tablet or smart phone. This is particularly true when it comes to Instagram pics. For a while I was quite happy using an app called Print Your Insta, but when Instagram updated the app was no longer compatible. Thus began a new quest for wifi printing options. My quest was arduous, but I managed to find an even better app that opened my world to new possibilities.

5 Publishers That Will Rock Your MakerSpace — @TLT16 Teen Librarian Toolbox | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

In fact, on Thursday, a teen boy came into our Teen MakerSpace for the first time and he was excited about our maker collection; he walked out that evening with 10 books and said we had the best collection of books ever. Today, I am going to share with you the publishers I look to to help build this awesome collection.

When your kid shows interest in a popular phenomenon, usually there’s not much to understand—you just help them turn on the videos, and put the toys on their birthday wish list.
