If you're a die-hard Gmail fan like me, these tips will help you if you didn't already know about them. My favorite is the "undo send" feature that you can set up with a time frame - allows you to unsend something within 30 seconds for those moments when you notice the glaring typo AFTER hitting the send key!

Advocating for School Librarians | American Libraries Magazine | Mount Library | Scoop.it

"Yet the promise of libraries is in peril because school libraries are in crisis; a threat to one type of library is a threat to all libraries. School libraries across the country are at a critical point. On one hand, budget and testing pressures have led to decisions to eliminate or de-professionalize school libraries. On the other hand, the increased emphasis on college and career readiness and the integration of technology have opened an unprecedented door to school librarian leadership."

I've find this tool via @Robin Good, it is very powerful.

It is a sort of Skype but you can have channels and you can search in simply way .


Channels created has the integration with the services like Twitter, Dropbox, Google Drive and more.

Slack seems to be one of the best solution for online collaboration with less mail less kilometers Skype chat and always in sync 


I started using this tool with my team and seems they like it a lot! 

Let me know if you start to use this tool and if you like it!

Robin Good's curator insight, November 25, 2013 1:00 PM



Sugarbox is a free web app which allows you to share any web app you are working on with anyone you wish to collaborate with.


To use it, you simply go to the web app, open it and then click on the Sugarbox bookmarklet, and you are ready to invite anyone to co-work with you, in real-time, on that app.


Once you are collaborating with someone you can see their cursor and their name in real time. You can text chat and annotate the screen.


A unique feature also allows you to easily record what's being shown on the screen, including your cursor movements, and can be easily shared with anyone. 


My comment: Excellent resource if you want to collaborate in real-time with someone else on the same app. 


Free to use.


Try it out now: http://www.sugarbox.io/

While this research (and this book) are not specifically focused on school libraries, we are the ideal place in our schools to encompass all six types of learning spaces in one location. We are the learning hubs of our schools after all. :)"

We're hoping to relocate our large group presentation space to a darker area of the library so everyone can SEE what's on the screen! That will give us room for collaborative and small group workspace. Of course, extensive weeding is the first step so we can free up some floor space!
