Ten Tips for School Library Media Specialists

Ten Tips for School Library Media Specialists | DVHS Learning Commons | Scoop.it
Embracing technology will change everything about your school library media program.  When this happens to you, think outside your traditional role and services.
1. Focus on Instruction and Resources, Not Things. The media specialist should be the go-to person for technology in your school, but make sure you’re not only about the “stuff.”  Encourage teachers to think: “What would be the best resource/tool to teach this concept in my classroom?” NOT “I want to use Twitter (or clickers) with my students.  What could I teach to do this?”      
2. Share Ideas and Suggestions. Send out e-mails or tweets updating faculty on the best new resources you’ve found or curriculum connection for their classes. For example:  “Teaching Mythology? Take a photo tour of Rome using Google Maps.  Let me know if I can help!” or “Know you’re teaching cell structure.  Dr. Smith at XYZ University has students who are willing to Skype with Biology classes. I have his contact info.”
