It’s the Northwest Council of Computer Education annual conference. It’s in Portland, Oregon. Yesterday was the Teacher-Librarian Summit with the theme, “Finding Your Voice”. Good topic as with the changes going on with my job, finding my voice and rebranding the library is an important piece.
One thing I particularly liked was the concept of the library being a stress free zone. And have a place for students to create. I believe the library is the family room of the school so aging a discovery area works.
The day was jammed packed with ideas. Starting with a review of Twitter, how to participate in Twitter Chat, using Twitter for Professional Development.
One section was a “Smackdown” with slides and people having two minutes to share favorite ways to engage students. I loved the format of the Smackdown. It has classroom possibilities.
And the afternoon included viewing different online resources such as Google Classroom, Padlet, along with others. My brain hurt by the day’s end. So much to process.
Tomorrow there will be a variety of sessions. I am looking forward to having my brain challenged.
