Use of students' personal learning devices at school - policies? plans? real world ideas?

Dear all,I'm interested in the way schools manage, or even allow students to use their own digital learning devices e.g. phones, tablets etc.  All stories about schools who have embarked on this pathway would be of interest. Apologies, I posted this as a comment but it really should be a discussion post.  ThanksJennySee More

Interesting ideas for Library Orientation

Dear all,'Down under' we are enjoying our summer holidays, although it has been very wet and quite mild this year.  As the rain pours down, I've started to think about the start of the school year.  Does anyone have exciting ideas to introduce the students, particularly the Year 7s, to our library.  An exciting Library Orientation? I have been thinking along the lines of a scavenger hunt but wondered if there are any 'proven to be fun' ideas out there?  All suggestions will be gratefully…See More

Hi,
I’m the blogger at “J. Aday Kennedy: A Writing Playground”. Every month I focus on a topic to help authors write and promote their writing. In April, the focus will be books and why they’re selected by librarians, and how they’re chosen and used by teachers, and homeschoolers..
I was roaming the TeacherLibrarianNing website and came across you. I think you can give some insight into the types of books that interest students and schools. Would you be willing to be interviewed? If so, email me at author@jadaykennedy.com. I hope I hear from you soon.
Blessings,
The Differently-Abled Children's Writer

Greetings Jenny,

I'm Mike McQueen, teacher librarian and founder of http://www.GettingBoysToRead.com. Like many school districts, we are in a financial crises. Our school board recently proposed to eliminate ALL 20+ middle school teacher librarians and also cut all 90+ elementary schools to half time. Since we are the biggest district in all of Colorado, we worry this will cause other districts to follow suit. We launched an online movement and are going to do our best to put up a good fight. If possible, please visit our Facebook page and "Like" us http://www.facebook.com/SupportSchoolLibraries . Adding a positive comment and sharing with your friends would help our morale as well. The board finalizes the budget soon so your timely support would be greatly appreciated!

Sincerely,

Mike McQueen

Teacher Librarian at McLain HS
