All About Makerspaces During A Great #symchat On Twitter This Week!

On Wednesday I had so much fun moderating #symchat with my friends at Symbaloo and others on Twitter.  This is one of my favorite Twitter chats. I was so excited when they asked me to join them.

Every Wednesday at 3:00pm PST, Symbaloo invites all of us to join in engaging and inspiring topics on #symchat.   

You can also check out the archive from our Makerspace #symchat

We hope you join us again next week for another awesome hour of #symchat.  On April 30th, we will be discussing 3D printing and a little more about Makerspaces.  

Let's All Enter Chromville's Narrative & Naming Contest and Join In On The Fun!

I was very excited to share some awesome news from our friends at Chromville!  
They have announced their very first contest for all of our young people to enjoy and enter.

You can read all about Chromville's Narrative & Naming Contest at this link on their website.

Have a wonderful time sharing this with your school community. We can't wait to enter and join in on the fun too.

Thank You, Edmodo and So Many Others, For Sharing Our Stories During National Library Week

This week I was honored to have Edmodo share my story on National Library Workers Day, part of ALA's National Library Week.

I just love how Edmodo and so many other friends are lifting up libraries, librarians, and school libraries throughout the month.  It means the world to me as a librarian, teacher, and advocate for all things with learning and reading.

At the end of this week I am going to share a new project bringing Edmodo and "Banding Together" together.  I can't wait to share and connect children around the world.

Happy National Library Week to all of my friends who work in libraries, classrooms, and communities.  You are making such a difference in the lives of our young people.
