As we discussed the different wedges of the Future Ready Librarian Framework and roles we have, I gathered ideas on a piece of paper that really stuck out to me and ones I wanted to put into place in our library.
I created a Google Classroom for my teachers too. This is how I share resources and news with them.
Over the last year, this has become the place for us to share news from the library and technology departments around the school such as author Skype's, new books, special projects, events, and more. We also share lots of resources such as book talks and trailers, Collections by Destiny, blog post links, AEA Resources, and much, much more! The possibilities are endless!
Every time we post in our Library & Technology Google Classroom, the teachers get an alert in their email. If they use the Google Classroom app on their device, they will get these updates pushed out to them too. This will not only mainstream the things we are sharing, it will also be nice to go back and look year and year at what was shared.
I find this one of the most helpful pieces of Google Classroom as I refer teachers to the various Topics all of the time as they are looking for resources and other information. And this year the Topics are really handy as I can go back and reshare the things we shared throughout the first year of our Google Classroom.
For me, Google Classroom has been one tool that truly changes the way I do things as a teacher librarian everyday.
How do you use it within your library and school?
