Hey Future Ready Admins! Do we have a dedicated place to gather resources? A Collection or Dropbox or Google Drive? We seem to want them and need them but they can be hard to find in FB.
I am here to tell you....We sure do!
Let me show you three things that will be super helpful as we start building our Future Ready Librarian resources.
First, we have the Future Ready Librarian Collection by Destiny.
In this Collection you will find the FRL Google Drive, FRL Padlet, the Future Ready Librarian site and more.
Since I use Collections within my Destiny Discover to keep track of things, the Future Ready Librarian Collection is so handy because all of the other resources are here.
There is a Chrome extension for Adding to Collections, which makes it very quick to add to the Future Ready Librarian Collection.
You will find the Future Ready Librarian Collection here. If you could like to be a collaborator, please let me know and I will add you. I'd love to have you help.
Second, I created a new Future Ready Librarians Resources Padlet to organize all of the amazing resources we are sharing and creating focused around Future Ready Librarians.
With the updates to Padlet in the last few months and the ability to make and organize columns within the Shelf format makes it super handy to share.
I have created several columns including....Connect with Future Ready Librarians, Future Ready Librarians Tools, Future Ready Librarians Events, Future Ready Librarians Presentations and Videos, Future Ready Librarians Articles/Posts and Future Ready Librarians Ideas and Tips.
There is also a column for each of the 10 gears in the Future Ready Librarian framework.
It will be very easy for all of us to add resources to the Padlet.
All you have to do is find the column that your resource fits, scroll down and click on the round circle with a + inside.
You can also add various additions to your note such as a voice message, video, image, document and attachment. I use the attachment feature the most...this is the one in the middle with the circle and + sign.
For this note, I copied the Future Ready Librarians Websites and Blogs Padlet URL, pasted it in the Add an Attachment note on Padlet, clicked the arrow....
and my note was added to...
the Future Ready Librarians Ideas and Tips Column on the Padlet.
It is very easy. You just move over to the right hand side of the Padlet and you will see another place to Add Column.
The columns and notes can be moved around too.
I added the FRL Framework, Padlet, FRL Goal Google Sheets you can copy for your own, FRL Webinar Google Slide presentations,
and a separate Folder for each one of the FRL Gears.
As this grows, we can add more Folders within the Drive too. Please feel free to help with this and add resources too.
You can get to the Future Ready Librarian Google Drive here.
With so many amazing resources being shared, created, celebrated and curated every day, these tools will help us keep track, organize, collaborate and learn as we become the best Future Ready Librarians we can be.
Please gather, share and create Future Ready Librarian resources too.
