Check It Out! Library Check Out with an iPad

My Students

My students are very lucky ducks! The fifth grade curriculum at my school allows access to iPads, Chromebooks, computer lab, music education, and art lessons. STEM education is also becoming very popular on Friday afternoons in the upper grade classrooms.

I believe fifth grade is the transitional time where students begin to exercise the steps of critical thinking, reasoning, logic, and most importantly, the various ways to problem solve.

I want my students to remember fifth grade as the time they realized education is important, worthwhile, and fun!

The Common Core Standards are striving to give more opportunities for kids to explore their world and find ways to relate to their community and country. Because of this, I'm looking to provide resources to further their knowledge of the world and the growing technology that will be part of their higher education. By helping the students of our school, you will be contributing to their awesomeness!

My Project

Every library has a check out system. By now, all libraries have barcode scanners that ensure all books are tracked when they are checked in or checked out. Imagine an elementary school classroom having this technology! I have an extremely packed bookshelf and multiple storage bins filled with books of all sorts. Each month, one student is assigned a job as a librarian and they are responsible for checking my books out to other students. They also have to ensure the books come back. To do this, they use a clipboard and notebook paper. Some books have gone missing over the years, so I would like to start a system of tracking the books digitally.

I want to implement a digital check out system using an iPad mini and an app called Booksource.

The app allows me to scan the book's barcode and instantly all the information will be saved in the app. I can also add students to the app and manage who is taking home each book. I know my class librarians are going to LOVE doing this job!

With the help of an up-to-date iPad mini, I can quickly scan each book and digitally organize them into my own library filing system. How amazing technology is these days! I hope you can help make my library organization idea come to life!
