Help Me Flip My Library Environment with Mobile Devices!

My Students

From my 14 years as the teacher-librarian, I can say without hesitation that the students at our school are great! They are excited about learning and eager to receive the knowledge that is being offered by the teachers. Compared to their peers, they score very well on standardized tests. We have consistently outperformed the district and other schools with similar demographics.

It has been a pleasure teaching students that value learning, the school library, our resources, and the library lessons that I teach.

Our school library offers that unique space that takes the learning to a new and interesting level. It is a learning hub, where students use innovation to create, engage, collaborate and discover new things.

My Project

Teaching millennials using tablets simplifies teaching, and allows for personalized learning to take place. Instead of students having to sit at a stationary desktop computer, students can now move around with their computer at hand, so the learning is mobile. Students will also be able to access information more quickly with many available graphics, models, and videos to help with understanding.

There is also a plethora of apps available for tablets, which makes learning, creating, discovering, and curating much more impactful relevant, and fun.

Finally, keeping up with the latest technological trend is a learning objective of all 21st century librarians.
