Just the Spark You Needed: A Standards Showcase

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

We want this session to be a spark for you!  Seeing what other people are doing is often that very spark we need to create or tweak something into what will work for our own buildings.  As school media specialists, we are usually the only of our kind and don't get the chance to see what awesome things others are doing.  This session will share successful projects and materials from well-respected Metro area high schools that address media and information literacy skills embedded into the Common Core Standards.  Lesson examples include technology such as Google Forms, LibGuides, Google Sites, Twitter, PicMonkey, Google Maps, YouTube playlists and even a foray into Flipped Education. This session will also be an opportunity for academic librarians to see what skills their future students are being taught.
