Literacy Rotations with a Technology Twist
Dawn French, in collaboration with classroom teachers, has used the basic principles behind Reader’s Workshop and Daily 5 to design literacy rotations with a technology twist for our students. French has received grants to purchase 20 iPod Touches, iPads and Nooks, and with collaborating teachers has incorporated these devices as an integral part of literacy rotations. During a 90 minute reading block, students receive small group and individual instruction, listen to reading, do word work using a variety of apps, read to themselves, work on their writing by responding to literature and writing prompts, and practice and track their own fluency using an iOs voice recorder.  During the presentation, Dawn will share teaching strategies, scheduling information, and specific reading and language apps that we have successfully used with both primary and intermediate students.

Redefining the Learning Conversation

Be Essential - and Convince Others That You Are
The information and technology needs of today's teachers and students are increasing in the digital world and school librarians play an essential role in meeting those needs. Although the impact of today's school librarians on student learning is evident to those closest to the field, it is important that librarians be prepared to advocate for their programs. This interactive session will include practical steps to build knowledge and collaboration, and communicate the value of school library programs.
