Apr 09, 2019 jjamison

Librarians and media specialists often don't get enough credit for creating safe spaces that inspire students and make them feel part of a community. Libraries have always been places of innovation, and those of you at their helm have been some of the first to embrace technology. We've created a list that can help you sift through all the tech options out there to stay at the forefront of your craft and to make your learning commons a central hub of information and culture in your school. Once you've checked out these apps, games, and websites, take a look at our Digital Citizenship curriculum for lessons that help students use technology responsibly to learn, create, and participate.
