A community for teacher-librarians and other educators

Here's a VoiceThread that the teacher librarians in my district created to promote the 21st century skills we teach to our teachers, administrators, and board members. We are a district with 13 schools and six teacher librarians. When we created the VoiceThread, we sent out an email to all our district staff and board members. It takes about 5 minutes to watch. We tried to tighten it up a bit, and should make it shorter if we revise it. Feel free to "clone" it for your district and to contact me for help. Here's the link:. What good advocacy efforts can you share? Let's assemble them here.

Apparently when I first posted this discussion item, I failed to insert the link properly. I have fixed that now.
Here is a video to the advocacy collection from the Michigan Media Specialist group:
I send out "From the EHS Library" emails. Since most teachers do not have time to look for some of the cool Internet resources I do it for them. I also try to include websites that can add to their personal life.
See an example
Looks like some great sites and a regular email from the library is an excellent idea.Thanks!
