I recently took on a new position as the media specialist at an elementary school. During the interview process, the administration made it very clear that they wanted to bring not only the space but the entire LMC program into a more tegg-infused realm, which is why I gravitated to this school when selecting a job.
But the task is daunting. They still use the old school print card catalog! During these next few weeks of summer (and BEYOND!), I will be doing my best to slowly bring things up to date. Today was my first day in the space after I was hired and I quickly got to work!
- Weeded out redundant or duplicate titles
- Contacted the companies about digital catalog quotes
- Started brainstorming about possible digital encyclopedias and other resources
- Began curriculum mapping and integrated technology into EVERY lesson–no matter how big or small
The list seems endless because the minute I think of one thing, fifteen others come in its tracks, but it’s exciting! I hope with each small change, the LMC will make a huge transformation. It will be great to see how this following school year goes with every adjustment that’s made, and I look forward to keeping track of them here!
