August is prime time for PD. Many teachers return refreshed from summer break to begin the new school year working on new or refreshed curriculum with faculty across grade levels and disciplines. This creates a sweet spot for school librarians to collaborate with colleagues and develop curriculum they will co-teach. In this edWebinar, Michelle Luhtala, Library Department Chair, New Canaan High School, CT and colleagues, share strategies for using this time to build instructional partnerships that will last throughout the year and beyond. Digital backpacks, integration with Google, Mackin Groups, Learning Management Systems, Library Management Systems, and curation will be addressed. All librarians are invited to watch this recorded session.
