Thanks to a program offered through the CPS Department of Libraries, Clinton library is now the happy home to an Elmo document camera and a projector. With these two new pieces of equipment, I will be able to move instruction throughout the library space rather than being tied to a specific area. The equipment was part of a hardware prize offered to the top 25 finishers among the librarians who participated in PLUS Tech, a 10-session professional learning course that gave me insight into several instructional technologies that I can incorporate into the library program. I consider this a win-win situation, since I will be able to integrate new forms of technology into the projects I plan, all while providing instruction on my new equipment. I already have some great ideas for how to use them with my classes, and I can't wait to get started!
