Whooo hoooo! I’m looking forward to attending the South Carolina Association of School Librarians (SCASL) annual conference this week in Columbia, South Carolina! Our theme is Leadership @ Your Library and we have some great speakers lined up including Ann M. Martin, author of Empowering Leadership; and Gail Dickinson, the current president of AASL!
I’m also excited about presenting a session this year titled PUTTING THE “TECH” IN POETIC. I’ll be sharing lots of online poetry resources, as well interactive tools that will inspire students to write and share poetry. We are using Edmodo at the conference this year, but I can’t post my group code online since it’s just for attendees. However, all of my resources can be found in this Poetry LiveBinder which I’ve made public so that you can add it to your own collection of Livebinders and edit it to suit you.
I’m planning to “tweet the conference” using #SCASL14, but sometimes it’s hard to listen to a session and tweet it at the same time, and sometimes the technology just doesn’t cooperate. We’ll see how it goes!
