I’m Lori June, a life-long lover of books and reading, and a veteran (17 years) school librarian!
Most recently I was the Library Media Specialist and the Technology Coach at Alice Drive Elementary School in Sumter, SC. I’ve been a member of the South Carolina Association of School Librarians since 1985, and I’ve presented at our annual state conference three times and I served a term as Secretary during the 2012-13 school year.
In 2008 I discovered that I’m passionate about the integration of technology into the curriculum! I’ve made it a priority ever since to stay abreast of new research and developments in the area of edtech, and to find innovative ways to infuse my lessons with relevant technology and to provide training for other teachers to do the same. I’ve attended the annual S.C. EdTech Conference for the past ten years (I’ve applied to present this year), and I’ve presented at the S.C. Upstate Technology Conference as well.

About This Blog
This blog was created back in 2008 when I was participating in a program sponsored by the South Carolina Association of School Librarians called 23 Things which is designed to give participants some practice in using various types of Web 2.0 technology that can be used to enhance teaching and learning. This blog began as a record of my experiences with that program, but has expanded to allow me to become part of a broader discussion of literacy, technology use, and best practices in libraries and education.
Since I’m the sort of person who thinks things through by talking them out, I often use my posts as a way to verbalize my thoughts about what’s going on in my school and my library, and to participate in the broader education discussion via social media. Please keep the conversation going by giving me your ideas and opinions through your comments!
