Books Beyond Borders & Wazzup Wattpad?
We love connecting with other kiddos in schools in other cities and states. Our sister library is Central Middle School of Baton Rouge, Louisiana and we had a great time the other day chatting with them about books! Books Beyond Borders with Google Plus Hangout Our friend & one my librarian mentees, Mrs. Tiffany Whitehead , excitedly emailed that she was being filmed for a local news segment and she wanted to show off our long distance cooperative relationship and highlight cool tech with a Google Plus Hangout! FUN! Amazingly, we were in between testing windows & thanks to my fantastic 7th grade ELA teacher Mrs. Krieger for being spontaneous and jumping on board with this cutting edge conversation! It was lots of fun! Both groups of our kiddos picked out books they loved & wanted to share and did quick book talks. This has been such a banner year for Tiff ! She has been named one of Library Journal’s 2014 Movers & Shakers , an ISTE’s 2014 Emergin
