Library Media Specialist
The role of school library media specialists has evolved over the years, especially as a result of the pandemic. They are expected to become more fluent in digital tools, as they collaborate with classroom teachers and often turnkey technology in their schools. The two NYSCATE courses offered will introduce school library media specialists to the following tools: Flipgrid, Canva, Wakelet, Padlet, Buncee, and Book Creator. Not only will they learn how to create with them, but also how they can specifically apply them in the library setting to connect with the learning community and to empower students. Once these skills have been mastered, school library media specialists can modify their final projects to best suit the needs of their students and teachers.
