9/11/15 What Can A LITT Do For You?

LITT stands for "Library Instructional Technology Teacher" and my role is to be an embedded resource at Sunset High School to help us move forward with the Future Ready initiative.  
  • I am a certified School Librarian and technology evangelist!  
  • I love to work with teachers in designing unit plans, locating print and digital resources for students to use.
  • I can offer suggestions of how technology might engage students to impact and deepen their learning.  
So what can a LITT do for you?  Here are a few ideas ...
  1. Invite me to a Learning Team meeting -- especially when you are planning out an instructional unit. I might be able to suggest electronic database resources or offer to help co-teach a technology lesson.
  2. Resources:  I can locate and evaluate print and electronic resources to support your curriculum.  Give me a heads up and the Media Center staff can pull books onto a cart for you or I can peruse websites or our database collections and narrow down resources to match your curriculum.
  3. Tech Help:  Struggling with a tech issues like using Google Docs, building a Google Site or setting up a course in Canvas and you need someone to help you out?  Invite me to sit with you 1:1 and we will work on it together.
  4. #SunsetReads:  Invite me into your classroom to promote the #SunsetReads program.  I can booktalk my favorite YA books, bring along interesting non-fiction titles to match your curriculum or take a #SunsetReads photo for the display.
