My goal this year was to write up a blog post at the end of each week highlighting the activities at The Library@HHS. Oh well!
Our BIG activity these past two weeks at The Library@HHS has been Library Orientation with the incoming 9th graders. For the last 8 years I have done Library Orientations using a fun scavenger hunt activity (http://www.nikkidrobertson.com/2012/08/library-orientation-scavenger-hunt-2012.html). This method worked well in a block schedule and in schools not implementing a 1:1 program.
This year I am at a brand new school that operates on an eight period system and just implemented a 1:1 iPad initiative school wide. Our focus with Library Orientation focused on assisting students in setting up important apps to make printing, searching the library catalog, and checking out our eBooks a smooth process.
