I just got out of a packed session about library tools where five librarians shared their favorite, mostly free, online resources. And luckily for everyone who can’t attend NECC—and for those who were turned away because the session was over capacity—they’ve put that information up on a wiki for everyone to see and contribute to.
Many of the librarians focused on online tools that facilitate digital storytelling, such as VoiceThread, which students can use to record their stories, and Bitstrips, which allows students to create their own comics. There are also resources on information fluency, which include search tools, information literacy resources, and Internet safety guidelines, as well as a place on the wiki for people from the audience to add their own resources.
What they’ve collected is a great pool of resources for both librarians and teachers. Spend a few minutes clicking through to find out more.
