The True Adventures of a High School Librarian The True Adventures of a High School Librarian Nikki is a veteran educator, librarian and Instructional Technology Facilitator for James Clemens High School. She is passionate about 1:1 Digital Initiatives, collaboration with other education professionals, and assisting students in becoming well informed, critically thinking digital citizens. The True Adventures of a High School Librarian Saturday, July 23, 2016 The Great Gmail Migration BEGINS! Last year we embraced the wonders of Google Apps for Education (GAFE) with great success. This year we are empowering even more functionality with GAFE by migrating from Outlook to Gmail. Daniel Whitt, Coordinator of Instructional Technology at MCS, pointed out a few reasons this transition will be beneficial for students and teachers: Why We're Excited 1. We can now use the much-requested "Email" function within Google Classroom. This will enable students to email their teachers (and vice-versa) within Google Classroom. 2. We will never have to worry about inbox size again; we have unlimited storage. 3. It is virtually impossible to ever experience a "crash" again. Our email is backed up on Google's servers across a variety of geographic locations. Below is the first Tech Tips of the Week S'more Newsletter from the JCHS Library for the 2016-17 school year. Hopefully these tips will get out JCHS teachers off on the right foot with our Gmail migration. What tips, tricks, advice would YOU suggest?! at 11:25 AM No comments: Email ThisBlogThis!Share to TwitterShare to FacebookShare to Pinterest Labels: #gafe, email, GAFE, gmail, James Clemens High School, Madison City Schools, outlook, Smore Saturday, June 11, 2016 SnapChat & The School Library: A Love Story Library Snapshot Day has been around for years and began as a way to showcase, through pictures, all the amazing things that are happening in our school libraries. I thought, wouldn't it be great to take pictures of all the incredible things happening in the library whenever they happen, not just on a particular day. My Flickr albums go back several years documenting the fun, learning adventures in my libraries. I also shared these pictures out with my PLN via Twitter and Facebook. I even have had Twitter and Facebook accounts for my school library. But, where were the kids? Students just weren't then and aren't now using Twitter or Facebook. It's not their thing. Where on social media are the kids? SnapChat, Instagram & YouTube! George Couros wrote ablog post about SnapChat Stories that peaked my interest in using SnapChat (Stories-Librarian-LOL). So, this past school year, I took the plunge and learned how to use SnapChat. I used it from Day 1 and almost every single day to tell the story of the JCHS Library. I also made sure to download each SnapChat so that I could upload the images to my Flickr account, and also post images to my school Instagram, Facebook and Twitter accounts. Letting kids know that the library has a SnapChat account and getting them to follow the account was important, otherwise anything I posted would just be me talking to myself, thus, meaningless. I used Canva to create a poster that hung in the entrance of the library. (see below) Then I made a "big deal" out of taking pictures with the JCHS_Library SnapChat account, starting with simple selfies, and then screaming animately, "Library Snappy Chat! Follow us!" The kids thought I was also made them curious. My SnapChatting continued with our new MakerSpace, snapping out all the awesomeness happening there. This evolved into students saying, "Ms. Robertson! Come here! SnapChat this!" referring to what they were doing in the MakerSpace. I will never forget the first time I heard one student say to another student, "Yeah. It's on the library SnapChat right here. You should follow them". I have also noticed that more and more educators have been asking, "How are you using Snapchat in your school/library?" I like to think of SnapChat as a way to not only advertise new books or library events, but a place to celebrate students, teachers, and all the wonderful things that are happening in and around the library. Here are a few ways to use SnapChat in your library: Promote new books Advertise library promotions Poem In Your Pocket Banned Books Spotlight new robots, art supplies, Legos, etc in the MakerSpace Showcase student talent music mixing in the MakerSpace impromptu singing Celebrate great co teaching lessons Breakout EDU Digital Portfolios Let followers know what is printing today on the 3D Printer Selfies, groupies, and SnapChat filters! Really, taking SnapChats of everything from a welcome message in the morning, "We are open and ready for business" to and evening snap, "Thanks for the most amazing day!" with pictures of the day throughout.

In fact, I created this "year in review" video (below) using all SnapChat pictures and videos. Below are just a few more pictures from our year with SnapChat. at 6:04 PM No comments: Email ThisBlogThis!Share to TwitterShare to FacebookShare to Pinterest Labels: @JCHS_Library, #iste16, #iste2016, #modelschools, #tlchat, digital citizenship, education, James Clemens High School, NPR, school, school libraries, schools, SnapChat, social media Saturday, May 14, 2016 Feelin' Like the HANG IN THERE Kitten To say that I have felt frazzled this week would be a gross understatement. If social media is any indicator I am not the only educator who is hanging on by a thin, tattered thread. I have been guilty of being absorbed in my own "must be done" tasks to stop, look up, and connect in a meaningful way with students. We (I) need to remember that our students are frazzled too. May is the most volatile month in schools as the stress from the school year comes to a head. The number of fights, arrests, suspensions, and expulsions increase drastically during this time of the school year. It is because of this that we, as educators, despite our own stress, need to be extra vigilant in slowing down, looking up, and truly seeing the students we serve. In my district, Seniors have only 3 days left and there are only seven days left for the rest of us. The pressure of final exams, final projects, the uncertainty of life after high school for our Seniors, combined with the everyday teenage angst, has the stress level among students at a breaking point. In the past two weeks I have had students talk to me about personal struggles that have them on the the verge of full blown emotional breakdowns. One student feels his entire life has fallen apart. The dream he has had for his future since he was 3 years old is no longer a possibility and he is at a loss as to what he is to do with his life now. Another student lost their best friend, the dog that has been their constant companion since they were a toddler. My dog died this week too. We sat in the back of the library and cried together. Another student got less than stellar results back from her college entrance exams AND her parents are kicking her out after graduation. These are just a few of the stories I know. Not all kids will be so obvious and confide in a trusted adult as to the stresses they are under. It's because of this that we need to make a concerted effort to be more aware these last few days- look up, stop grading papers, paste a smile on our faces, and share a smile with our students. Together we will end the year doing a "happy dance"! at 10:46 AM No comments: Email ThisBlogThis!Share to TwitterShare to FacebookShare to Pinterest Labels: end of school, final exams, frazzled, graduation, hang in there, hang in there kitten, James Clemens High School, stress, students, teachers Tuesday, May 10, 2016 How To Finish The Year STRONG in Your School Library: #TLChat Monday, May 9, 2016 The last #TLChat LIVE! of the 2015-2016 season was moderated by the incredible Richard Snyder and Sherry Gick and it was STELLAR! Even though the night was a very sad night for me (we had to send our 15 year old dog to heaven) the creativity of this duo had me laughing despite my tears. If you missed the live chat on Twitter it isn't too late to reflect on the questions presented during the chat below. Thank you Richard & Sherry for stepping up to the plate and moderating a GREAT #TLChat! at 8:49 PM No comments: Email ThisBlogThis!Share to TwitterShare to FacebookShare to Pinterest Labels: #tlchat, #TLChat LIVE!, librarian, librarians, Nurph, Richard Snyder, Sherry Gick Putt Putt, Engineering, and Connecting Schools Mr. Dave Frederick, James Clemens High School Science & Engineering teacher, connected his engineering students with Laura Rotondo's students at Lincoln Sudbury Regional High School in Sudbury, Massachusetts for a collaborative project; creating Putt Putt Golf courses using the engineering software, Inventor. Design teams were formed to include students from both schools. Students used email, Google Drive, and other methods to communicate with their team members to create a final presentation regarding their final Putt Putt Golf design. The project finale took place Monday, May 9th and Tuesday, May 10th as teams presented their projects via Google Hangouts on Air (GHOA). As with any project such as this there were technology snafus but in the end all teams did a great job. Perhaps the biggest takeaway mentioned by each team was the importance of communication and time management, job essential skills. Below are the the two GHOA recording; just be forewarned that you will see "warts" and all. Additionally, there is a slideshow of pictures taken during the presentation phase of this project.

Professional Development offered at my school (James Clemens High School) is something that, believe it or not, I actually look forward to. Our in house PD is lead by our Instructional Partner, Ms. Kristi Combs. Because our school is the "Jets" our professional development sessions have related names. The two main PDs offered are Flight School and Pilot's Lounge. Flight School happens during each planning block usually once a month. Flight school has really opened my eyes about all the new brain research that is out there and the connection to how we learn. Pilot's Lounge highlights teacher leaders and is offered during Refuel Hour on a monthly basis. Unfortunately Refuel Hour is the busiest time in the JCHS Library MakerSpace so I have missed out on some amazing learning opportunities; but not this past week! This past week Ms. Alicia Mendez, JCHS English Teacher, was the teacher leader for the Pilot's Lounge PD in May. Ms. Mendez wanted to do a BreakoutEDU with our staff to help introduce this cool learning tool to those who might not know about it or who have wondered about using it but had questions. Ms. Mendez teamed with me and Kristi Combs and together we formulated a plan. The BreakoutEDU we choose was Time Warp. We got all the locks set, resources printed out and/or created, and game parts hidden around the room per game directions. The day before the Pilot's Lounge the three of us "played" the game. It was a good thing we did this because it helped us to be more prepared to nudge and hint if needed when the real game was played. It also double checked us making sure we had all of our ducks in a row before the big day! The big day came and we decided it would be fun to have the Glee version of Time Warp playing on a loop (thanks to the Magic Action Chrome extension) to greet Pilot's Lounge participants. We started the BreakoutEDU with a few directions and the Time Warp backstory and then set the group loose to "breakout"! It was fun watching our awesome JCHS teachers as they worked together to solve the clues and break the locks! Our staff is super smart so it was no surprise when they "broke out" in under 20 minutes (we forgot to set the timer..LOL!)
