Building Instructional Partnerships....Today's Future Ready Librarian Webinar Recording and Slides

I had the honor of joining six amazing teacher librarians today for the Future Ready Librarian webinar, Building Instructional Partnerships.  
Suzanna Panter, Dawn Baughman and Charmaine Norton from Tacoma Public Schools in Washington and Becky Calzada, Sandy Liptak and Zandra Lopez from Leander Independent School District in Texas joined me as we shared strategies, inspiring stories and lots of tips and resources to use when building instructional partnerships within the school community.  

You will find the video archive above and on the Alliance for Excellent Education here.

You will also find the Google Slides in the window above.  

The links to the resources such as the Future Ready Librarian Collection by Destiny and webinar archives are included in the slides too. 
Librarians, district leaders, and all educators should watch this webinar to learn more about the Future Ready Librarian program and how these librarian leaders embrace and build instructional partnerships to make a difference in their library, school community, and for the students with whom they work everyday. 
Please let us know if you have any questions by using #FutureReadyLibs on Twitter.  
And we hope you join us for the next Future Ready Librarian webinar, Cultivating Community Partnerships, on December 12 at 4:00pm EST.

Games For The Library and Classroom...Check Out This Padlet!

I love the posts on our Future Ready Librarian Facebook Group about games in the library, especially when board games are shared.  

This was an important part of our library and something that everyone can bring to your students and community too.  

With all of the posts and everyone trying to keep track of what is being shared, I created a Padlet tonight that we can collaborate on together.  
Not only did I include Board Games, but I also included a column for Digital Citizenship Games, Library Games, Makerspace Games, Breakout EDU and Online Learning Games.  

We can add more columns too...this is just a start.  

And I just started adding links to the Padlet.  Please go to the Games for the Library and Classroom Padlet to share what your students love too. 

I can't wait to see the ideas and games we come up with!  Oh...and don't forget to ask your students to share too.
