Maine Cybrarians - Strong Advocates for MLTI!

Just quick note to thank Teri Caouette, Pam Goucher, Eileen Broderick, and Nancy Grant for graciously serving as guests for our first MLTI Principals webinar of the 2010-2011 school year! We had a good turn out for the 4 PM session with 26 participants from all over the state and even from Arizona! While we had a great conversation about ways principals, school librarians, and technology leaders can collaborate to support best practices around integrating learning and technology the chat pod was perking along as participants shared their insights, ideas, resources, affirmations, questions, and advice! Here’s a small excerpt from the chat window as an example:

Peggy George: did any of you get to see this presentation by David Lankes called Focus on Connection management and not collection management-he made excellent points related to connecting with people and content and curriculum!

And just a reminder, We’ll be gathering more guests on the 4th Tuesday each month at 4:00 PM. We are in the process of planning out the MLTI principals’ webinar topics for the remainder of the year. If you have a topic or two that you think should be taken up just let me know! You can respond by commenting below, or email me at christoy.net@gmail.com. I hope principals make a point of gathering their leadership teams and/or staffs to join in on these conversations, Because as we know, when it comes to school improvement…It’s all about leadership!

Is your school library a quiet storage facility for books gathering dust or a vibrant hub of academic learning characterized by collaboration, research, and problem solving? Principals and Librarians are a powerful team for moving a school toward effective integration of learning and technology!

Library media specialists should be the hub for the wheel that connects 21st century information technology with all the content areas in Maine’s schools. Principals, as the educational leaders in schools, make key decisions that can support, enable, and sustain the core supporting role of the school library program.

Principals and librarians are invited to join in the conversation with our panel of librarians and principals including Teri Caouette from MLTI, Nancy Grant from Penquis Valley High School, Pam Goucher from Freeport Middle School, and Eileen Broderick tech integrator and library media specialist from Rumford Elementary School.
