Thing 23 LibGuides


Have you ever tried a new “tool” and you just couldn’t wrap your pea-brained head around it? Couldn’t make it work? Couldn’t figure out how to use it? That was LibGuides for me. Too many options I guess. I finally get it. I made resource guides for 5th and 6th grade. There were websites and interactive sites I’d found and really liked but usually after the teacher had read the book. By creating these guides, I have them ready for next year and can simply refer my teachers to them. Alternatively, if teachers are too bogged down by a scripted curriculum, I can use the sources in library. I have been putting off using various tools such as Quozia simply because the logistics of students saving, sharing with me, and my having a place to upload and present was too complicated for a 30 minute class. My school uses Google docs, and it is much easier to share and now that I finally understand how LibGuides work, I can have an actual place to present online-created work.
