Welcome Back!!

Welcome back LVUSD faculty and staff!

The Media Specialists has been working hard to help the new school year start as smooth as possible. It may be helpful for you to know a few of the tasks we have completed in the last couple of days:

• Imported new students to the Library/Media Center Databases including Alexandria, Textbook Tracker, and Accelerated Reader. (We are working on Reading Counts now)
• Added new teachers to Teacher Place websites, Datawise, and Aeries.
• Uploaded new students into Moodle.

Library/Media Center site visits:
We will resume our Library/Media Center site visits on Tuesdays, starting on September 18th.

This is a time for the Media Specialists to help in the libraries and meet with teachers/staff regarding technology needs. We will also be providing research/library student trainings as well. Schedules will be made with the media clerks at each school.

The Media Specialists are assigned to visit the corresponding schools.

We will resume our training sessions at the end of September. We will send out a schedule of workshops soon.

We encourage all teachers to invite us to grade level or department meetings to work with you in finding ways to integrate technology into lessons, find the resources you need to support your projects, offer database training and answer any tech issues that you may have.

If you haven't already, please subscribe to our blog to hear about latest news and get some great tech tips!

See you on campus!
