Each year we participate in each of Library 2.0 and Global Ed Con.
summer we had the opportunity to present the ways we used emerging technologies in the Library at the conference. This was a short session
that we ran with some of the team in El Salvador and myself in Canada.
It was the first time I had done this on a Cell phone and I was happily
surprised that it went so well, considering Melissa, our librarian had
to the change the slides for me as I spoke into my phone from thousands
of miles away.
presentation focused on the ways in which we and our students work on
projects, and activities through clubs and classes that focus on the UN
SDGs. In addition to this it demonstrated the ways in which we attempt
to broaden our student's global perspective, help them grow as global
citizens who can make an impact, no matter how small, their world
locally, while thinking about the global situation.
presentation recording will be available shortly and as soon as I can I
will post it here. For now I have posted the link to the Google Slides
presentation deck here.
very special about this presentation is that it was undertaken by a
large team of both students and teachers, 14 of us in total. Despite a
few last minute technical errors and a few seconds of dead air at times,
while we shuffled speakers around, it ran fairly smoothly and everyone
did an amazing job.
We look forward to running more of these sessions with each new year and sharing them with the world.
