Who this webinar is for

This webinar is for primary, intermediate, and secondary school library teams.

What we'll cover

Join our panel for this webinar focused on digital resources and tools:

  • Digital housekeeping — weeding what you don't need and tidying up your digital trail.
  • Help for struggling readers — great websites with text-to-speech features and video content.
  • Primary sources — what are they, where to find them, how to use them to inspire and inform learning.
  • Fighting fake news — handy tips, books, and links to tools to help combat misinformation.
  • Book trailers — a digital tool to promote reading! How to find great book trailers and use them to promote reading. The best tools for students to make their own.

Bring your favourite digital tool to share and any questions you’d like the panel to tackle.

A celebration of the year that was!

2020 has been a year to remember, with challenges we never anticipated. Despite those, we’re sure there are also some ‘wins’, things you’ve done in your school library this year — big or small! — worthy of celebrating. We’d love to share these during the webinar.

Have you:

  • made a great display
  • set up a new collection
  • revamped space in your library
  • held a great event
  • or achieved something you’re proud of?

Email Lisa Allcott with a note and a photo about your ‘win’ for 2020, and we’ll add them to the celebration!
