Being a connected educator is so important to everyone is today's world.

03:55 - Eileen K
I reconnected on my laptop and now I can see the blackboard. The Ipad wasn't working today. Thanks.

04:19 - @plnaugle (Paula)
For students to be connected learners they have to have a connected educator.

04:19 - Julia Hendricks
Connect not only with staff, but students as well!

04:36 - Susie @shighley #2
Having to depend upon others sometimes for things to happen is culture shock!

04:51 - Julia Hendricks
Facebook has amazing groups for librarians!

05:16 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Find your tribe. I'm so glad I have my PLN on Twitter because they have taught me so much.

05:18 - Peggy George
with every person we connect with it usually leads to other people to connect with :-)

Thanks Sara!

13:47 - Susie laptop
All of these librarian networks are an important part of our profession. Many other positions do not have such great resources

13:48 - Colleen 1
Be YOU! Powerful!

14:17 - Peggy George
we always have a hard time believing that our edu-heroes struggled with feeling overwhelmed too!!!

14:24 - Jen Baker

14:34 - Peggy George
Judy Freeman (Writer, speaker, storyteller)

14:37 - Peggy George

14:43 - Patti Ruffing
yes I totally identify with that feeling of inadequacy

15:01 - Peggy George
this is a gif but unfortunately it doesn't animate in Blackboard Collaborate

15:24 - Peggy George
you'll see it animated in Nikki's slides in the Livebinder :-)

15:47 - Peggy George

16:49 - Peggy George
If you have any questions for Nikki as she goes along please type them in the chat and Lorie will ask her on the mic during the Q/A

17:13 - Peggy George
hahaha!!!! but that's so true!! be YOU but it's not about YOU :-)

17:52 - Sara Westhead 1 #2
My entire dissertation for my MSc was about asking students about their perceived needs/wants for the collection...

18:41 - Peggy George
Do you all understand what it means to empower "teacher voice"?

Just getting into Flipgrid. Hope to use it tons next year.

20:43 - Peggy George
love how he involves his students!!! so powerful!

21:13 - Peggy George
Flipgrid is really interesting! I think the kids will love recording their ideas there :-)

21:34 - Peggy George
that's empowerment!!!

21:34 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Tried to use Flipgrid this past year but unfortunately, it is blocked in my district.

21:57 - Peggy George
so sad Paula. do you know why it's blocked? possibly bandwidth?

22:25 - Peggy George

22:28 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Many social media sites are blocked by my district.

22:38 - Peggy George
Google map for "A Nation Without School Librarians"

22:47 - Patti Ruffing
in some cases, parents who do not give permission for students to be photographed would cause their students not to be able to be in a public video

23:07 - Peggy George
you can see that animated gif in Nikki's slides in the Livebinder :-) love it!!

23:17 - Peggy George

23:33 - Peggy George
so many schools are losing their school librarian!

24:16 - Veronica Morris #2
I'm the only certified librarian in out district

24:19 - Peggy George
we really need to go to the places where they are. Many parents are on Facebook so it's important to reach out to them there

24:39 - Peggy George
that's amazing Veronica! But thank goodness you are there!!!

25:00 - Peggy George
how many of you use Snapchat?

25:16 - Susie laptop
We still get a lot who read an electronic newsletter sent by the school secretary each week. I should have sent more things through them

25:23 - Peggy George
kids aren't really on Twitter either!

25:30 - Sara Westhead 1 #2
No Snapchat - my phone is too old... :(

25:34 - Colleen 1
No Snapchat here! Elementary level

25:50 - Peggy George
good point Colleen!

25:58 - Patti Ruffing
teacher or librarian would have to do all the posting for elementary grades as they are too young to do their own

26:14 - Echelle
So do you post every single day?

26:58 - Peggy George
thanks for asking your questions in the chat! Lorie will ask Nikki during Q/A if she hasn't already answered them.

26:58 - Virginia McGregor
Experiencing the absence of a librarian who was the heart of many great projects now has left a void in a program that supported teachers and curriculum and delighted kids. Never thought that this would ever happen. No more elementary librarians. Job eliminated.

27:34 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Using social media allows schools to "tell their story" to the world. What does your school brand have to say about your school?

27:43 - Peggy George
that breaks my heart Virginia!!

28:18 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Hello Fabiana, we are glad you are here.

28:31 - Peggy George
Welcome Fabiana!!

28:40 - Veronica Morris #2
Yes here too we have 1 elementary library aid that goes to a different school every day!

29:01 - Sara Westhead 1 #2
Are phones allowed in schools in your districts? They are not allowed at any grade here in Bermuda in public schools

29:13 - Peggy George
love the term "Celebrate" That's what promotion and PR is all about!!

29:33 - Raychael
would REMIND work too?

30:03 - Peggy George
yes Raychael! Maybe Nikki will talk about Remind :-)

30:09 - Susie laptop
Hi, Fabiana!

30:34 - Peggy George
Nikki is in a HS so her situation may be different than yours.

31:09 - Susie laptop

31:19 - Peggy George
thanks Susie!!

31:46 - Colleen 1
What platform do you use for your digital portfolio?

31:55 - Raychael
Is that SEESAW?

32:37 - Peggy George
haha! funny image!!

32:56 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Loved using Seesaw this year. It is so easy for the students to put their work into their portfolios.

33:21 - Peggy George
Paula are you using Seesaw for your student blogs?

33:27 - Amy Jones
is Seesaw a free website?

33:48 - Fabiana Casella (Argentina)
Seesaw is amazing

33:57 - Fabiana Casella (Argentina)
I cannot use it though

34:00 - Peggy George
that's always my question when I see an awesome tweet! Did you blog about that? :-)

34:11 - Fabiana Casella (Argentina)
Not allowed to use apps at my school

34:19 - L Straube
is Seesaw more elementary focus? that seems to be where I hear about it

34:25 - Susie laptop
Most people I know who use Seesaw use the free version. Some schools pay for more detail, but you don't have to

34:34 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Yes, it a freemium site. Many teachers use the free part only and are very satisfied with Seesaw.

34:42 - Peggy George
So many awesome librarians to follow!!!

35:10 - Fabiana Casella (Argentina)
Yes, Peggy Hugs! I didn´ greet you & all

35:28 - Patti Ruffing
rationale for student blogging

35:30 - Peggy George
:-) Hugs back Fabiana!

35:39 - Fabiana Casella (Argentina)

35:45 - Peggy George
thanks Patti! I'll add that link to the Livebinder!

Tiffany Whitehead is my buddy here in Louisiana. I remember when she first went to ISTE and met the librarian gurus in person, she was over the mo0n. Now she is considered one of those gurus.

36:21 - Peggy George
not seeing the video Nikki

36:25 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Love that video. :)

37:14 - Peggy George

37:49 - L Straube
Thank you @Paula

38:00 - Peggy George another version :-)

41:17 - Virginia McGregor
It is amazing the many hats and energies that librarians dedicate themselves to.

41:24 - Amy Jones
so where is the library celebration calendar?

41:41 - Julia Hendricks
Yes, I ask students what they are learning, so that I can collaborate with teachers

41:52 - Susie @shighley #2
So true. This webinar would be great for instructors to show people taking courses for their MLS

41:53 - Peggy George

42:19 - Susie @shighley #2
Sometimes my collaborations were made at the lunch table. Find teachers where they are

42:39 - Peggy George
very good advice!!

43:19 - Patti Ruffing
I would like to ask how much time Nikki spends/spent coordinating with classroom teachers for library/curriculum integration...where do you fit in meetings and how often?

44:02 - Peggy George
that is a powerful quote!!!

44:15 - Peggy George
applies to students and teachers!

44:20 - Julia Hendricks
I think it's also important to participate or attend teacher twitter chats, webinars, etc. It shows that you're interested in what they're learning as well, and that you want to be a partner!

44:25 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Love when my Ss bring their Chromebooks to me and say it's not working. After trying a few things we will shut it down and restart. I tell them I don't have magic fingers, they finally learn to do this on their own. :)

45:26 - Peggy George
Nikki is writing a new book!! Watch for it :-) (Coming Oct. 2017: Connected Librarians: Tap Social Media to Enhance Professional Development and Student Learning by Nikki Robertson)

45:36 - Peggy George
so many great tips Nikki!!!!

46:14 - Peggy George
Remind isn't really a portfolio tool is it?

46:39 - L Straube
Good ideas ... my mentor said ... reach out ... and just try ONE new thing ... it definitely snowballs and builds on itself

46:40 - Peggy George
thanks NIkki. That's what I thought.

46:41 - Raychael
No it's texting out

46:49 - Julia Hendricks
Google Classroom!!!

46:50 - @plnaugle (Paula)
I used Remind this year and the parents loved it. Each week I shared a GDoc that had links to all of the things we would be using during the week.

46:52 - Raychael
to a group

46:53 - Peggy George
great advice L Straube!

47:29 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Seesaw can be used at all grade level, but it has really been used the most in elem grades.

47:40 - Peggy George
Paula that's a super way to share your info with parents! Can share much more by putting it on a doc and share it.

47:46 - Julia Hendricks
Look at Shannon Miller's blogs for the calendar of celebrations

47:53 - Raychael
thanks Julie

47:57 - Julia Hendricks
It's a google doc

48:14 - @plnaugle (Paula)
@Peggy, it was like a hyperdoc for my parents.
