CLASSROOM – Tech
National Teen Tech Week reminds everyone in the classroom the value of technology in the library. The annual observance challenges students to hone their technology skills by using the digital resources offered by our school and local libraries. For centuries, libraries have served as a central part of every community. And they continue to be an outstanding resource for educators, students, researchers, and neighborhoods. They place technology in the hands of many who would otherwise be without, and they connect people with information across vast distances.
HOW TO OBSERVE
Encourage students to get involved in this week’s project. Let the creativity and learning begin!
Of course, as always, sharing on social media isn’t required; learning is. But if you do, please use #NDCClassroom to share on social media.
THIS WEEK’S PROJECTS
Create a tech scavenger hunt that fits your library. A list of suggestions may be found in the National Teen Tech Week article. However, we’ve supplied a few more.
- Using latitude and longitude and the Dewy Decimal system, create a geocache in the library. Challenge future classes to find it.
- Use a design program to create the ultimate library
- Find ancient languages and bring them to life.
- Solve this maze and then map out a maze of your own using online technology.
