School libraries during covid

Belinda Cameron, Teacher Librarian at Maclean High School  shares what she has been up to during COVID-19, focusing on collaboration

RECREATING OUR LIBRARY COMMUNITY ONLINE: LIBRARY WEBSITE - Designed to support students, families, teachers and capture key areas of the MHS library such as origami, Harry Potter Fandom. Also links into Wellbeing and Carreers websites online, which are located in the library at MHS. Our goal was to represent what we provide for our students, in a connected online space. https://mhsconnectedlearninglibrary.weebly.com/

USING TECHNOLOGY FOR COMMUNICATION: Designing whole school Online COMMUNICATION Padlets.

I worked with several local primary schools to design whole school communication hubs using Padlet.

DELIVERY OF CURRICULUM USING PODCASTING:

Thanks to RODE Microphones offering free podcasting equipment for all NSW high schools, we now have podcasting in the library. Teachers have been recording for language-based lessons, creating voice overs for their power points and video projects. I have been assisting our staff with training in use and file transfers to Google Classroom.

COLLABORATING WITH TEACHERS PRODUCING VIDEOS: I used Adobe Spark to create this video to connect with our school community through humour
