ITEM Member Looking for Tech Trainers!

Desktop computer clipart - Yellow theme

I am looking for trainers for 2-hour technology classes between June 5-8. Since so many districts are still in school, I am having trouble. If you are available between these dates, or know someone who might be, please let me know, or pass this email along.

Between June 5-8 we schedule 3 two-hour sessions each day (8 – 10AM, 10:15-12:15, 1:00 – 3:00 PM). All teachers in both the Park Rapids and Nevis School Districts are required to take 3 classes, although many take additional classes. Sessions are held in the Park Rapids Century School and in the Nevis High School. We do pay a stipend to teachers.

We are mostly looking for classes that help teachers integrate any type of technology into their classroom. Have an idea? Shoot me an email and we’ll discuss it. 🙂 If you’re interested, but June doesn’t work for you, please note that we have a similar setup in August, from the 21st through the 24th. I will again be looking for instructors for those classes, so if you are interested, please let me know.

Class sizes are typically quite small, typically 5 – 12 in each class, so it’s a great way to do some personalized training. Thanks! Laurie — Laurie Conzemius Park Rapids, Minnesota http://www.LaurieConzemius.com <http://www.laurieconzemius.com/> ISTE Board of Directors lconzemius@gmail.com

Let’s Build Together: Minnesota Librarians Implementing the ACRL Information Literacy Framework

ARLD Day Pre-Conference Workshop

When: 4/27/2017, 1-5pm

Where: Maplewood Public Library, Community Program Room

Description: Unsure about how to move ahead with the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy at your institution? Join the Minnesota Library Association Instruction Roundtable (IRT) for an interactive workshop designed to help you plan the next steps for your instruction program or individual teaching practice. This workshop is an opportunity to learn more about the rationale and philosophy behind the Framework, draw from the frames to develop student learning outcomes and assessment tools, discuss using the Framework for faculty outreach, and find out how other Minnesota librarians are putting the Framework into practice. After the workshop, attendees will be invited to participate in IRT’s ACRL Framework “23 Things” online program, an opportunity to utilize and implement the Framework through readings and activities while sharing your progress with colleagues across Minnesota.
