  • Digital Information in the Science Classroom (K-12) April 30, 2014 at the Vermont Science Teachers Annual Conference Co-presented with Linda McSweeney, Librarian. Stowe Middle/High School
    High quality information resources to support Common Core and NGSS Standards can be incredibly time consuming for busy teachers and curating the information can be even more problematic.  In this session we will explore books, e-books, database articles, apps, and web resources with engaging content for multiple age levels in the science classroom. We’ll also look at several online curation tools to keep your resources organized.  We created a website for the Vermont School Library Association of science resources.  Link for the conference.
