We had our TBF Read-a-Thon this past weekend and teens helped raise $2300 for TBF! Readers also voted on what the fundraising challenge will be…if teens collectively raise $7777 for TBF 7, I (and participating TBF committee members) will serenade our authors during the opening panel…while wearing prom attire! Since I don’t sing very well and have not worn a prom dress in, um, well…a lot of years…both of these are more than a little frightening to me! But if you guys reach the $ goal, I will do it! So let me know if you are going to do any fundraisers and we will be sure to get the $ raised applied to the total! Bottle/can drives, your own Read-a-Thons…get creative and let us know! As long as teens are involved in some way with the fundraiser, it will count toward the goal. I can also send you some TBF swag to use during your fundraisers of you contact me with your fundraising details.
We are also announcing our TBF Cover Design contest and NEW this year…our TBF T-Shirt Design contest! We are looking for teen artists to help design the cover for the TBF programs this year. The winning design (or designs) will be featured at this year’s TBF. New this year is the T-Shirt Design contest. Submit your designs for the T-Shirts we will sell at TBF 2013! The winning design will be featured on the official TBF shirts for TBF 2013. All of the information is attached.
The Technology Integration Matrix (TIM), produced by the Florida Center for Instructional Technology, College of Education, University of South Florida, has been added to the Web Resources for the essential element of "Educational Technology" on the SLMPE rubric Web site, at http://www.p12.nysed.gov/technology/library/SLMPE_rubric/BuildingtheLearningEnvironment/EducationalTechnology.html
The matrix is available: http://fcit.usf.edu/matrix/matrix.php
TIM illustrates how school librarians can use technology to enhance learning for K-12 students. The TIM incorporates five interdependent characteristics of meaningful learning environments: active, constructive, goal directed (i.e., reflective), authentic, and collaborative and associates five levels of technology integration (i.e., entry, adoption, adaptation, infusion, and transformation) with each of the five characteristics of meaningful learning environments.
