The purpose of this presentation is to inform, inspire, and offer student-tested resources for other school library media specialists who are included in hybrid, blended, or remote learning. While the primary focus is on how to transform the library learning commons into a virtual hub for teaching and learning, all ideas can be adapted for the traditional brick and mortar building as well.
Participants will identify the different teaching and learning models during the pandemic - remote/distance, hybrid/simultaneous, and traditional/face-to-face.
Participants will curate a robust resource list of ideas, materials, and new PLN members to help them in their hybrid teaching journey.
