5 Tips for Getting Started

  • Make sure you have a valid email address, you’ll need it to sign up for many of the services you’ll be testing out during this project.
  • Don’t want to user your regular email address? Sign up for a free Gmail account. It will come in handy!
  • If tools are blocked at your schools, try working on the exercises from home. We’ll try to provide a enough of a variety of tools so this might not be a problem.
  • Don’t stress! You don’t have to read and explore absolutely everything in each of the lessons. Do what you can and have fun!
  • Find out who else is doing the program, ask around your library. Share your successes and ideas with them. And ask them for help when you need it.
  • Reward yourself for completing each lesson. For me that means chocolate. 🙂 YMMV (Your mileage may vary!)

Each of the lessons or “things” will cover one topic. Each topic will include:

  • Introduction & overview of the topic
  • Examples of how it relates to schools & libraries
  • Some selected tech tools to explore
  • Learning activities to complete (there will be basic & more advanced options)
  • More resources to explore
