Teacher-Librarians: How Do You Fit In?

This week was the first week of school in my district. We had two days of meetings and professional development. On day two, everyone met with their department for their first meeting. I don't have a department; no library aide; no other adult to share concerns and ideas with. (I work in a junior-senior high school) What is your situation like? Please add your comment below.

Need Calendar Templates? Try This Website

All I needed was a blank Word template for the month of September 2012. I was trying to schedule three business classes for in-class lessons on GoogleDocs, and found WinCalendar for oodles of Word templates.You can choose monthly, weekly, holidays and single month calendars.

CamScanner Turns Your Smartphone into a Scanner and Fax Machine

It's the beginning of the school year, and if your school is like mine, you have already been inundated with loads of papers. (Somehow the notion of saving paper with online PDFs didn't happen here) With schedules, rules and regulations etc. everyone has a folder of new "stuff" which can easily be stored. I chose to scan the documents and sent them to the cloud for storage. What did I use? CamScanner.

CamScanner is an app for iPhone and Android phones, which  enables your phone to scan and fax documents. The free version has commercials and a limit to how many documents you can scan and the paid version eliminates commercials and allows unlimited scanning. If you are going to use the program a lot, I recommend the paid version, since it's only $4.99.
