Supporting learning and teaching for everyone
Have you wanted to dip your toe into Twitter, but been held back by a lack of know-how? Well now you can jump straight in, with a new How-To Guide created by John Iona. Beautifully simple with clear pictures, you will soon be tweeting away! Have a look in the How To folder in the Box files on the right of the Heart front page, to download your copy now. If you use or reproduce anything in any of the folders, please have the courtesy to acknowledge the librarian who put a lot of hard work into creating these resources. Thank you!
Kate Garnett, school librarian at Elizabeth College in Guernsey, is a very lucky lady! Due to close collaboration with her DT department, she was able to commission an A2 student to make this fabulous iPod Pod for her library. Anyone else have customised furniture built by students – and if so, what? I would love to feature photos on Heart if you have them.
CityRead London is promoting Sebastian Faulk’s book “A Week in December’. All through April there will be special events to link to the various themes in the book. From displays to comic workshops, all of London is taking part. Are you?
Now that you have all had the chance to look at the shortlist, and read some of the books, what do you think? I think that this is a very strong list, with a good mixture for boys and girls, a much more balanced list than for a couple of years. It is also much harder to predict a winner on this list. If you want to take part in a Twitter conversation about the shortlist this year then follow the hashtag #tweetCKG
If you are near enough to London to come to this event, then please book yourself in! It will be a great day of sharing good practice and ideas, sessions on self-advocacy and ebooks – what’s not to enjoy for only £5? Details of the day, plus booking information can be downloaded from the files box to the right in the folder entitled LibMeet 2013. Hope to see you there!
This is a great compettion to enter your students into – it is open to everyone under the age of 19. Fantastic prizes too! For more details see this link: http://www.branfordboaseaward.org.uk/HBWC/HBWC%202013/henriettabranfob.html
I just had to put multiple pictures of this beautiful bunting created by Annabel Jeffery from the King’s School Worcester, for a World Book Day display around her school. I am amazed at the hours and hours of work it must have been for her – but what an amazing result! Students and teachers throughout the school were looking at the bunting and commenting – and no doubt issues have increased as a result! What a fabulous and creative way to celebrate World Book Day! What are you doing – anything innovative and special you would like to share? Please email me at Heart and share your ideas with the world!
