The LibTech Department is founded on the knowledge that students today need informed and frequent access to technology and explicit instruction on finding, evaluating, and applying information.
Rather than approaching technology and library skills as subjects, they become a daily part of our students learning experience. Students work with iPads or Chromebooks to complete coursework and expand the classroom. Through use in the classroom students gain proficiency in up to date technology and digital information strategies.
LibTech Integrationists support teachers through training, selecting resource collections, and evaluating emerging software. They equip teachers to show students how to access, analyze, and apply information resources for their units of study.
We work with teachers to support students who use assistive technologies such as text-to-speech, dictation, and organizational tools. We provide students with print difficulties access to audiobooks.
