It is my goal to keep an eye out for information, resources, and strategies that teachers students might find informative or useful; and, I’m continually working to compile this information in varied ways to tailor and improve the delivery of resources to meet your needs. I’m currently working on some new exciting initiatives for sharing information, including “Tech Tip Sheets” and “Tech Tip Clips.” More information to come on both of these.
As always, please contact me if you need more specialized resources. Also, If you’d like more information on how to use wikis, social bookmarking, Twitter or Blogs in your practice, or if you already use them, but would like some additional tips on using advanced features, please let me know. I would be thrilled to work with you in whatever way is helpful to you!
Just so you have all this information in one place, I’ve listed some of the resources I’ve compiled below and on my blog.
I think you will be very pleased with the breadth and depth of information provided by Gale, a company that holds the status of an award winning publisher of reference resources. Links to our new Gale databases are now available on the media center webpage. Please see me for the passwords.

GUIDED RESEARCH RESOURCES [PATHFINDERS]
I’m also available to work with you to develop specialty “guided research tools.” These require a bit more planning, but if you have a project that requires students have access to very high level resources to collect data or to use as reference, I would be happy to work with you to develop these tools. I’ve included a few examples below,
