Digital Storytelling Collaboration
We have 7 libraries in our library system, all of which have robust early literacy programs and experienced children’s librarians. It’s a big district, though, and children’s staff only gets together once a year (the managers get together monthly). So the task has been put to me to investigate ways to enable collaboration among all of our children’s librarians. I had already begun eliciting input from our children’s staff about how they use music in their programs, and I’ve got a running list of apps I’m going to download, so I made it a little more official and added some forms so staff can submit suggestions directly. Check out the Digital Storytelling Toolkit to see what it looks like. Anyone is welcome to recommend must-have music or apps for storytime!
