Winnie Milner’s session, “Showcasing your Media Center to Show 21st Century Relevance”
Description: We all know that a media center has a lot to offer its patrons; however, getting others to understand its vast offerings and potential is not necessarily easy. This session is devoted to going in-depth in ways to highlight the services you and your facility offer to the students, staff & community. It will showcase a Prezi that I created to educate my school board and my administration. It will also show simple ways to get the word out to students and staff using Facebook, PowerPoint, MS Publisher, QR codes, and basic video editing.
After the session, I hope attendees will learn to: make a media center publicity Prezi for their board of education & administration; make an all out publicity blitz for students and staff about resources using QR, PPTX, Glogster, etc. ; have new ideas to connect with students.
