"If you build it, they will come." - Field of Dreams
You've designed a nurturing learning environment, and have developed a dynamic library program, but you still haven't been able to connect with some of your colleagues. Most likely you've been told that these teachers don't have the time, but it could be that they aren't ready to leave their comfort zone. When I was a middle school librarian, I was fortunate that our school had study hall periods, and most 6th graders had study halls built into their schedules. This gave me the opportunity to work with students who wanted to visit the library on their own time. With a flexible middle school schedule, library visitations were with by student choice or scheduled by classroom teachers.
Each kit included a Flipgrid QR code so the students could record their reflections while using the hands-on activity and/or reading the book. In this way, many more students and their teachers learned about the library program and the other activities we had to offer. Here are some suggestions for creating your own interactive mobile STEAM and literacy kits:
Remember...if you build it, they might not come. So, go out to them!
My grandmother passed away from Alzheimer's. Years ago, she left home and was lost for hours before a policeman found her. She didn't understand English. Please record a video about your loved one using Flipgrid,and create a QR code bracelet for them. It could make a difference.
2. Create a grid and a topic for your loved one. By creating a topic, you will be able to record and upload multiple videos. You can hide old videos and update as often as you need to.
3. Allow topic guest access so anyone with the guest code can view videos in the topic. Turn off the "Allow Recording" option.
4. Download the Topic Guest QR code and use this code to create jewelry, zipper pulls, and labels to locate your loved one. You can also share the QR code and the link through email, social media, posters, and flyers.
5. When someone finds your loved one they scan your QR code and will have access to your grid, the topic, and all of the video responses.
