HFM School Library Learning 2.0 'Tech Camp'



  • Google Forms Use Google forms for everything from registering students for field trips to collecting data from partners around the world. Forms can be embedded on web pages for easy access. Data is stored in a Google spreadsheet for use by the form creator.
  • Interesting Ways....  Collections of ideas for using various tech tools in the classroom. TONS of stuff to explore. (via @tombarrett)
  • Zoho Challenge Build quizzes, self scoring.  
  • PollDaddy Create polls and embed them on your web pages. 
  • Doodle Very handy tool for setting up meetings.
  • Readability - turns web pages into distraction free zones! Strips out ads, etc.  
  • Instapaper - No time to read right now? Instapaper it for later.  
  • ifttt – If This Then That 
    • A magic tool that simply takes care of repetitive tasks for you. For example, let it monitor Amazon’s feed of free books and send you an email when there’s a new one. Or if you see something on twitter that catches your eye, fave it and ifttt can send it to your Evernote account for you to check out later. When I post something to delicious, ifttt also posts it to my diigo account, which keeps my bookmarks safely stored in two places. There are thousands of ideas for using ifttt. Spend a few minutes exploring their tools and recipes to see how useful this can be.
    • This handy service lets you show your computer desktop to other people. It’s great for showing someone how to use a library search tool or some other tool. And it’s terrific for helping others troubleshoot a computer problem, just ask them to start a joinme “meeting” and give you control of their desktop. If you don’t want to be the computer troubleshooter for your whole family, don’t tell them about this one! 
    • Curation and productivity. Pick a news source, a list of twitter folks, a twitter hashtag, RSS feeds, etc. Content from those sources become a daily, twice daily or weekly "newspaper" to read online or on the go on a mobile device. 
  •  WorkFlowy  
    • A handy and very simple to-do list that synchronizes between your various devices. 
  • Screenr  
    • Handy tool for recording what you do on your computer screen. Great for doing a quick tutorial for someone, recording a reference session, etc. Video is stored online. Send a link to share the video. Patrons can review what you showed them in the library or you can record a few quick tips to help someone with an online reference question.  
  • and bitly
    • Link shorteners - handy if you need to send out a link that is very long and likely to break in the middle.
