Thing 15 Collaboration
I agree with the idea that Teacher/media specialist collaboration gives students the best of both worlds-subject specialists combined with research and information specialists.I have been working with my school building media specialist, Bob Pederson, since the beginning of Fall till now, and I will continue to do more with him .Both of us helped/guided students to do work in the computer lab delegently. Our students seemed to do well and love their work. They called on our help constantly at the beginning, but less lately. Once they know how to use the tools , they be come a little more independent.Last year when I worked with Middle shool, I collaborated with the school media specialist too daily for the whole year. That was the reason why I got hooked with "teaching literacy by incorporating technology information".But it takes a lot of time, patience and ways to teach students this "New Literacy of this Time"
