Slide73 l.jpg

June, 2004

This PowerPoint has been created by me (Claudette Curl) for a technology class at MSU (CEP 810) and as a “thank you” to the library media specialists who hosted my (Claudette’s) Masters Practicum. This is meant to be used as a tool by students and staff alike, in whatever way best suits the needs of the school. This is free for educational use and is not to be sold or reused without my (Mrs. Curl’s) consent.

Students are often absent from school or need review or reinforcement of policies in the classroom and around the school. This is true in the library media center as well. This StAIR is designed for students to use alone, as an electronic orientation, or to use as review of many very basic terms, policies, and principles.

Educators find that many students who are reluctant to ask questions or admit that they don’t know their way around the library, are very willing to work on the computer and familiarize themselves via this electronic medium. As designer and creator of this orientation, I hope that students and staff alike find this helpful and fun! Best of luck to you all. Enjoy!
