My day doesn’t just consist of checking out books to kids – I am constantly meeting the needs of teachers by making sure one has the overhead projector she needs, another has a video projector and the coaxial cable necessary to reach from her computer, that the laptop cart is ready to be wheeled to a classroom, that a math teacher knows where to find a video clip on estimation on United Streaming, and that another math teacher has access to the library computer lab to do a drill-and-practice multiplication exercise. (I did all of this today, by the way).
The district/building technology coordinator and library media specialist must coordinate to provide support and expertise to teachers, students, and administrators in an effort to seamlessly integrate technology skills into the curriculum.
Academically in the same College, often the same Department, but separate programs
