Here are some librarian influencer tips Leticia shared:
Identify your priorities and take it one day at a time. Flexibility is important.
Letty is working on virtual makerspaces and a virtual game night to help stay connected with the students. She hopes it helps students relax and get their minds off the pandemic.
Librarians are instructional technology leaders. The pandemic has really brought this to the forefront of our skill set.
Librarians are professional development providers:
Letty is seeking Google Trainer certification so she can help teachers more.
She loves to teach about Google, Microsoft, Kahoot, FlipGrid, and NearPod.
Treats can help draw teachers in to your trainings.
Provide little bits of training at a time so you don’t overwhelm them.
She uses Digital Badges in her email signature line to market what she is ready to provide training in.
