Susannah's vision for the Library + Media Literacy program is to foster a community of learning that promotes both media literacy and technology skills, empowering students to become independent digital citizens, with the ability to thoughtfully and responsibly access, analyze and create media. In addition to having the opportunity to borrow books from the library weekly, students will be working to:

  • practice proper typing skills to build speed and accuracy

  • learn to navigate both iPads and computers

  • navigate and search the web

  • effectively use educational websites

  • learn about how computers work

  • learn to use Google apps, including Google Classroom, Drive, Docs, Slides and Sites

  • learn computer science fundamentals, including block-based computer programming

  • put coding skills to use by programming robots

  • learn and practice important media literacy skills, such as evaluating the reliability of media, recognizing fake news, and avoiding online scams

  • learn about digital citizenship and practice online safety skills
