Library Media & Technology Integration

Welcome!

The Library Media & Technology Integration program at Waitsfield Elementary School is designed to encourage learning connections in both academic and recreational pursuits. Our wonderful library collection and our robust technology tools foster a collaborative learning environment where students are asked to actively participate in their learning. Through curricular connections and trusting relationships students are able to think, create, share, and grow.

The library houses a wide range of materials including picture books, novels, and non-fiction titles that are intended to support classroom curriculum and student interests. Students visit the library once a week for a scheduled class and are welcome anytime to browse for books, research a question, or simply say hello. Families are also always welcome; please stop in for a bundle of books, a recommendation, or to offer an idea.

Waitsfield School strongly supports the use of technology and it’s role in fostering collaborative learning. We utilize Google Apps for Education for all our students to enhance teaching and learning. These tools help students create, edit, and share their work with teachers and peers. In order to access these tools we maintain three mobile labs; a MacBook, MacBook Air, and iPad cart are available for teachers to incorporate into their classrooms throughout the day.

Please visit our Waitsfield Elementary School Library & Technology blog for further resources (including our online library catalog) and current events. While you’re there feel free to leave a comment!
