Using the Learning Center's Library

This Web Seminar took place on November 2, 2011 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time. Presenting was Flavio Mendez, Senior Director, NSTA Learning Center. In this Seminar, Mr. Mendez focused the presentation on the Library function of the Learning Center and showed the participants how to add resources to their libraries.

The PowerPoint, related resources from the NSTA Learning Center, and web links from the presentation are now contained in the above resource collection. Clicking on the collection link will place it in your Learning Center, My Library, neatly organized under the My Resource Collections tab.

Flavio Mendez talked about the Learning Center Library, the key depository for Learning Center resources. He showed participants how to access the Learning Center resources and how to store them in their personal libraries. Mr. Mendez also directed participants to create and share collections with other participants of the program and with their own colleagues.

Forty (40) participants were present at the live Web Seminar in addition to the presenter and NSTA staff. Participating educators represented the states of California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Maine, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, Virginia, Washington and West Virginia. In addition, one participant joined the program from a location outside of the United States: Israel.

Seminar participants received a one year subscription to the NSTA SciPack of their choice. A certificate of attendance was deposited into participants’ My PD Record and Certificate area in the NSTA Learning Center for completing the evaluation form at the end of the program.

Here are some comments provided by the participants at the end of the Web Seminar:

  • “It provided me with the guidance needed to efficiently organize the resources I have collected. I also know how to share these with colleagues and within NSTA.”
  • “I was able to gain better understanding of all the resources available for my students!!!”
  • “Didn't know how much I didn't know about all the NSTA Library features!”
  • “I have been somewhat stumbling around within the Learning Center, trying to set things up for my personal teaching and wanting to do something for PD of my department. This gave me the starting tools so that I now have a path to follow.”

Thanks to the participants and the presenter for the learning opportunity, the interactions, and a job well done!
