NSTA Learning Center Collections: Grouping and Sharing Resources
View the series

This web seminar took place on November 13, 2012, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time. The presenter was Flavio Mendez, Senior Director, NSTA Learning Center. In this seminar Mr. Mendez provided an in-depth look at the Learning Center’s My Library tool, which allows users to add resources to access later, recommend resources to friends and colleagues, and organize resources in personalized collections.

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.

During this web seminar Mr. Mendez showed participants how to make the most of the My Library tool. He shared step-by-step instructions for each of the functions associated with My Library, including sharing resources with other teachers, uploading personal resources, saving favorite websites, and creating collections to keep resources organized around a theme. Web seminar participants had the opportunity to visit the Learning Center and practice adding, sharing, and grouping resources in their own libraries.

Seminar participants received one of the NSTA SciGuides. A certificate of attendance was deposited into participants' My PD Record and Certificates 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:

  • “I had participated in many seminars but did not know that the site has so many resources and all the tools I can use for myself and for my teachers and friends.”
  • “I enjoyed doing the things myself and having ample time to complete them.”
  • “Very clear instructions. Practical and very useful resources.”
  • “Really, REALLY helpful and informative! I learned so much!”

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