Symbaloo organized my library
I decided after I saw a school library media specialist library use her Symbaloo to organize her library, I had to do it as well. I made a color coded Symbaloo for the different components of information kids can access through the library website. I learned that I can actually embed the Symbaloo directly on the Follett Destiny site so kids can see it immediately when they go to the card catalog.
I selected links that are specific to my kids. Book report info, PBL type materials, Research sites (paid and free), citation sites, even some places for homework help. It was a simple process and it was fast to complete. When I did in class lessons, I shared the Symbaloo with the students and showed them how simple it was to use this method to access their needed information. I even have some additional space later to make more tiles if I come across some.
Symbaloo is a MUST HAVE for any educator. It is a simple way to sort and organize. For my purposes, it offered a large amount of information in a more organized way. It has made life for my students easier for sure.
