Evaluation Summary-Everyone shared. -Productive use of breakout room by participants. -Sometimes when a person is sharing, another will interrupt. I try to make sure that the person initially speaking has the opportunity to finish their thought. -The reading for today was very helpful - who stakeholders are within the community and school building, including students, nurses, and guidance counselors. -Time to determine what platform they will use to showcase what the library is doing. Some mentioned Microsoft Teams, Library web page, and school newsletter. Some who were planning to use the school's Facebook page, twitter, and Instagram were told they can't because of Ed. Law 2d
