(This session has concluded. Presentation slides and the video recording are available on this session page.)

When the pandemic hit and schools closed, the need to create and deliver relevant professional development opportunities to K-12 media specialists and teachers increased.

In this session, Donita Hinckley, Education Technology Analyst & Library Media Liaison from the Georgia Department of Education, will share lessons learned as she created, promoted, and delivered well attended statewide meetings designed to assist media specialists and teachers with the transition to virtual learning environments.

Russell Palmer from GALILEO will discuss his involvement in these events, and how collaboration with Donita at GaDOE and Georgia’s RESA’s (Regional Education Service Areas) increased awareness of GALILEO resources and services following the release of the GALILEO redesign in July 2020.

Russell and Donita will share some of the fun tools and effective strategies learned from others as part of this process.
