American Association of School Librarians (AASL) Announces 2014 Best Websites for Teaching & Learning
Sites named as Best Websites for Teaching & Learning foster the qualities of innovation, creativity, active participation and collaboration. They offer tools and resources in the categories of media sharing, digital storytelling, managing and organizing, social networking and communications, curriculum collaboration and content resources.
“The Best Websites committee reviews over one hundred amazing sites every year,” said Heather Moorefield-Lang, chair. “Best Websites offers a multitude of online learning opportunities for students, librarians, and their peer educators. We hope everyone enjoys this year’s list, and that members of AASL as well as their fellow educators and administrators will continue to submit nominations via our webpage for future review.”
“The American Association of School Librarians is thrilled to be announcing the 150th site recognized as a Best Website for Teaching & Learning,” said Gail Dickinson, AASL president. “The selected sites are an invaluable resource to school librarians. The committee employed an intensive review process to ensure that the 2014 websites provide exceptional value for instruction.”
