    I have been so impressed with librarians! In every building I have visited, they always seem to be the leaders in facilitating change to digital resources. Do a Google Search for the term “Educator 21C” and watch a two-minute video about how step-by-step instructions are helping teachers implement technology in the classroom without becoming frustrated!
