Retro rehab your library learning spaces by reusing and recycling your library's furnishings. This is library make-over on a shoestring budget by bringing in vintage furniture, shopping your district's storage closets, and planning minimal purchases for collaborative learning spaces. Follow Northwest High School Library's third year of JumpStart freshmen classes' collaborations to introduce Chromebooks and Google apps in new spaces. Take home "retro" ideas to rehab, reuse, and recycle your current library bookcases, tables, and chairs. Plan flexible collaborative spaces and use professional development ideas to share with your teaching colleagues. We will explore visual and auditory applications using Google Docs, Slides, and Drawings, Adobe Spark, YouTube editor and screencasting apps so you can start tomorrow!
