Thing 34 covers ideas for creating more effective reports, ones that truly show the place of the library program in supporting student learning and other goals of the school.
This is also your opportunity to pull together all the ideas from the lessons on Evidence Based Practice and Connecting with your Stakeholders and show how those ideas might change what and how you report to your community.
And before you finish Thing 34, you might also want to go back and revisit some other Cool Tools topics. In particular:
- Digital Storytelling and Presentation Tools – Are there some tools you could use to jazz up your annual report? Perhaps present it in a whole new way?
- Infographics & Data Visualization – So many ideas for how to present data and information in attention grabbing ways.
Even if you’ve done those lessons before, feel free to dig in and repeat them. You can count them towards your PD credit for this year as long as you do something different than in previous years.
