Dreaming of an Amazing 2021

Happy New Year and Happy 2021! This month’s library display features inspirational books to remind us to follow our dreams. All of the fiction and nonfiction books on display will encourage readers to set goals and achieve them. If you are interested in searching for other books in the library, checkout the Destiny Library Catalog or Destiny Discover.

In addition to our display of inspirational books, you can also enjoy a book talk featuring some of these fiction and nonfiction titles. You can view the book talk here. Please don’t hesitate to stop by the library to see what we have to offer you or just for a quick visit.

Tech Tips for the New Year

If you are not currently a member of TCEA, I would highly suggest joining when they offer free memberships throughout the year! According to their website, “TCEA (Texas Computer Education Association) is a global, nonprofit, member-based organization. We support the use of technology in education. Founded in 1980, TCEA has been playing a vital role in increasing technology funding and access for PreK-16 schools for nearly 40 years. Our 28,000-member association is led by a grassroots board of directors—all professional educators. TCEA’s resources support educators in the field who are enhancing curriculum with digital tools.”

Not only does TCEA offer a community of technology-minded educators, it also offers training, podcasts, certifications, conventions, CPE credit courses, and so much more. I personally love reading the TCEA blogs that are posted through the week because each one offers a different perspective on digital learning in the classroom. Checkout the top 20 blogs from TCEA 2020 here: https://blog.tcea.org/our-top-20-ed-tech-blogs-of-2020/. Entries 7, 9 , & 18 are my personal favorites! Check back here in the month of February for my takeaways from the TCEA 2021 Convention and Exposition.
