Webinar archive (you must watch it from a computer):

Fliqz has shut down their service. To access this video, email support with this video id: 0c1168455b384f5a9c60ed1b6691a184

If you did not attend the webinar live you must watch the archive and answer this question about it in a blog post. Title your blog post "December webinar question."

  1. LeAnn highlights a lot of different ELM databases and the Internet Public Library in the webinar. How could you use the Internet Public Library or some of the highlighted ELM databases in your classroom or with students?



Carla from Minitex will be our guest speaker.


ELM Databases

  • Databases provided by the state of MN.
  • Click the Grade Level tab to choose a grade level and see databases.
  • Or select a Topic area to see databases useful for those areas.


Database Exploration Checklist

  • Use when trying to find the best database to use.


Videos - short how-to videos on using these databases:


Internet Public Library

  • An index to credible websites put together by librarians.


More info on Visible vs. Invisible Web:




1. Use some ELM databases that may work for either you or your students and blog about what you find.

2. Remember to post at least 2 blog posts a month.




If you can't think of what to write about in your blog post, keep these things in mind:

  • Keep the blog post on the theme of the month. Think about the ideas, tools, or concepts introduced when writing your post.
  • What this month was interesting to you? How could you see using an idea, concept, or tool in your professional or personal life or in the classroom, or how have you already used it? Give examples.
  • What was new to you? Identify an idea, concept, or tool that was new to you and explore your thoughts about this new item and how it could add to or change something you already do.
  • Keep it positive. We know you may not love every idea, concept, or tool we tell you about, but tell us positively why you think it may not work for you. Give examples.
