Yippee! I am Symbaloo EDU Certified!

I have been an avid user of Symbaloo for three years.  The incredible Shannon McClintock Miller, K-12 teacher-librarian and technology integration specialist for Van Meter CSD, introduced me to Symbaloo at the Iowa Association School Library Conference.  I have been hooked on Symbaloo ever since!


Thanks to my recent blog posts on how I integrate Symbaloo into my library skills classes, more specifically my recent thematic unit on the Iowa Goldfinch Award in grades K-2, I have received attention from Symbaloo.  You can read about these blog posts here , herehere , and here.  It is such an honor and priviledge to be asked by Symbaloo EDU to become an ambassador and to earn the proper certifications from Symbaloo!

Thanks to my first ever blog post http://outrageouslywildwonderfullibrarian.blogspot.com/2014/01/2013-2014-iowa-goldfinch-award-unit.html , I received the following tweets from Symbaloo EDU.







After these tweets, some behind-the-scene work on my educator spotlight video and interview, and behind-the-scene work on earning the basic Symbaloo certification, I am happy to announce I am now officially Basic Symbaloo Certified!  Yippee!



Now, it is on to becoming PD Pro Symbaloo certified!  Let the learning continue! :)
