Technology

  • The library media specialist is proactive in seeking out and infusing technological resources into her work with students to support and enhance the essential learning presented in this curriculum. Students demonstrate competencies by using technology as a medium for project-based work, producing reports, multimedia presentations, and other products. The tools of technology foster cooperation, communication, independence, and the ability to gather, organize, manipulate, and evaluate data and to use multiple resources.

    Purchasing

    In Broward County media centers, the budget comes from the state media funds (project 113 Funds) as well as funds designated by the principal from the school’s operating budget called discretionary funds. Any funds that come from the state may only be used to purchase library materials. The amount of the Project 113 funds is determined by the amount of full time equivalent (FTE) students registered at the school. Of course, schools may also conduct fundraisers to increase their purchasing power if need be.
