Effective August 5th the password for students and teachers to use off campus will change. Because the password cannot be shared on a public website, we won't post it here, but be on the look-out for more information.
Also, a new resource from EBSCO has been added to the NCWiseOwl site. You will now see a link for Explora in each of the school zones. Explora will be replacing Searchasaurus, Kids Search, and Student Research Center. Over the next few weeks, we will be removing the links to those three resources that are being discontinued by EBSCO. Teachers and students should be able to use Explora to access content that they are accustomed to receiving from those three resources.
Over the next few weeks, we will also be sharing our NCWiseOwl Toolkit that will provide links to promotional materials and tutorials. We are also excited about Wiseowl Wednesdays. We have webinars planned for Wednesdays throughout the school year. Also the @ncdpiDTL twitter account will have special NCWiseOwl related tweets on Wednesdays.

Calling all librarians! Speak Up 2015 wants to hear from YOU! An AASL affiliate, Speak Up is a free survey tool for schools and districts that annually polls K-12 students, parents and educators on digital learning and the use of technology to support future ready schools. Since 2003, more than 4 million have participated with over 120,000 surveys already taken this year. All participating schools and districts will receive free online access to their participant results with national comparisons in February 2016.
This year Speak Up will once again offer a special survey just for Librarians and Media Specialists. As a companion to the other Speak Up surveys, your input will help complete the picture of what's required to effectively support the use of technology for learning. Last year 2,500 librarians participated in Speak Up and they would like to double that number this year.
To take the survey, click on the promotional banner above or go to http://bit.ly/SULibrarian. Act soon! This year's deadline is December 18th!
