The WCCC Media Center offers both current books and the classics, and it offers eBooks, too. Students can also check out laptops, Flip cameras, Playaways and other technology. The Media Center is a vital part of the school, with students conducting research, collaborating on projects and exploring new ideas.
We are an extension of the classroom. The Media Center has a portable SmartBoard on which lessons are taught, student led presentations are given, and eBooks are shown. On any given day, students can be seen browsing for the latest fiction and searching online databases or meeting with friends and learning together.
A silent atmosphere is not the desired outcome, but an environment that encourages students to get actively engaged in their own learning. When you enter, you will notice that we have taken great care in making it aesthetically pleasing and inviting to all students and staff. Our offerings have been thoughtfully and methodically chosen to reflect the interests of all the students as well as technological trends globally.
Entire classes come to the media center to attend one of the many possible workshops. Some of the offerings are:
Children’s Literacy & Storytelling Workshop
Digital Storytelling with Storybird
How to Add Zip to Presentations with Prezi
Introduction to Google Docs
Top Tech Tools of 2012
Twitter in the Classroom
Workshops are created and determined to suit the needs of the students and staff. For a full list of workshop offerings or other information, please contact Winnie Milner, WCCC media center coordinator at 513-932-5677 ext. 5315 or Winnie.Milner@mywccc.org
