This is the image for the news article titled Mrs. Bogle cleans up with grants and technologyMrs. Bogle has been working extremely hard in the media center of ALB for a while now. She has been with the WONDERS for many years. This year, she has been working extremely hard in the ALB media center, taking it from just a place for books and some research, to a hands on, creative learning space with digital technology and all types of learning! 

Mrs. Bogle received a grant to create the new "I WONDER" makerspace, which kicked off earlier this school year. Since then, Mrs. Bogle has received the Read 2 Succeed grant from the North Carolina School Library Media Association. This grant was for $1,000 for innovative projects that integrate information skills into the curriculum. At ALB, these funds will be used to purchase materials such as small electronics and a 3D printing pen to give students access to learning about circuitry and structures. 

Maybe you have also seen the new breakout rooms popping up around town. You go in with a group of friends and use the clues to break out in a certain amount of time. Mrs. Bogle has brought this to ALB! With funds from the Read 2 Succeed grant, she incorporated "break out" boxes into classroom instruction, using content based problem solving, movement, critical thinking, and teamwork. Teachers participating in the first professional development sessions have loved it! Students using it in their classes have enjoyed it as well! 

Earlier in November, Mrs. Bogle received a Bright Ideas grant, from Energy United in the amount of $1,424.78. It was a HUGE check....literally. The funds from this grant will be used to purchase several kits of LIttle Bits electronics. These are small magnetic bits that crate a small circuit. Hundreds applied, only 37 applicants were awarded grants. Our awesome media coordniator Mrs Bogle, was one of the few!  

Thank you Mrs. Bogle for always making ALB soar!
