    To reach a generation of users who expect to seek information, learn, and communicate online, 21st century educators must retool and determine how best to accomplish this mission in new information landscapes. Teacher-librarians must build landscapes to meet their learners’ needs online.
    School library websites have new potential to expand and reinterpret library service for learners. Through their websites, teacher-librarians can apply traditional skills--for instruction, collection development, collaboration, reference, and administration--in powerful new ways. They can apply these skills in highly populated, newly emerging information landscapes. They can offer 24/7 accessibility, just-in-time/just-for-me learning opportunities. As scalable strategies, school library websites allow librarians to guide unlimited numbers of students—onsite, at home, or otherwise distant. If we our to reach learners who are largely online, we must move our practice. If we plan to intervene in student research, we must find new ways to be there. Joyce Valenza

    Kids’ Dental Health
    by Alexandr Stacanov © 2012 TwoTea Applications
    With very few educational and interactive books in the App Store centered around health topics, like dental hygiene, Kids’ Dental Health is very user friendly and well worth the $1.99 download.
    As the Toothbrush Song states,
    Brush, brush, brush your teeth
    Brush them everyday.
    We put toothpaste on our brush
    To help stop tooth decay
    Floss, floss, floss your teeth.
    Floss them every day!
    Using the string to clean between
    Keeps the plaque away!
    Clean, clean, clean your teeth.
    Clean them every day!
    Your teeth will sparkle for years to come
    In the most beautiful way!
    Brush, brush, brush your teeth.
    Brush them every day!
    Happy, healthy teeth you’ll have
    If it’s done this way.
    each stanza of this song coordinates with a page within the book. To rid your mouth of tooth decay, Kids’ Dental Health not only shares factual information in a story like format, but it also introduces new vocabulary.
    At this time, there is only one interactive gaming feature, however, 3 additional games are coming in a future update for free.
    Stage One classroom teachers can benefit from downloading Kids’ Dental Health as it meets curriculum requirements for those in preschool-1st grade.
