Transcript of New Bern High School

Our goal is to use our central location within the school to our advantage and create a hub of activity for students.

NBHS Library Vision Statement:
to take the lead on ensuring that every student has acquired college-level information literacy before graduation, to provide every student with equal opportunities to use new technology, to work collaboratively with teachers to create dynamic lesson plans that seamlessly integrate modern technology, and to collaborate with students and support their education and research endeavors.
Removed unneeded bookshelves & plan to upgrade to mobile shelving to give more space for student & teacher use

Switched to the Bookstore method of shelving

Computer lab has been moved to a more convenient location

Quiet study area has been created at front of library

Upgrading common seating area to Podz Modular Seating soon

Cache of school supplies created for student use

Donated iPads available for student & teacher use
Changes are Happening in the Library!
During the 2014-2015 school year, the NBHS library will be using a new social network for communication between teachers, students, and parents.

Celly is free and accessible via cellphone, smartphone, and desktop.

Celly will allow students to create discussions, help each other with homework, share links and videos, create reminders about upcoming assignments, and much, much more. You can share content from Spotify, Vine, and YouTube, as well as animated GIFs and photos.

NBHS librarians will use Celly to distribute helpful links to specific classes. We will also use Celly to send reminders to students about upcoming library events and any library due dates specific students may have.

Let's Learn Together
New Bern High School Library
New Bern High School is working hard to remove the stigma associated with cell phones in the classroom. As of August 8, 2014, NBHS has adopted the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Technology Model.

We ask that students only use their personal devices during breaks between classes, at meals, and after school unless otherwise specified by their instructor.
BYOD allows students to bring their personal devices (latptops, tablets, smartphones, etc) to school. We will provide each student with a unique login for the school's Wi-Fi.
