Instructional Materials Resource List

This is a resource guide for some of the learning moments that occurred during the Instructional Materials class for the Media Specialist track of the Plymouth State University MEd degree. My co-worker Joann Guilmet and I were invited to present a variety of new educational technologies that our new librarian/media specialists will be encountering in their field.
