Colette Cassinelli is a library and instructional technology teacher at Sunset High School in Beaverton, Oregon, with over 25+ years of teaching experience in grades K-16. A passionate learner, she’s always on the lookout for great information literacy or technology integration lessons to share with faculty.

Cassinelli is a Google Certified Innovator and has presented at local and national library and technology conferences, including IntegratED, Northwest Council for Computer Education (NCCE), International Society of Technology in Education conference (ISTE), EdTechTeam Google Summits, and Oregon Association of School Libraries (OASL).
She is the author of the book, Inspiring Curiosity: The Librarian’s Guide to Inquiry-Based Learning (to be published by ISTE, May 2018).
During my very first blog post, titled “Seeking the Answer” I share:
One of my favorite quotes is “We learn more by looking for the answer to a question and not finding it than we do from learning the answer itself ” (Lloyd Alexander). This blog represents my vision and quest for NOT discovering the answer – but probing the questions about the power of educational technology which hopefully will lead to newer and more fascinating questions to ponder.
I use this blog to share what I am doing in my library, to share new tools or projects that I am involved in or just reflect on my own learning. This is my self-discovery and I look forward to sharing it with you and learning from you along the way.
