Each year, media specialists, computer-lab teachers and academic coaches are invited to attend the Liberty County School System Media and Technology Showcase.
This year’s event, held recently, included participants from Liberty, Long, Bryan, Camden, Effingham, Glynn, McIntosh, Telfair and Wayne counties.  
Participants attended workshops on the following topics:  Common Core Standards Align to SIRS Discoverer, Reading Eggs, Getting Your Projects Funded using Donors Choose, Introducing STAR 360, Making History in Your Media Center, Creating Winning Media Festival Projects with Wixie, Study Island, Information Literacy and Project Achievement, Introducing STAR 360, and Web Resources for Instruction from netTrekker.
In addition to workshops, participants explored the latest products in technology and media presented at various vendor booths in the LCSS boardroom.
“The Liberty County School System Media and Technology Showcase enables media specialists from Liberty and surrounding counties to share ideas, learn about new products and gain important professional knowledge,” said Jaime Rearley, LCSS media coordinator/instructional technology specialist. “Three media specialists from Liberty County — Roxanne Lee, Melissa McCallar and Nikki Lukkarinen — presented workshop sessions during the showcase. I look forward to facilitating the showcase each year because it provides the opportunity for effective practices and strategies to spread.”
