Library 2.0: The Digital Reshift

The world is changing, and school libraries certainly aren’t immune. Though change can be difficult, it can also bring new possibilities. In the case of school libraries, this change means navigating through a digital reshift – an adoption of new tools and techniques that reinvigorate our traditional library practices. Christopher Harris, recently named a Library Journal Mover & Shaker for being a 2.0 Guru, has focused on the potential of technology in a flat world to bring powerful changes to the libraries he serves. From an online library portal that provides student-centered access to a library experience 24/7 to a game library that pushes the boundaries of learning resources, Christopher will share a wealth of tools and practices that define the Digital Reshift.

AASL Standards for the 21st Century Learner will be presented by Stevan Kalmon, Director for the Council on 21st Century Learning, Colorado State Library’s Nance Nassar, and Colorado’s AASL Representative, Sherry Crow

Workshops & planning time will reinforce learning by addressing:

  • Useful Web 2.0 tools for the librarian by Christopher Harris

  • Blogs & Nings by University of Colorado’s Dr. Laura Summers

  • Roaring Fork SD & CASL Board Member Jenna Cook’s successful student collaboration program

Registration for the full-day CASL preconference is $60 for TIE attendees ($100 for the preconference only, for those not staying for TIE­) regardless of CAL membership status and includes coffee & lunch. .5 UCD graduate credit hour available for an additional fee.

  1. Just tried to download the registration form. This link seems to work for the form. Hope all can join!

  2. Thanks, Phil;

    I noticed that too. We’re planning a great event and hope to fill the resort with anyone connected to a school library. You don’t even need to be a member of CASL!

    And, wait until you find out what everyone will be able to take home. Be there!
