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
