AASL Fall Forum: In Focus: The Essentials for 21st-Century Learning

AASL Fall Forum – November 5-6, 2010 Portland, Oregon

In this dynamic age, students have unprecedented access to diverse, independent and immediate information resources. This may be the first time in history our students are as familiar with modern research tools as we are, but they still lack the essential skills necessary to responsibly and effectively navigate the educational environment.

In Focus: The Essentials for 21st-Century Learning is designed to aid school librarians in focusing learning on the essentials, as students distill and isolate information, think and re-think the world inside and outside their classrooms.  www.ala.org/aasl/fallforum

Using the Standards for the 21st-Century Learner and Empowering Learners: Guidelines for School Library Media Program Development, attendees will connect school library programs to current educational concepts now at the core of curriculum, and leave with new insight to encourage, elevate and evaluate information literacy in their programs.
