American Association of School Librarians Fall Forum: School Librarians in the Anytime Anywhere Learning Landscape, October 17-18, 2014
When: Friday, October 17, 2014
Where: St. Louis, Missouri
School Librarians in the Anytime Anywhere Learning Landscape is an exciting opportunity for school librarians to learn how to best support their communities while taking a prominent leadership role in navigating a new frontier. Much like a GPS helps you locate and find your way through an ever increasingly complex landscape, the school librarian locates and leads blended learning activities through the school library program. Whether you call it digital learning, blended learning, extended learning, expanded learning, or 24/7 learning the role of the school librarian is to locate new tools and activities and tether them back to institutional and curricular needs.
Participants at this 2-day intensive workshop will:
--Define the learning landscapes
--Identify the role of the school librarian and school library program in these landscapes
--Explore tools and resources to help school librarians guide anytime anywhere activities
--Develop action plans for creating anytime anywhere opportunities through the school library program
