We just kicked off a brand new hashtag to start using in our Future Ready Librarians conversations on Twitter, Instagram and in other social media platforms. It is #futurereadylibs we can't wait to see where this conversation takes librarians, libraries and education in 2017!
Follett and Project Connect are committed to helping educators and librarians lead beyond the library. There is now a complete set of PD opportunities. These online courses promote innovative school library models, helping you address critical educational challenges with a future ready approach.
Instructional partnership, personalized professional learning, curation of resources and tools, and #ParkwayMakes (makerspace) are some of the elements I include to support librarians as they build capacity, impact student learning, and lead beyond the library during this digital transformation.
