One of the unexpected surprises of Future Ready Librarians initiative has been the amazing virality of #futurereadylibs and the Future Ready Librarians Facebook page. Both librarians and educational leaders have embraced the idea of future-focused school libraries.
In this era of 'fake news' it is more important than ever for school librarians to help students learn to understand how and where to find accurate information and become responsible digital citizens. Read Joyce Valenza's column and share your thoughts about 'fake' news and digital citizenship.
With the Future Ready Librarian 2017-18 Goals Template (created by our friend and teacher librarian Suzanne Snead) being shared in big ways this week, we are all thinking about our qualities, goals and stories around being a Future Ready Librarian.
Last week I went to the Alliance of Excellent Education in Washington D.C. to meet with the Future Ready Schools team.
Britten Follett, Mark Ray and myself represented the Future Ready Librarians group and we were so excited to be joined by educational leaders from across the country
In this webinar, we explored the definitions and importance of digital literacy and citizenship. I also told my story of integrating digital literacy and citizenship into the library and school by creating a supportive and engaging curriculum, program and community.
