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
Is it learning together? Working toward a common goal? Building school spirit? How does your school library program promote community?
Students are encouraged to submit videos to the American Association of School Librarians detailing examples of how their school library connects to this year’s School Library Month theme “Communities matter @ your library.” Videos should visually illustrate how the school library program fosters a sense of community in their school.
Contestants are urged to unleash their creativity and just have fun! Use humor, drama, music, or special effects to showcase your amazing school library. Entries must be submitted to SchoolTube.com between Feb. 1 and March 19, 2013 by 11:59 P.M. CST to be eligible to win. For a full list of contest rules and eligibility visitwww.ala.org/aasl/slm/video.
