These forums will have a special emphasis on new media in libraries:
- what it is
- how we use it
- how to develop best practices in this rapidly evolving information environment
The ALSC Children & Technology Committee will be co-hosting this online discussion. The community forum will build on the 2013 ALA Annual Conference Conversation Starter: “Building A to Zoo for Apps: Time-tested librarian skills meet cutting edge technology for kids.” In addition to the 45 minutes of discussion, these forums will include quick announcements from the ALSC Board of Directors at the 2013 ALA Annual Conference and a time for questions at the end.
Your two opportunities to join in the discussion are:
- Tuesday, August 20 at 11am CT
- Wednesday, August 21 at 2pm CT
ALSC Community Forums now take place on Adobe Connect. The forum will take place in a similar format although the first ten minutes will include live audio from ALSC President Starr LaTronica and from presenter Cen Campbell.
A few days prior to the event, ALSC members will receive an email with a URL link to the forum. Visit the ALSC Community Forum site for more information about using Adobe Connect.
