Let’s Share: Best Practices in Media Mentorship

Do you consider yourself a media mentor? The ALSC Children and Technology Committee would like to hear about your best practices as a media mentor with new media, preschool age patrons, elementary age patrons, and during summer reading. Please contribute to our Google Form.  The committee will collect these best practices to share with our colleagues through articles, blog posts, twitterchats, and other continuing education opportunities.  As well, consider encouraging colleagues, at work or across the country, to share their successes, stories, and ideas.  The committee is interested in practices from all sorts of libraries: rural, urban, suburban; small, large, medium; public libraries, school libraries, special libraries; stand alone libraries, consortia, and library systems.
