Community Forum on Digital Literacy, Digital Citizenship for Children in Libraries

ALSC/AASL Collaborative Community Forum: Digital Literacy, Digital Citizenship for Children in Libraries

The ALSC Board of Directors and 2017 ALSC President Nina Lindsay will be co-hosting an ALSC/AASL Collaborative Community Forum live chat on the topic of Digital Literacy, Digital Citizenship for Children in Libraries.

The forum will be held on Thursday, March 23, 2017 at:
1 pm Eastern
12 pm Central
11 am Mountain
10 am Pacific

With library and education funding and policy in question, who is teaching children information literacy–where and how? From “fake news” to new privacy concerns, from government “data rescue” to the threat to intellectual freedom with loss of data and access to broadband, what on-the-ground strategies can library staff in public and school libraries employ to prepare children to be digitally literate citizens?

This ALSC Community Forum will be jointly hosted by ALSC’s Intellectual Freedom Committee and American Association of School Librarians (AASL) Directors. We are delighted to open this forum to both divisions’ members.
