It's All about the Student: How Students Learn and How Online Reference Sources Help (Booklist)
May 10

Today's students are diverse, and instruction to respond to varying interests, readiness levels, and learning styles is an important classroom trend. Going online has enabled reference publishers to move beyond the "one size fits all" print model and come up with products that help support this trend by providing students with multiple options for finding and taking in information and making sense of ideas. Booklist's Reference Books Bulletin editor Mary Ellen Quinn hosts a panel discussing how students learn, and how reference publishers are tailoring their products to meet the needs of the new generation of learners.

Twitter: Forbid It, Ignore It, or Use It? Insight and Implementation (TLT Group)
May 13

Not sure how to get started with Twitter? Perhaps somewhat familiar with what it is but not necessarily what it's good for? (other than celebrity minutia and middle east revolution) Derek Bruff will walk through the basics and talk sensibly about the pros and cons of current and potential uses in higher education. Under what circumstances and for what purposes it can be more than a distraction?

Transforming Your Library with a Personalized Literacy Environment (School Library Journal)
May 18

The webinar moderator, Carl Harvey (incoming AASL president), will focus the discussion on questions around successfully using new technology to connect the library to curriculum and technology, while still pursuing literacy goals and those vague "21st Century Skills" our students need to attain. We know that the knowledge and expertise that librarians and media specialists bring to each school district is invaluable. But how do we overcome the numerous challenges we face - from budget cuts to proving program need? By focusing on student success and creating unlimited access we can recreate our traditional role and move toward championing the future in reading.

Click with the Curriculum: Integrating Digital Content (School Library Journal)
May 19

Every year schools and districts across the country make significant investments in digital content. This program will focus on the strategic manner in which this content is utilized to design curriculum and assessment, deliver instruction and support student engagement and the development of 21st century skills. You will benefit from hearing the perspectives of a school librarian, an assistant superintendent, and a teacher and their roles in developing a resource-based curriculum that integrates digital content through web pages, by utilizing custom designed web portals, and embedding selected content in LMS systems.
