Presented by: The Lilead Project, OverDrive & School Library Journal

Event Date & Time: Wednesday, November 2nd, 2016, 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM ET / 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM PT
View On DemandSchools across the country are revising their goals, missions and strategic plans to ensure that they are preparing “future ready” graduates. The educational shift towards the digital age comes with its own set of challenges, from integrating district-wide information literacy to embracing a culture of new technology. The key is to take a constructive and collaborative approach that fosters accessibility and best practices. 

In this webinar, you will learn what several experts are doing to help schools build a 21st century library. Our panelists will explain that it’s not enough to simply purchase digital assets – educators need professional development opportunities that concentrate on why students benefit from modern technology. They will also discuss how school librarians can leverage digital and print resources to become instructional and technological leaders, ultimately outfitting students with the skills they’ll need to succeed in the digital future.
