A Library In Every Pocket: Virtualizing Your Library for Mobile Learning


Not if, but when your school turns to mobile learning, will your library be ready? Information technology presents librarians with an opportunity to facilitate the transition to mobile learning. Facilitators, which will include a student panel, in this hands-on, BYOT session will highlight strategies to virtualize library services for tiny screens. Participants will practice using tools for building virtual, hand-held libraries, and will leave this session with a toolkit to expand virtual library services.

I'm both happy and sad to say that our Pre-Conference workshop at #AASL13 (American Association of School Librarians) is SOLD OUT! W00t!
Sad because I feel in a way this blog post is a tease, 'cause if you're not already booked it's too late but happy because that's always the worry that no one will show up!
Three years ago I blogged about this topic, but WOW...how things have changed since then! We can't wait to share some new ideas & collaborate with the 65 people registered for this pre-conference workshop!  We will be publishing our resources on the Wiki and probably be live Tweeting, too!

The amazing Carolyn Foote is organizing the AASL Learning Commons - sorta like a Bloggers' Cafe or a great learning place and fun hangout spot! Located across from the exhibit hall this will be THE PLACE to re-charge, connect, and shmooze! I'll be presenting (informally) there on Friday afternoon around 10:55-11:25ish next to the amazing Katie Davis! stop by & say Hello! Why not join and start connecting now on the AASL13 Ning?!
