Empowering Students As Creators...Join Us For The Next Future Ready Librarian Webinar!

We are excited to announce that the third Future Ready Librarian webinar is coming up on June 13, 2017 at 4:00pm EST.  

It is going to focus on Empowering Students As Creators, one of the gears within the Future Ready Librarian framework.  

And I couldn't be more excited to share that Traci Chun, Teacher Librarian Lead, Skyview High School and Vancouver Public Schools in Washington and Diana Rendina, Media specialist, Tampa Preparatory School in Florida. 

This webinar will examine how librarians can empower students as creators. Library leaders will share how they encourage and facilitate students to become increasingly self-directed as they create digital products of their learning that engage them in critical thinking, collaboration, and authentic, real-world problem solving.

Please join us by registering at this link.  Participants will receive a certificate of participation after the webinar too. 

We can't wait to see you on June 13 as we talk about empowering our students as creators today and tomorrow.
