Join Us For The Second Future Ready Librarians Webinar...Leading Beyond The Library
On April 11, 2017 at 4:00pm EST please join Mark Ray and myself as we welcome two special guests from Parkway School District in Missouri....Bill Bass, Innovation Coordinator for Instructional Technology, Information and Library Media, and Kim Lindskog, District Lead Librarian.
How can school librarians support Future Ready Schools(FRS)? Future Ready Librarians (FRL) responds to this challenge by identifying specific ways that librarians can lead, teach, and support personalized student learning. The FRL framework is based on research-based components used by FRS. This webinar will examine how librarians can support collaborative leadership by leading beyond the library. Hear from district and library leaders how school librarians are extending their leadership beyond their libraries to benefit their schools and district.
In Missouri’s Parkway School District, the FRL framework and Project Connect are guiding the work of the district as they reimagine existing library programs and make decisions about future directions. Focusing on each of these individual topics has given them great insight into leading beyond the library and what it means to be a librarian in the digital age.
