As I share the Future Ready Librarian framework during presentations and at workshops, conferences, webinars and other events, I not only share Future Ready Librarians and all of the gears that empower us to drive change, embrace personalizing student learning and lead beyond the library, I also brainstorm and share ideas for making FRL part of any school and learning community.
You can share the Future Ready Librarian framework in school wide professional development; back-to-school night with parents; copy it off and slip into teacher mailboxes; and how about hanging it up in the library and other places in the building.
Well, when I mentioned this in the above slide at a conference in Texas a few weeks ago, I thought and brainstormed with others....
Why not make the Future Ready Librarian Framework into a poster with a super title like "I Am A Future Ready Librarian" across the top? The poster could include how to connect socially and also through a QR code. It could be a very useful tool for all of us as we move ourselves and libraries to being Future Ready too.
I contacted my friends at the Alliance for Excellent Education and Follett as we went to work in creating a poster we could use and get into the hands, libraries and learning communities around the country sharing, strengthening and celebrating our Future Ready Librarians.
Today, Future Ready Schools had it ready to go and shared it on Twitter! It is just so awesome and one that you will want to print off, hang up and point out to everyone too.
You can find the 11 x 17 or 18 x 24 Future Ready Librarian poster here. Feel free to copy it and use in some of the ways we just discussed and thought about.
Also, Mark Ray and I will be handing out posters at the ISTE Librarians Network Playground from 8:00am to 11:30am CST Monday, June 26..and other places throughout the conference.
We hope to see you all there.
