Enter The Future Ready Librarian Contest Today...Let's Make Our FRL Framework Interactive!

We have something very exciting to announce and it is just in time for a brand new school year!
With the new additions of Literacy and Learner Centered to the Future Ready Librarian Framework, there is a lot of buzz about what this will mean to our students, teachers, libraries and of course, all of the Future Ready Librarians around the world.  

So this week, we were thinking....

Wouldn't it be awesome if the Future Ready Librarian could be interactive and something that we could easily share a lot of information, resources and ideas with just a few clicks?  

It could include not only the framework details, but links, videos, resources and more with each wedge! That would be so valuable to all of us as we enter a new school year making a difference in the libraries and communities we work in every day, and in sharing Future Ready Librarians with our teachers, principals and superintendents.  

The first thought that popped into my head was...

OHHHHH, that sounds like a perfect use for Buncee or ThingLink!  

But then we thought....

Let's ask all of the amazing Future Ready Librarians to help us with this and have a contest to see what they create out of the framework!  

Here is what we are looking for!  

1.  Create an interactive Future Ready Librarians Framework which would include resources, links, videos, explanations and more.  
These resources could be from the Future Ready Librarian site,
Future Ready Librarians Collections by Destiny, Future Ready Librarians webinars, examples, exemplars, etc...
You will find these resources in the Fueling Future Ready Librarians Smore here.
You will also find all of the Future Ready Librarian Framework assets in this Google Folder.  

2.  Make the example easy to be shared and copied by anyone.

3.  Have fun and make sure you shine in showing off your Future Ready Librarian skills too!

To make it even more exciting, Mark Ray and I will be picking a grand prize winner and two runners up to give some awesome Future Ready Librarian prizes!  
All three of the winners will receive one of the awesome NEW Future Ready Librarian t-shirts that we had at ISTE this year! 
To enter, please post your Future Ready Librarian Framework project to this Padlet.  This will be the place that all of them will be curated for now and at the end of this contest, I will post them all together so we can see the work everyone puts into this project.
You have until August 31, 2018 to post your entry and we will announce the winner on September 5, 2018 at the Follett webinar, In Case You Missed It: What We Learned At The Future Ready Librarian Leadership Summit.

We hope that you show off your creativity and ideas to make the Future Ready Librarian Framework interactive and even more awesome too!
