Empowering Students As Creators....Watch The NEW Future Ready Librarians Webinar Here!

This week I welcomed my friends Diana Rendina and Traci Chun as we talked about Empowering Students As Creators, one of the gears of the Future Ready Librarian framework.

On June 13, 2017 Future Ready Schools® held a Webinar dealing with how school librarians can support Future Ready Schools® (FRS)? The Future Ready Librarians (FRL) program responds to this challenge by identifying specific ways librarians can lead, teach, and support personalized student learning. The FRL framework is based on research-based components used by FRS.
This webinar examined how librarians can empower students as creators. Library leaders shared 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.
Librarians, district leaders, and all educators are invited to view this webinar to learn more about the FRL program and how Ms. Chun and Ms. Rendina are empowering students as creators.
This webinar is brought to you by FRS and Follett Project Connect.
I know you will find this webinar extremely helpful and inspiring as you empower your students as creators through Makerspaces, creative experiences and projects, and their very own creativity and voice.
You can watch the webinar here.

And remember...this is the third webinar in our Future Ready Librarians webinar series.  You will find the others on the Alliance for Excellent Education here too.

Please put August 15, 2017 at 4:00pm EST on your calendar as we discuss Designing Collaborative Spaces with my friends and Future Ready Librarians Andy Plemmons and Carolyn Foote.  We will share more information on how to register for this webinar soon.
