The NEW ISTE and Future Ready Librarians Crosswalk Is Here!

One of the most exciting announcements during the ISTE Conference in June was the announcement of the NEW Future Ready Librarian Crosswalk. 
ISTE teamed up with Follett and Future Ready Librarians to create a crosswalk showing the relationship between the FRL framework and the ISTE Standards for Educators.  
On the new ISTE Librarian site that was also introduced at ISTE, you will find the Future Ready Librarians Crosswalk right on the home page. 
 As stated in the Crosswalk,

With the goal of preparing future ready digital-age learners, school librarians can use this crosswalk to identify new ways to lead, teach and support students and teachers. 

In the crosswalk, you will find the interconnections between the Future Ready LibrariansTM Framework and the ISTE Standards for Educators. These two frameworks support and complement each other, each deepening the other because they share the same goal: dynamic, equitable digital age learning for all students. Because the Future Ready framework takes a high level view, while the Educator Standards are more granular, the specific, related portions of the Future Ready indicators are highlighted to make the interconnects clearer. 
Use this framework to guide and deepen the work you do as a librarians or library media specialist or to rethink, redesign and grow the role in your school or district.

As you can see, this new crosswalk is going to be one more thing that will help us guide the work we do as Future Ready Librarians and those who support librarians, libraries, teachers and students.

It will make a difference.

I hope you visit and bookmark today.  

Thank you to everyone at the Alliance for Excellent Education, Follett and ISTE who has worked so hard to bring us such a meaningful and important place for librarians.
