Hey, Future Ready Librarians... It's Time For Challenge #2, Future Focused Conversations!

Hey, friends. 

It's time for the Future Ready Librarians Challenge #2, Future Focused Conversations! 

As shared on the site, 

This Future Ready Librarians® Challenge is focused on building instructional collaboration and your skills as an instructional partner as you lead, teach, and support in schools transitioning from remote to hybrid learning. In addition to using the familiar Future Ready Librarians Framework, this challenge will also feature two other Future Ready Schools resources to help sort out the present and plan for the future.

  • Planning for High-Quality Remote Learning uses the Future Ready Framework as a way to examine current challenges and considerations as schools plan for both remote and hybrid learning.
  • SMART Goal Setting Guide is an easy-to-use tool to help educators identify and define Specific, Measurable, Actionable, Relevant, and Time-based goals for their programs and professional practice.

But you won’t do it alone! Recognizing the value of professional partnership and instructional collaboration, you will complete this challenge with another librarian peer, so you can help and support one another as you plan for 2021. In addition to sharing your own stories and plans, you will also practice your professional listening and collaboration skills. And true to Future Ready Librarian Challenges, these activities are still bite-sized -- 20-30 minutes max!

Let's kick it off with...

Activity 1: Who's My Library Buddy?  
On the site, you will find What is the Challenge?
Why is this important? and...
...What do I do? 

My goal today is to sit down and do Activity 1.  I plan to do this with my sister and library buddy, Heather Fox, who is also a teacher librarian in Iowa.  I can't wait to share what we talk about and share with all of you. 

And I can't wait to hear what you and your library buddy do too! 

I hope you join us for this Future Ready Librarians Challenge, friends.  Let's grow and explore our librarianship together.
