Embracing an attitude of discovery is one of the keys to 'keeping up' with technology and kids. You might not know the most popular virtual world at the moment or what kids are really doing when they get online. Through this webinar you will learn tips to get started discovering what is online for kids, and learn what other libraries are doing to keep kids safe and information literate through technology. Then you'll be on the road to helping guide them through their lifelong journey.
We'll highlight best practices for libraries working with children and technology. Special guest Kelly Czarnecki is a Technology Education Librarian at PLCM's ImaginOn, a public library that is also a partnership with the Children's Theatre of Charlotte. She received Library Journal's Mover and Shaker award in 2007 for working with youth and technology. She writes a monthly column called the Gaming Life for School Library Journal. Kelly enjoys trying new things and making those 'aha!' moments happen with others when new things are discovered. ImaginOn's mission is to "bring stories to life through extraordinary experiences that challenge, inspire and excite young minds."
Take 30 minutes out of your day to learn from the experiences of others and get something started. This is a part of the MaintainIT (http://www.maintainitproject.org) Cookbook webinar series where contributors to the Cookbooks share their insights, their secrets, and what you can do to get started with projects like theirs.
