Jennifer LaGarde, AKA Library Girl, Visits School Library Systems
Becoming Data Super Heroes!
Surviving the Zombie Librarian Apocalypse!
Survival tips recommended by Library Girl:
- Defy expectations. "Care more about growing readers than growing reading scores."
- Kids first. Everything else second. "Kids deserve to be engaged in meaningful work."
- Embrace change. Our students are creating primary sources - there is an MLA format for tweets.
- Be a voice for your students (not stuff).
- Prepare students for their world, not yours. "Technology must be used to engage kids on content creation." Our students already know how to consume information, must teach them how to create.
