Digital Transformation

Liberty Public Schools, Secondary Library Media Team

Session Goal

The goal is to share our team's experience of a one-to-one/digital transformation including triumphs, challenges, and resources and create an opportunity for participants to collaborate around their own situations/experiences.

Instruction/Collab Highlight

With one-to-one, the library is no longer constrained by physical parameters. There is an enormous opportunity to reach patrons no matter the time of day. Instruction truly becomes point of need and can be repeated as often as is necessary. The key is to move forward steadily on items that will reach the most learners. Trying to re-make your curriculum/program in a brief period of time is detrimental; slow, steady growth should be the goal. Collaboration remains difficult, but offers unique ways to share and grow.

Collection Development/ Readers' Advisory Highlight

Our thinking is continuing to evolve as we work to meet the needs of students and staff in a digital learning environment. We are challenged by the ever-changing availability of resources so we fulfill needs through multiple vendors and formats to meet our information requirements. Specifically, we use OverDrive, FollettShelf, Gale Virtual Reference Library, and databases to provide digital content for our students and staff.

Professional Development Highlight

Professional development has been so vital as we have made a digital transformation. While the biggest staff challenges have been transitioning to a digital learning environment, grading/giving feedback digitally, and being overwhelmed, following an EdCamp/Unconference format has been a positive way to support all staff and provide opportunities for growth.
