Academic

Capturing Ask college librarians how prepared they think incoming freshmen are for college-level work, and their answers are sadly consistent: today’s students aren’t prepared. Bridging that gap is a common interest for OhioLINK, Ohio’s academic library consortium, and INFOhio, Ohio’s PreK-12 digital library. Drawing on their 20-year history of working together–along with public libraries and the State Library of Ohio–to cost-effectively provide research resources to all Ohioans, OhioLINK and INFOhio are now investigating the next step. Using a common tool–EDS–but two different approaches, OhioLINK and INFOhio are transforming research with search and discovery and helping ease the transition to college for Ohio’s students. Join the Executive Directors to learn the similarities and differences between their two approaches and how the lessons they have learned along the way can help other states in their quest to ensure their students are college ready.

A Library in Your Pocket- Connecting students to texts
Sponsored by Overdrive

Academic

Our classrooms were once limited by the things we could physically bring to the room; the pictures on the walls, the toys and objects in plastic bins, and the books on our shelves.

We teach in a time of great opportunity.  From our classrooms, we can tour the Louvre, dive the Great Barrier Reef, and roam around Mars. It is in this spirit of connectivity that the Pleasant Valley School District has opened up a world of texts to its students through the use of an e-book library. By connecting students with books “on-demand,” PVSD has provided students with (nearly) unlimited access to the most popular fiction and engaging non-fiction. Students can read at school, out and about, or at home. PVSD has even used the digital library to provide professional development texts to teachers. This session will highlight the goals that led to the “opening” of our library, along with the strategies and decisions we’ve made to maximize the value of this endless possibility.

StatBase: Open source data management for libraries

AcademicAcademic

The Newport News Public Library System’s Digital Services Team will provide an interactive demonstration of StatBase http://nnpls.libguides.com/StatBase, a free data gathering and display tool for library use. The team will detail the open source software development approach and detail the outputs of the project. StatBase was released for free to the public in March of 2014 via SourceForge http://sourceforge.net/projects/statbase/. Since that time, the NNPLS staff have been working on StatBase v.2 – a dashboard-like enhancement to the core platform distribution. Join us for an early preview of StatBase v.2, scheduled for release via SourceForge in 2015.

Who’s Afraid of the Internet? Digital Literacy, Corporate Data-Mining, and Government Surveillance

AcademicAcademicAcademic

This session will discuss the challenges of promoting digital adoption and digital literacy in the post-Snowden era of widespread reports of government and corporate surveillance of internet traffic. It will discuss teaching techniques to distinguish well-founded skepticism from unfounded skepticism and helping digital learners do a cost benefit analysis in a learning environment based on respect and consent. The session hopes to touch on interpreting concepts like “free”, “open”, “private”, “commercial”, and “non-commercial” in their digital context, and conclude with some practical resources for increasing online privacy (DuckDuckGo, Disconnect.me, and others)

Implementing New Digital Strategies in Response to a Community Emergency: The Queens Library Post Super-storm Sandy

AcademicAcademic

In October of 2012, Super-storm Sandy devastated the Rockaways. Queens Library stepped up to provide critical crisis information services in the weeks that followed. Among the most requested service was access to online information as thousands of Queens residents lost both connectivity as well as their digital technology in the storm’s aftermath.  When Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Google combined to donate 5,000 Google Tablets to Queens Library for use in those affected areas, the library stepped up. But how to respond when broadband access was scarce or not available? QPL used this lack of Wi-Fi access as a design inspiration and a springboard for innovation. QPL built a tablet platform loaded with Queens Library content– useful with or without Wi-Fi. Today library customers in and beyond Queens’s storm affected areas have access to curated, practical resources with a special focus on resources that aid their economic viability.  Lessons learned from this work should spark new thinking about the central role of public libraries in community informatics and disaster assistance and recovery. This presentation will outline how Queens Library developed a proprietary interface platform preloaded with specific community resources and customized content to assist  the community in finding information about disaster relief, housing, jobs, education, community health, and immigration information. Queens Library received the 2014 ALA Library of the Future Award for its tablet interface.

Collaboration and Innovation

Bridging the K12-College Information Literacy Gap

AcademicAcademic

For students to succeed academically and in life, they need to be information literate: having the ability to locate, select, evaluate, use, manage, communicate, and generate information. Librarians are information professionals who provide physical and intellectual access to information. PK-20 librarians, in particular, serve as knowledgeable facilitators in helping students and staff become effective users and generators of information. In addition, as information professionals, PK-12 and post-secondary librarians can facilitate the articulation of information literacy as they collaborate with each other and their institutional faculty.

This session provides strategies and resources to strengthen articulated relationships and build information literacy capacity for all stakeholders. The session will explain how to start and maintain relationships between K12 and higher education librarians, specifically because they serve as liaisons to their respective institutions. Farmer will particularly highlight the import and value of resources to be found in the forthcoming AASL/ACRL Information Literacy Toolkit.

Presenter: Dr. Lesley Farmer, Professor at California State University Long Beach, Coordinator of the Librarianship Program

Libraries, Film/Media, Children, and Families: Making Connections

AcademicAcademic

By better understanding how public and school libraries can bring film/media in public and school libraries, the Rhode Island Media Smart Libraries coalition  is aiming to transform children’s and teen library service. We will report on our developing collaboration between school and public librarians and children’s film festivals and other film/media groups. We will offer a progress report on our process of developing a needs assessment to understand how librarians in Rhode Island use film/media in the context of children’s library service. In advancing collaboration with the Providence Children’s Film Festival, we found a distinct gap between the worlds of children’s librarians and children’s media professionals. Learn how public and school librarians are working with library faculty and leaders of a non-profit children’s film festival to bridge that gap and support media literacy.

Successfully Partnering with Small Organizations To Digitize Local Content

AcademicAcademic

Over the past eight years, the Abilene Library Consortium has been building the West Texas Digital Archives, a nearly $5M grant-funded online repository now containing more than 50,000 items of unique historical content from Abilene, Texas and the surrounding region. The project has two goals: to preserve these materials from further degradation; and to simultaneously increase worldwide access by digitization. To say we’ve learned a lot during this project would be an understatement. In this presentation, we share some of the lessons we’ve learned relating to collaborating with small regional cultural heritage organizations to digitize local content.

Creating a Collective Culture of Education: Classroom/Library Partnerships that Support Students’ Academic and  Civic Learning

AcademicAcademic

How can teachers and librarians work together in today’s culture of connected learning to better prepare youth for life inside and outside of school? This presentation will highlight the many ways that digital tools can create opportunities for educators and librarians to work across institutions to support student academic learning and civic engagement.

More than ever before, participatory digital technology is changing the ways young people are socializing, learning, consuming, and producing media products. While we know that new media can offer significant opportunities for authentic learning experiences, as well as new opportunities for civic participation, we also know that simply investing in flashy devices is not a solution to long term educational and social challenges. This panel focuses on thinking about partnerships between teachers, librarians, and local communities to engage students in meaningful learning experiences that utilize digital tools.  The “new culture of learning” (Thomas and Brown, 2011) demands a “new culture of educating,” one that brings together teachers, librarians, and other community members to support innovative learning experiences for students. Our panel will offer ideas about how to forge and sustain librarian/teacher partnerships that address academic concerns such as the Common Core State Standards, but always with student civic life as the central focus.

Hack Your Notebook: Leveraging Libraries for STEM-Literacy Connection

AcademicAcademicAcademic

Creativity and notebooks have a long history. Artists, scientists, writers, engineers, and other people curious about the world use notebooks to think on paper, record information, and express themselves. Despite the rise and reach of smart phones and tablets, we think there’s a reason the notebook persists: nothing beats paper. That doesn’t mean the notebook can’t evolve. Electronics and circuitry can be as expressive and accessible as art supplies or as complex as systems design and prototyping. Hacked notebooks live at this intersection of creative expression and technical expertise.

In this panel conversation, learn how educators, in school and out, are hacking notebooks using paper circuitry components like LED lights and conductive copper tape, arduino boards and sensors, alongside the tools of an artist – pens and paintbrushes – to create powerful designs that embed STEM understanding.  Learn how spaces like libraries and museums played a role in facilitating this work for young people and adults alike, particularly as part of a Hack Your Notebook Day a maker event that occurred in cities around the country during July 2014. And, ultimately, learn how you can hack your own notebook and help others to do the same.

A+ and C++: STEM Education Innovation

AcademicAcademic

Libraries across the globe have the ability to design and deliver the extraordinary, capitalizing on creative partnerships. This presentation will focus on a game-changing vision and strategy for all types of libraries, as well as two of Howard County Library System’s (HCLS) innovative partnerships: A+ Partners in Education (A+), and HiTech, a STEM Education initiative for teens. This approach has transformed HCLS into a renowned educational institution, alongside the region’s schools, colleges, and universities.

A formal countywide partnership among HCLS, the county school system, and the local community college, A+ improves student academic success. Replicated in numerous jurisdictions across the country, A+ is successful due to an established communication network that brings the public library into the schools and the schools into the library.

A new A+ component, HiTech instructors and industry/academic partners teach cutting-edge science, technology, engineering, and math via project-based classes to students, ages 11-18. Subjects include 3D animation, nanotechnology, e-books, game apps, cybersecurity, green energy, and robotics. By leveraging the best technology, teaching tools, and experts to deliver a top-quality STEM education experience, HiTech incorporates an innovative methodology that blends instruction with experiential learning and peer to peer communications. These collaborations capitalize on Howard County’s advantage as home to a number of major STEM-oriented employers and higher education institutions, with many providing leadership and guidance as members of the HiTech Board of Advisors.

Appvisory: Curating and Providing Access to Educational Apps in the Children’s Library

AcademicAcademic

With businesses already jumping at the chance to provide app curation and suggestion services for parents, it’s time librarians asserted ourselves as the most disinterested and helpful guides for parents wishing to learn about the best apps to purchase for their children. The Pasadena Public Library has started a pilot program to address this need by providing iPad storytimes, an after-school Appy Hour for kids and parents, and four iPad stations in the children’s room to enhance our existing offerings of educational games in the library. Through this pilot program, parents and kids are learning how to:-find educational and creative apps for kids; -find apps for FREE-make decisions about screen time; -use iPad apps as a tool to support early literacy and learning in the Common Core.

Join us to learn about how to get similar programs started so that you can position your library as the community’s #1 source for information about the best apps for enhancing a child’s education.

Identifying and Delivering Meta-Literacy Skill Sets to Adult Learners

AcademicAcademic

The Addlestone Library at the College of Charleston and the Center for Student Learning partnered to co-design, sponsor, and market a program of complementary information literacy and study skills offerings based on strategies for implementing the new ACRL Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education http://acrl.ala.org/ilstandards/?page_id=133 in order to build community at the Library. Panelists Jolanda-Pieta van Arnhem (Library), Jannette Finch (Library) and Melissa Hortman (Center for Student Learning) will discuss the program design process, topic selection, marketing strategies, attendance statistics, and assessment of program for the first year. The interdisciplinary team concluded that collaborative approaches to more structured program design requires an organic teaching model that is fluid at every stage, through design, marketing, delivery, and assessment. Co-designing the curriculum helped to update staff skills without overburdening individual departments. Delivering and marketing workshops collaboratively also expanded opportunities for campus outreach and provided opportunities to reach multiple populations.

Bringing A New “Voice” To our Library and School With 3D Printing

AcademicAcademic

When we put a 3D printer into the library and carved out our new Makerspace, little did we know what impact it would have on the entire school community.Through classroom PBL (Project Based Learning) projects, individual passions, and global connections, the students at Van Meter have been inspired to create and collaborate through their 3D printing experiences. Some of our successes? Creating new Olympic symbols and fairy tale super heroes who make a difference in the community. Perhaps our most ‘global ‘ project is  “Banding Together” which has included other schools, students, and educators around the world. These students, by “Banding Together”, created Rainbow Loom Bracelets and were inspired to also create l 3D “Love” charms to go onto the bracelets, The finished products made their way to children in orphanages in India and other places where they were needed. Our small project has had a global impact.
