Registration is open for the Summer Librarian Tech Camp. It has gone back from a two day camp, to just one day out of the summer. This year it will be held on August 21st. The keynote will be Chris Sperry from Project Look Sharp who will focus on News and Media Literacy.
Project LookSharp is an outreach project at Ithaca College that provides training and materials for educators to integrate media literacy and critical thinking into their existing curriculum. As the media atmosphere is getting more and more misunderstood, it is imperative that our students are given the skills and resources to navigate the vast amounts of false information, as well as the vast amounts of real information, and the ability to discern which is which.
Project Look Sharp always does a fantastic job and we encourage you to attend.
There is a call for proposals for 45-minute workshop sessions, so if you feel inclined to share with your colleagues a topic that might fit here, we encourage you to do this as well.
Happy National Library Week!
