RILINK Summer Conference 2021

Day 1, July 13

9:00- 10:00 Keynote

As schools scrambled to address learning needs during a pandemic, leadership in digital curation was critical. Librarians who were prepared to gather, organize and make sense of digital resources and workflow tools became even more indispensable. Their virtual libraries became headquarters for high quality learning.

Come to this session to help develop a crosswalk of the RI School Library Curriculum Guide Standards and the newly adopted RI Core Standards. Through this activity, participants will become more familiar with both resources and show they are educational leaders who support student achievement.

Presenters: Mary Moen and Marianne Mirando

Learn how a new tool can help school librarians bridge the gap between their library and classroom instruction. Bring your library content into the Gale in Context For Educators tool to find, curate, and teach in the classroom. Collaborate in the resource with teachers in this process.
