I was pleased to have been invited to speak at this event held by IPD last week for school librarians. The day focused on digital natives, and looked at this from a number of different perspectives; from an IT/media manager at the school; a school librarian; product suppliers; an independent consultant; and myself, a university librarian.
I decided to focus on the transition between school and university and how school librarians can prepare students for university life. I took a slightly different approach to the presentation, and decided to take a journey with a typical student through the first month or so of university, and at each milestone consider what he needs to do and how school librarians could help him prepare for that.
If you’re interested in reading more about the rest of the day, I wrote a review of the event last week.
