It’s not that far down the road (or perhaps slightly up? slightly east?) from where I am now, making it one of the very few conferences I’ve been able to attend while sleeping in my own bed.
Besides vendors, the opportunity to meet with friends and like-minded colleagues will be refreshing. Not that the teachers here are a problem, but they’re not librarians so having certain discussions is not an option. Nearly three months in I’ve got a decent grasp of what needs to happen and what the future could be both in terms of students and teacher training, resources and technology, print and digital, etc..
Over the next few days, I’m looking for solutions and suggestions to help manage that change. Stay tuned!
