Tuesday, March 20, 2012

Chief Technology Officer, Novare Library Services
With our rapidly increasing and instantaneous access to information, it can be difficult to help people slice through the “data smog” and become fluent with information while critically assessing its value and purpose. This workshop introduces a variety of technical resources and research tools, and provides tips to help make learning more meaningful, engaging, and relevant, with the ultimate goal of providing learners with opportunities to create something new and exciting. Learn how to provide more visibility to library resources via Wikipedia; utilize real-time web/mobile services such as Twitter to share and discover content while connecting with others; understand how to manage digital identity; inspire learners to become active participants in our era of continuous techno- logical change; and collaborate within new social media spaces such as Google+ and SlideShare. The end goal is to help learners enrich their lives by constructing a personal learning environment, online or face-to-face, that is conducive to information discovery, sharing, and lifelong learning.
