Are schools engaging today’s digital learner and empowering them with the skills and knowledge demanded by universities and employers in a global economy? As a library professional and educator, your interaction with the 21st century learner may hold the key to each student’s success in an increasingly competitive world.

Join moderator Michelle Begora, Program Director at Follett Software Company and a panel of library experts to find out:

* What new skill sets are important to move the librarian role forward.
* How new library technology is re-engaging digital learners.
* Why librarians are ‘information managers’ who help students become competitive and competent in today’s world.
* How librarians can improve student achievement by increasing the library-classroom connection.
* How to integrate social networking to bring students back to the library.

Who Will Benefit: Librarians, library media specialists, administrators, technology professionals and other district stakeholders and school-based administrators who help set the foundation for achievement.
