NCompass Live: Teaching Digital Literacy in Your Library - Online 

Description


We all know that librarians are the information superheroes of the world. Itís only natural that we would hold the key to digital literacy!

When the topic is raised, people think of everything from learning e-readers, to practicing web safety, or building a website. This is all part of learning how to find, use, create and share digital content. The fun part is that digital literacy is always going to mean different things to different people. The trick is to find free resources library patrons will want to use.

This webinar will help you prepare to teach digital literacy in your library. Tune in to find out:

  • What is digital literacy?
  • How digital literacy is evolving
  • Using free, existing resources to save time
  • Deciding what to teach in your library
  • Catering to a wide variety of patron needs
  • Working with local schools

Itís time to put on your Digital Literacy cape and prepare your library for the future!
