We’re presenting an ALSC program at ALA in Las Vegas! Here’s the description (many thanks to Tess Prendergast for putting it together!)
Proposed Program Title:
The Apps are All Right! Exploring the Role of Apps in Children’s and Teen Services
Tentative Program Description:
Designed as a primer for children’s and teen librarians, this session offers a dynamic overview of the place of the app as a new format within our profession. Four panelists will provide relevant research and examples from practice with diverse populations of children and teens. Participants will also be invited to explore the continuously evolving rationale for strengthening the role of the children’s and teen librarian in app recommendation for the communities we serve.
