Over the past two years I’ve been working closely within the library community about digital content for children. I’ve attended conferences, participated in the brilliant @LittleeLit think tank and even co-created training modules to pilot for professional development in multiple states.
But until this past month, after attending the exceptional American Library Association (ALA) 2014 annual conference in Las Vegas, I worried that librarians would not catch up in time. I feared that the digital shift towards apps, tablets, gamification, transmedia storytelling and new media formats was simply moving too fast. For the first few years after the iPad arrived, it seemed possible that the library community may have gotten on board a little too late to be at the front of this crazy digital train. Boy, was I wrong!
