There’s a whole lot of learning going on out there, but I’ve learned that it’s not all that easy to find.

For the last few years I’ve tried to keep up with it myself and help my students and colleagues keep up as well. I decided it was time to pull it all together. Here’s a first go at an infographic collecting some of the major professional learning opportunities out there for school librarians.

Please let me know what I missed and please feel free to embed and share with friends.

Just-for-Me Training by Screencasting - American Libraries

Just-for-Me Training by Screencasting - American Libraries | School Libraries and the importance of remaining current. | Scoop.it

By Meredith Farkas:
Librarians in all types of libraries provide training and instruction. Whether it's for staff or patrons, the timing of the training is usually critical.

 

"Even when we get the timing right, infrequent use of a tool on which people were trained will lead to forgetting. [...]

Screencasting software, technology that creates a video of activity on the computer screen along with the user’s narration, is sometimes used to solve this problem. The software allows a trainer to create videos that show specific processes within a web system so that users who have gone through a training can refresh their memory with a video later on."
