Engaging Educators with Digital Collections: Digital Libraries and Resources in the K-12 Classroom

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
In this session, attendees will learn about the challenges K-12 teachers face when approaching digital collections and resources for use in the classroom, and best practices for supporting educators when incorporating digital collections into lesson plans and units. At Brooklyn Public Library, we have added programming to support teachers in their efforts to remain at the forefront of digital literacy and innovative lesson planning. Projects like our Teacher Lab and educator workshop series provide a space for educators, trainers, and coordinators to share their stories and brainstorm solutions. These teacher trainings and professional development opportunities remain key factors in increasing usage among educators.
