Are you interested in creating conversations in your library to facilitate student learning and teacher collaboration? Do you see your library as more than just a place of information objects? Do you want your library to be about experiences and not just “stuff” in the library?
If so, I would like to invite you to my session, Not Just Another Brick in the Wall: Engaging 21st Century Learning Through Participatory School Librarianship, that will take place on 11/06/09 from 2:15PM to 3:30PM. It will be located in room 213BC of the Charlotte Convention Center. We will be engaging in our conversations about how to create conversations for formal learning and the AASL Standards for 21st Century Learners as well as creating conversations with your library community using traditional and Library 2.0 tools.
Right now, the final presentation materials are under wraps, but they will be posted by 10PM Tuesday evening, November 3, 2009 at http://theunquietlibrarian.wikispaces.com/aasl2009. Once posted, you will be able to preview the slidedeck and presentation links as well as a Google Moderator session I have created as a medium for you to pose questions.
You are encouraged to bring a laptop to the session, but it is not required. You may also want to bring your cellphone for a fun activity as well as your creative energy for some hands-on activities I hope to do with you as a guest in the session.
If you plan to Tweet my session, please use the #aasl2009 hashtag as well as this hashtag just for my session: #plaasl2009. I hope to see you there!

Man oh man I wish I could go. Say hi to Mary Ann if you see her! And Doug Johnson too! At least I’ll be able to look up the presentations online…
Can’t wait! I’m just worried that your session will be filled to overflowing and I won’t get there early enough for a seat.
