Speaker: Deborah Owen

We have a crisis of engagement - students feel burdened by standardized tests that drive the teaching, that many check out once. They don’t understand the relevance of the curriculum, and can’t wait to go home to their computers. In this session attendees will learn how to increase student motivation by integrating social media into curriculum, to look beyond the social media tools themselves to the underlying core concepts, and to use these as authentic assessments, and to advocate for the school library as the place where these 21st century skills can be taught in collaboration with classroom teachers.
