CANCELLED Creating Effective Videos and Screencasts: A Library Learning Video and Screencasts BootCamp (LearnRT) [$] Ticketed event Caesars Palace
Milano III
Description :

LearningRT is proud to present a practical learning delivery skills bootcamp that will enrich your trip to the 2014 Annual Sessions. Our facilitator, Royce Kitts of Washburn University, will show you how to create effective video learning content from the “why are we making this” stage to “this is how you make it” stage. As a participant, you will work your way through the entire process from project design and objectives to shooting, recording and editing your video. Along the way you will encounter best practices, learning object development skills and effective methods to promote your newly created learning objects.

You will be shooting your own movie, so you should have your own device capable of recording video, a laptop (with either Windows Movie Maker or iMovie,) and be able to transfer the video you shoot from your device to your computer. Participants will leave with an authentic hands on experience able to create projects at their own library. Royce Kitts is currently Coordinator of the Carnegie Education Library at Washburn University, former director of the Tonganoxie (KS) Public Library and past president of the Kansas Library Association.

CANCELLED The Pros and Cons of Coming in 3rd Place Program Las Vegas Convention Center
S224
Description :

While adults have places that are their "third place," a home away from home, few places in the community offer youth the same option. The school library can and should act as a third place where students find a place to be themselves away from home and the constraints of the classroom. This presentation offers suggestions on how to advocate for school libraries and make the most of what you have to encourage others to invest in the library, including promoting resources (flaunt what you've got), giving students "ownership" in the library and giving potential investors complete communications.

CANCELLED: Now Showing @ ALA: 16 Acres Other Las Vegas Convention Center
N242
Description :

The rebuilding of ground zero is one of the most architecturally, politically, and emotionally complex urban renewal projects in American history. From the beginning, the effort has been fraught with controversy, delays and politics. The struggle has encompassed eleven years, nineteen government agencies, a dozen projects and over $20 billion.
16 Acres is the story of how and why this historic project got built. At the heart of the story is the dramatic tension between noblest intentions, the desire of everyone involved to "get it right," and the politics, hubris, ego and ideology that is the bedrock of New York City. What does it say about us as New Yorkers, as Americans?
As with all great urban projects, from the Pyramids to Rome's Colleseum to Rockefeller Center, a small group of powerful people will dictate the outcome. With inside access to the project and these key players, 16 Acres tells the story behind the headlines. Who are these men and women? What motivates them? How will their personalities shape the project? And, ultimately, will it succeed? The film also follows the dramatic rush to complete the memorial in time, and the key players as they prepare to converge on the site for the 10th anniversary.

N232
Description :

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.
