Future Ready Librarians (FRL) is kicking off its 2018 series of webinars with panelists Elissa Malespina and Joyce Valenza who will take a deep dive into the “curriculum, instruction, and assessment” gear from the Future Ready Schools® (FRS) framework as it relates to the FRL strategy of curating digital tools and resources.

During this webinar, panelists will

  • tell their story of curating digital resources and tools within their role as a Future Ready Librarian;
  • share the importance of leading in the selection, integration, organization; sharing of digital resources and tools to support transformational teaching and learning; and developing the digital curation skills of others; and
  • offer favorite tips, tricks, and tools for curation.

Whether you are a school librarian or district leader, please join FRS to learn more about the power of curating digital resources and how the FRL program is empowering librarians as leaders and innovators.

This webinar is brought to you by FRS and Project Connect from Follett.
