Hong Kong 21C Learning Conference 16-18 February

Need an excuse to come to Hong Kong?
21C Learning Conference 16th Feb to Saturday 18th February 2012 have called for submission of presentations  http://21clhk.org/.
The theme is “Leading and Learning in Digital Schools”
Last year was the first year the Library & Information Literacy strand was offered and we had some great workshops and presentations.
It would be great if we had a number of submissions across the broad range of the services & skills we offer to our learners.
The conference is tech and digitally centered, so we need to offer workshops and presentations that reflect this.
Some possibilities to think about…
What are you doing in your every day practice that you could share?
How are you using ipads in the library or even across the school?
How are you adopting e-readers and e-books?
How are you working with teachers?
What excellent tool or app have you used to great success to promote reading?
How are you best using databases?
How do you use the OPAC to help connect students with your resources?
What about your library website?
How have you organized to be part of the digital team at your school?
Do you use twitter? Diigo? Google reader MS word citation tool? Easy Bib? Noodletools? Can you share what you do with them?
Have you looked at the 21st century Librarians manifesto? How are you doing? Can you share your journey? http://informationfluency.wikispaces.com/You+know+you%27re+a+21st+century+librarian+if+.+.+.
What about copyright, creative commons and fair use?
Do you use AR in your school – how and why? and what are the benefits…
How are you promoting second language learning through your library and digital means?
How are you learning yourself through digital means?
How are you using youtube? Are you making video tutorials for your students or finding ones that have already been done?
These are just some ideas – you may be doing other things, please consider submitting what you are doing in your best practice. Workshops are generally well received where people are hands on, however, sharing of what you are doing gives ideas to others. Please consider submitting something to share through the above link to the conference page.
Registration will open on November 15th at the same link for people who are not presenting.
