Hobbs to Moderate Online Event for the American Library Association
December 11, 2012
Renee Hobbs hosted two events for the American Library Association to explore digital literacy in and out of libraries. On December 11, we hosted a conversation to explore the topic of measuring digital literacy: outcomes and assessment featuring Dr. Julie Coiro, a Professor at the University of Rhode Island and Karen Hanson BTOP Program Officer from the NTIA. And on November 14, 2012 ALA’s Office for Information Technology Policy (OITP) and its Digital Literacy Task Force hosted a conversation where we explored the role of libraries in supporting and deepening digital literacy skills development for students, the general public and colleagues in other professions.
MEASURING DIGITAL LITERACY: OUTCOMES AND ASSESSMENT
CREATING A CULTURE OF LEARNING
On November 14, 2012, Renee Hobbs hosted a one-hour webinar on Google Hangouts, entitled, Creating a Culture of Learning: How Librarians Keep up with Digital Media and Technology. In this program, speakers looked at the dramatic shifts in formal and informal learning and civic engagement because of the rapidly changing technology landscape, every information professional must be prepared to ensure meaningful access and skills development to our communities so all may fully participate in the digital age.
