Watch this free ALA TechSource hourlong webinar, Organization 2.0: Building the Participatory Library with John Blyberg and Meredith Farkas.
Parents are faced with ever-expanding media options to share with their children, and many children’s librarians are beginning to incorporate apps and eBooks for young children into their collections and programming to satisfy the growing need for reader's advisory in the app space ("Appvisory"). This webinar will explore why and how incorporating digital media into our collections and programming is now an essential part of children’s librarianship, and tips and tricks for translating traditional storytelling techniques into the digital realm.
The Indianapolis Public Library has developed a hands on technology lab for early learners to develop literacy skills in a technology based environment. The Digital Littles lab contains technology tools such as cameras, video cameras, and laptops that assist librarians in developing storytimes and other activities. The mobile lab is designed to travel mostly to library locations, but can also be transported to schools, day cares, and other organizations. The lab is the library’s way of reaching out to the community and making technology more accessible.

Accidental technology trainers find themselves unexpectedly responsible for technology training—in labs, classrooms, or one-on-one with users or staff. Every library is providing some kind of technology training these days. Even if you are just answering questions “on-the-fly,” an organized approach will result in better service and save time and money.
