In 2013, HourofCode.org was launched and has been growing every year. At King Middle School, all students in grades 6, 7, & 8 participate in the Computer Science Education Week in December with their science teachers. Doing Scratch, Khan Academy sessions, or Hour of Code, gets old for 8th graders since they have done it the last 2 years. For the past 2 years, I have collaborated with the 8th grade science teachers to offer a day of more hands on coding. Stations using Ozobots, Spheros, Lego, Perler Beads, Made with Code, Snap Circuits, and Bloxels had proven successful in showing students a bit more ways code can create and work. In this session, I will explain the collaboration aspect and then have stations set up for attendees to do some hands on coding.

Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Our youngest learners are eager to explore the many wonders of our world: the interesting things, cool places, and dynamic people they might one day encounter. It’s long been said that literature should serve as both a mirror, allowing readers to see reflections of their own identities, and also a window, enabling readers to meet others with alternate perspectives, experiences, personalities, character traits, and characteristics. Through the curation and sharing of literature and information resources, school librarians can prepare our youngest learners to participate as global citizens in this vast and glorious universe. In this session librarians will interactively probe and scrutinize literature selections for young children and consider the multiple ways we might diversify collections.

Free Reading Resources for Students with Print & Physical Disabilities
Limited Capacity seats available

Come to this session and learn about free organizations that work under a copyright exemption—the Chafee Amendment—which grants nonprofit organizations the ability to make books available to people with print disabilities without publisher permission. There are many students with IEP and 504 plans in schools that could greatly benefit from these resources. The items can easily be downloaded via an app or in some cases, even delivered for free to their home with a special playing device. As librarians, we need to spread the word about these resources to all patrons that could take advantage. Come to this session and learn all about them.

Trauma Sensitive School Libraries
Limited Capacity filling up

Many of the learners we work with struggle with fear as a result of trauma or Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) manifesting into struggles in academics, absenteeism, social challenges, and anxiety. Learners are resilient and given the right environmental conditions and interventions, the symptoms associated with trauma may be reduced.School libraries are in a unique position in the school setting to provide this sort of environment for students. Because the school library serves all students in the school, it is likely that a proportion of our students have experienced trauma. We can develop long-term, supportive relationships with students and create spaces in which they might find support, understanding, and healing. This session will examine what to look for in identifying learners who have experienced trauma in their lives and ways we can support them in becoming more resilient.

Teaching Media Literacy in a Post-Truth World

Why are most digital citizenship lessons inadequate in cracking filter bubbles? Can school librarians reach students before they become the misinformed news consumers of tomorrow? What factors (including neurological) cause people to be vulnerable to believing falsehoods - and how can school librarians hope to counter these factors? What does the future of “fake news” hold? What methods of spreading misinformation (e.g. memes, deepfakes) pose special challenges to media literacy? How can library media specialists and journalists work together to restore a healthy respect for journalism? How can we frame news literacy issues better so that we have the most impact on this generation and future generations?

This session attempts to tackle these and other essential questions.
