What is the value added of school libraries going forward? Librarians are a powerful tool for hacking change in the culture and changing practice of a school environment. Explore ways that librarians can be change agents and how they can facilitate and address such issues as: equity, access, social justice, informal and self-directed learning (free-range learning), meaningful student communication products, digital workflow and the development of new literacies. A rapid fire presentation followed by Q&A will explore trends and potential partnerships for librarians and school leadership.
