How do trends in education such as "bring your own device," social networking and collaborative learning spaces influence how students learn and how educators teach? In what ways can school librarians take advantage of these technologies and the interest in using them in K-12 education to support student learning long-term? Learn how public policy shapes K-12 education by attending the interactive session "National Public Policy, School Libraries, and Technology."

The session is hosted by the ALA's Office for Information Technology Policy (OITP). Participants will hear from experts about current trends in technology and education as they relate to school libraries. Speakers include Michelle Luhtala, department chair of the New Canaan High School Library and Lisa Perez, network library coordinator of the Chicago Public Schools Department of Libraries. The session will be moderated by Stacy Lickteig, who is a school librarian for Omaha Public Schools and serves as a member of the OITP Advisory Committee.
