The Main Event:
Cooperative Children's Book Center (CCBC) librarians Merri Lindgren and Megan Schliesman will talk about Great New Books for Children, and Great New Books for Teens, highlighting selected books from CCBC Choices 2017.
Books included in CCBC Choices 2017 will be available for hands-on examination.
A single copy of CCBC Choices 2017 will be sent to each public library in Wisconsin in mid to late March, and we expect to have additional copies on hand for workshop attendees.
The Cooperative Children's Book Center (CCBC), located on the UW-Madison campus, serves as a children's literature library for adults, a book examination center, and a research library.
- It's Tablet Time!
This will be an interactive session on using tablet technology for STEAM learning, patron training, and information services.
Presenters: Peg Burington (Director, Waupaca Area Public Library) and Sue Abrahamson, Children's Librarian (Waupaca Area Public Library)
- The Ozobot
(The afternoon presentation will be a repeat of the morning session.)
The Ozobot is a powerful tiny robot that expands STEM and computer science learning through a collection of game based activities and digital apps. Using simple color-based programming, the Ozobot can be used with paper and markers or with a digital app. This inexpensive robot is a great tool for introducing young children to robotics but can also be used in more complicated applications with teens. This session will be hands-on as participants will be given the chance to play and learn!
Presenter: Terry Ehle (Youth Services Coordinator, Lester Public Library, Two Rivers)
This workshop is co-sponsored by the Manitowoc-Calumet Library System, Nicolet Federated Library System, Outagamie Waupaca Library System, and Winnefox Library System.
