Kathy Schrock’s new “PD in Action” Webinar Series

Kathy Schrock–THE Kathy Schrock –has partnered up with folks from Follett and the edweb.net community to offer a series of information literacy webinars specifically for librarians.  The first is next Wednesday, October 19.  You have to be a member of edweb, but it’s a free and simple registration.

This is from the notification I received from edweb:

Join Kathy for the first webinar in a new professional development series on edWeb, PD in Action.  The free webinar “Resources for Information Literacy” will showcase information literacy models to meet the needs of various grade levels. Having a standardized model across the curriculum is important so students understand that information literacy is not just something done in one content area.  The webinar will provide some strategies and online resources to help students determine their information need, strategies they can use to locate information easily, the process of evaluation of the validity and usefulness of the information found, and how to organize and communicate information and ideas.

Here’s the line-up.  Join the group, and mark your calendars!
