Between a dropbox and a hard place - ASLA 2013


Published on

The digital and the physical have obviously created new challenges and opportunities for libraries and learning. The tools at our fingertips are diverse, networked, versatile, and present new ways to conceptualize content. These tools are not only changing our work, but it is still only emerging how we use physical spaces in this context; and the innovations just keep coming! This closing keynote will bring together some of the ideas from the Conference, as well as experiences from programs at the State Library of Victoria and other institutions to explore what it means to integrate technology and pedagogy effectively. This will lead into the considerations for school leadership, how it connects vision with practice, what it means to educate young people in the world of cloud computing, and the implications for the continued growth and expertise of the teaching profession.
