As digital media plays an increasingly ubiquitous role in our children’s lives, librarians working with children and young people can easily and successfully implement technology in their library programs and provide a fun and creative way to engage their younger patrons.  Why should teachers have all the fun? 

In this workshop, you will discover how technology can enhance and rejuvenate your children’s programs, and bring them into the 21st century—the possibilities are only limited by your imagination.  In this session, you will learn effective ways to integrate multimedia and information literacy in PowerPoint to allow children to experience library programs like story-time, rhymes, booktalks, and book club discussions on a richer level, in addition to learning how to create a blog designed to inspire creativity in children.

 

Learning Objectives:

After attending this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Design a visually appealing PowerPoint presentation to engage kids of all ages
  • Integrate online content to help children make real-world connections to books in print
  • Find, insert, and animate clip art and free images from the web in your PowerPoint
  • Insert/embed video clips, websites, and online resources in your PowerPoint
  • Create interactive games in your PowerPoint to spice up your program
  • Create and customize a blog especially designed for parents and children
