The 13th annual SLJ Leadership Summit: Confronting Our Literacy Crisis will bring together a dynamic group of school librarians, education leaders, and tech innovators, as well as authors, publishers, and vendor stakeholders to discuss how to take on a greater leadership role in overcoming the current literacy crisis—from teaching about and defending quality information over Fake News to fostering digital literacy and learning in these ever changing technological times.
The 2017 Summit will surface current research about information literacy and showcase leaders who are accelerating their efforts to help shape a more proactive and impactful approach to this key work. Attendees will gain insight into the evolving and critical role of librarians in this ecosystem, models and tools to take back to their own schools, and vast informal learning from peer leaders from across the country.
