One of the experiences that I will not be able to attend this fall is the National Summit on Re-imagining the Design of the K-12 Library which will be held September 23-25, 2011 at the Lovett School in Atlanta, Georgia.
Organized by Laura Deisley, Director of 21st Century Learning at Lovett, and Christian Long, this event promises to be challenge notions and begin to guide participants towards solutions that they can begin to implement in their own buildings.
The advisory team is very impressive and includes librarians Helene Bowers, Buffy Hamilton, and Joyce Valenza, technologists such as Lucy Gray and David Jakes, and members of OWPP including Trung Le, who is the architect of the our new Upper School which will open next month.
If you cannot attend, there are plans to have a virtual component that you can participate in.
Check it out. Knowing the planning team, this event will be hot.
