The Growing Wisconsin Readers New Media Training was a great, intensive, hands-on opportunity to learn how to accomplish this within the framework of what we already do. We gained the knowledge of how to move our libraries forward in the digital age, what pedagogical research says about media use with children, how to use the apps appropriately, and how to curate apps just as you would any other collection. If you are considering adding tablets to your library, look for a media mentor near you!
