ALSC/AASL Collaborative Community Forum: Archived Webcast Access

From the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC):

“On Thursday, March 23, 2017, the ALSC Board of Directors and ALSC President Vice President/President-Elect Nina Lindsay and the American Association of School Librarians (AASL) co-hosted an  ALSC Community Forum live chat on the topic of digital literacy, digital citizenship for children in libraries.

This forum addressed the questions: with library and education funding and policy in question, who is teaching children information literacy–where, and how?  From “fake news,” to new privacy concerns, to government “data rescue” and the threat to intellectual freedom with loss of data and access to broadband,  what on-the-ground strategies can library staff in public and school libraries employ to prepare children to be digitally literate citizens?

This ALSC Community Forum was jointly hosted by ALSC’s Intellectual Freedom Committee and AASL Directors and the live forum was open to both divisions’ members. Due to the collaborative nature of the forum, the archived webcast and transcript will be made available to both members and non-members.

Members were invited to read the below resources in preparation for this discussion:
