Libraries Supporting Teacher Collaboration, Student Voice and School Design

This two-day statewide library conference is sponsored by the Hawaii State Department of Education (HIDOE), Office of Curriculum and Instructional Design, School Library Services, in partnership with the Pacific Literacy Consortium.

The purpose of the conference is to equip HIDOE school library staff with tools, strategies and resources that focus on the three high impact strategies of teacher collaboration, student voice and school design to transform school library programs.

Professional development, training and program planning opportunities that grow school library staff knowledge and skills that best support information literacy, pre-k literacy skills, early literacy skills, brain-based learning, and computer science will be provided. Library professional development is aligned to the American Association for School Librarians (AASL) 2017 National School Library Standards and Future Ready Librarians Framework.

We all know that creative freedom can empower our students, and we know how important it is to encourage more creativity in the classroom. But, how can educators go about fostering a creative environment? And what are meaningful ways that schools can integrate creative tools to enrich the learning experience for kids and their community? Join the Buncee team for this session to learn how technologies like Buncee can play a roll in empowering students as creators by providing choices for expression, in turn increasing student confidence and enhancing content engagement. In this session we'll share learning strategies used by classrooms for integrating Buncee, as well as key takeaways from their experience.
