Keynote: The Feat of Reading: Insights from cognitive neuroscience
Limited Capacity seats available

Reading is among the greatest achievements a student accomplishes. The feat of translating scribbles on a page to words and meaning offers readers the ability to expand their emotional, social, cognitive, and linguistic experiences. In this presentation, we will examine how the brain makes reading possible, how the brain differs in readers who struggle, and how the brain can change with effective instruction.

The Power of Picture Books
Limited Capacity seats available

Stories capture our attention at all ages, but the role of the “read-aloud” in library has taken a back seat to 21st century trends & initiatives. Ironically, kids need to hear fiction more than ever. Find out how the brain responds to stories, how stories develop empathy and how we’re integrating picture books across the curriculum at our school. Participants will leave with books lists, ideas for library collaboration, story time & family events.

SOLer Power: Self Organized Learning in the Library
Limited Capacity seats available

In 1999, Dr. Sugata Mitra carved a hole in a wall of an Indian slum and installed a computer. In the months that followed, the children of the slum taught themselves to use the computer to satisfy their own natural curiosity. Since then, Dr. Mitra has developed an exciting approach to education that is well-suited to application in the school library. In this session, participants will learn more about Dr. Mitra’s work and will see examples of ways in which school librarians in Hawaii are encouraging collaboration and exploration by unleashing the power of Self Organized Learning in their libraries.

Genre-fy Your Library!

Facilitating Reading Challenges That Build a Culture of Reading
Limited Capacity seats available

Students who participate in reading challenges read 20% more than their peers and are more likely to agree with the statement "I like to read." Meanwhile, school communities that read together are more successful at building a culture of reading.

This session will look closely at the unique reading challenges facilitated by different schools using the product Beanstack. It will also introduce a new free service called Beanbright through which individual schools can choose different reading challenges to facilitate during the school year and summer. Beanbright provides ready-made reading challenges, tools to help students track independent reading and stay motivated to read, and a myriad of reports providing data-driven insights.

Collaborative Conversation: What's working in YOUR Makerspace?
Limited Capacity seats available

Last year Shannon Miller "wowed" us with amazing books & makerspace projects we could implement in our libraries. What did you try? Maybe you tested something out that you learned at the HASL conference, that you found on Pinterest or learned from a fellow librarian. Bring one or two ideas/projects that worked with your students. You might bring a sample project, share a link to photos/the lesson or just come to talk.
