Summer Summit 2016 Resources and Presentations
Summer Summit 2016 was a blast!
Forty-six Idaho school librarians had a few days of fun, learning, and community in July in beautiful Coeur d'Alene
attending Summer Summit 2016! Tiffany Whitehead, The Mighty Little Librarian, was our fantastic featured speaker, and shared tons of valuable information to take back to school. If she is ever a choice on the conference program, be sure to attend her session - you won't be disappointed! Follow her blog at mightylittlelibrarian.com , where you can find this infographic Tiffany created and shared for anyone to use. Just remember to cite and attribute!
The Breakout EDU session was a highlight, and many librarians came away with ideas about how this exciting activity can be applied to most any content area. We hope librarians, teachers, and students alike have many hours of hands-on, collaborative learning with it!
There were also sessions on low-tech making, information literacy, how to program within a fixed schedule, and what high school grads should know when they get to college, among many, many other topics!
A sincere thanks to all who took a few days out of their summer to get some PD! Hope to see you all again next year for Summer Summit 2017!
