    Teacher Librarians are powerhouse educators who connect technology and literacy.  For those of us who spend our days in the vibrant world of libraries, this is a given.  But how can we help all our stakeholders see the potential and the proven successes of the unique techno-literate connections that we grow in libraries?

    This conference will focus on celebrating innovative technology and literacy connections in libraries, exploring new collaborations that unite these two forces, and developing new strategies for showing policy-makers, communities, other educators, and students that libraries and TLs are essential leaders in 21st century schools.
