Description: 

Apps are all the rage these days. As schools and public libraries are increasingly adopting mobile devices such as iPads and eReaders, librarians are looking for ways to use apps to enhance lesson plans and create "Storytimes 2.0." In this presentation two school librarians and two public librarians will explain and demonstrate how they have successfully integrated apps into their library programs and services. This session will help you raise the bar for librarianship and learning at your own institution.

Once you have attended please take a moment to evaluate this ALSC session.

This is the handout of apps mentioned in the public libraries portion of the presentation.

Link stopped working under "session materials" - reposting the handout from the public libraries segment of the presentation.

Also, Gretchen posted our slides on slideshare:

I wonder if anyone caught any of this on video?  I'd especailly like to have a clip of Gretchen fielding the question of how to deal with staff who are resistant to using iPads/technology in the library. I remember "there's no going back!" but the rest of it was just priceless.  I need sound bites like that at my library!
