Calling All Media Specialists and Librarians!

Jennifer LaGarde will once again be leading the Media Specialist/ Librarians strand at AcceleratED.

What is the Media Specialist / Librarian Strand?

The Media Specialist / Librarian Strand is a special day designed just for you. The Strand takes place the day before IPDX (February 20). When you register for the two-day IPDX conference, you also get a special day of workshop content at APDX for only $30.

This strand will help you gain new perspectives on media literacy, advocacy and strategies to work with peers and technology. In just one day, you will gain job embedded skills and ideas alongside a group of your peers to help support your personal goals and to help you build a district/building vision for the future of your space.

Why register for both?

We think IPDX would be a great fit for Media Specialists and Librarians. The mission of IPDX is to provide all educators with a supportive community where they can collaborate to develop practical strategies for integrating technology into teaching and learning. Plus, when you register for the IPDX conference, the Media Specialist / Librarian Strand is only $30.
