CSLA Conference and Cyber Sunday

It's conference season, and I promise soon to report about all the great ideas I learned during the AASL Conference in Minneapolis October 27-30 and the Library 2.011 Virtual Conference November 2-3. Right now, though, I'm in major preparation mode for CSLA's annual conference being held in Pasadena next Friday - Sunday (November 11-13). If you live in California, you aren't going to want to miss it. It's not too late to register onsite. Check out the conference website, and especially the conference wiki. Marie Slim is the brain behind the wiki, and welcomes all your participation. And, you don't need to be a member of the school library world to participate in the conference. On Sunday, we are offering the first ever "Cyber Sunday," a full day of engaging sessions by experts in the field of cyber citizenship, online safety, digital literacy, and empowering our 21st Century learners online. This entire event is free and open to parents, teachers, and anyone interested. Here is the invitation I sent to staff members and volunteers at my school this week. Please take it as a personal invitation to you!

Dear Staff/Volunteers,

I would like to extend an invitation to all of you to attend a very special "Cyber Sunday" event being convened next Sunday, November 13, by the California School Library Association (CSLA) at the Pasadena Convention Center from 9:45 AM - 3:15 PM.  As an addition to CSLA's regular annual conference, we are hosting a day of sessions by experts from the field - elected officials, reps from Yahoo, Facebook, the CA Dept. of Education, CA Dept. Office of Privacy Protection, and more - on all aspects of cyber citizenship, online safety, digital literacy, and empowering our 21st Century learners online. This program is being offered free of charge, and intended for educators, parents, government leaders, and any other interested parties. Please consider spending the day at this event, which I am confident will be very informative and rewarding.
