Kinda ridiculously excited. First time I've seen Pan Bagnat in the wild. Recalling #powersearchingwithgoogle #mooc 2012. Can't wait to tell the blogger who originally sent me that question that I'm having one for brunch.

Call for Proposals open through December 15

Coming to ALA Annual in San Francisco this year? Consider extending your trip to the Bay Area in order to join us for a two-day colloquium, Research Relevance: K-12 Library Instruction for the 21st Century. It will take place June 24-25, in Palo Alto, CA.  A call for proposals for concurrent sessions is still open, through December 15, 2014.

We are looking for hands-on sessions that focus closely on essential information skills and/or strategies and pedagogy to best support today’s learners. Preference will be given to sessions emphasizing participatory, collaborative structures that provide attendees with resources for use at their sites.
 
Conference information and starter topic ideas, as well as the form to submit a session proposal: castilleja.org/researchrelevance.

If you want to come and explore these topics with us without running a session, registration will open in January. You can sign up for updates here as well.

Questions? Email ResearchRelevance@castilleja.org

Thank you,
Tasha Bergson-Michelson, Instructional and Programming Librarian
Jole Seroff, Director of Library and Information Services

Have great articles about pros/cons of multiple devices in middle school? OR import of quality of what you do with tech vs quantity of tech?

In case you thought LOL Cats was a new idea--
I was helping a student track down the source of an anti-suffrage postcard, and came across this archive: http://www.uni.edu/palczews/NEW%20postcard%20webpage/Cats.html
