ISTE-SIGMS Advocacy Statement Release: “The Role of School Librarians in Promoting the Use of Educational Technologies”
from Laurie Conzemius, ISTE-SIGMS Communications Chair
ISTE SIGMS has just released an important advocacy statement – “The Role of School Librarians in Promoting the Use of Educational Technologies”. This document can be used to provide information on the important role that school librarians play in promoting the use of educational technologies in their schools and the need for libraries to have adequate available technologies. Please share this statement with administrators and other library stakeholders. See the document at http://sigms.iste.wikispaces.net/advocacy.
The statement was created by the SIGMS Executive Advocacy Committee – Lisa Perez, Doug Johnson, Joyce Valenza, Keisa Williams, Wendy Stephens and Ernie Cox. It was created at the request of ETAN to better help us advocate for school librarians. Watch for a call for volunteers in September for the SIGMS Advocacy Committee, chaired by Kathy Sanders, to continue this important work.
