Becoming a Global Educator!

I’m incredibly honored to have presented to more than 200 school librarians in Pakistan in early December.  While the aspiring world traveler in me wishes it had been in person, I pre-recorded my keynote and took questions live from the audience.  Due to the +11 hour time difference, their morning was my late night.  It was invigorating to hear their questions about transforming their libraries to be more dynamic and active learning environments.

I followed along with the conference via Twitter.  My PLN has continued to expand as librarians from the conference reach out.  Several of them are planning to come to the United States to pursue advanced degrees in Library Science.  I know of one who will be coming to the Illinois Computing Educator’s Conference in late February.  In many ways, the world truly is growing smaller.  I look forward to watching this group of passionate educators as they share and learn with others throughout the world!
