Technology Training and Competencies for Libraries

Are you doing tech training for your staff? What challenges are you facing? What successes have you had? I would love to hear your story and thoughts. Please comment or email me at reedlori “at” gmail.com. I’ll be glad to read your responses or set up a time to call you.

By the way Sarah Houghton-Jan gave another fabulous OPAL presentation today on Technology Training and Competencies for Libraries. If you missed it check the OPAL Archives to view a recording. Sarah had a lot of great ideas to share whether you are just beginning or have an established technology competencies program.

Tech training seems to be an ongoing part of my role as a teacher-librarian. There is such a range of experience and need out there. I recently helped two primary teachers who thought I was a genius because I moved a picture on publisher!! The problem is that many are happy to have someone else do it for them and not keen to learn themselves
