Gearing up for the MSLA Conference


The Glogster EDU staff is on the road again!  We’ll be at the Massachusetts School Library Association (MSLA)  annual conference on Sunday, March 4 and Monday, March 5 at the Hyannis Resort and Conference Center in Hyannis, MA. Deena and I will be in the exhibition hall in booth #29 – so stop by to learn what’s new, discuss your licensing needs, learn more about our reseller program, or just to say “hello”!

If you work in or with school libraries,  the MSLA conference is an excellent professional development opportunity — the schedule is packed with big names.

Sunday will feature Ross Todd, Associate Professor in the School of Communication, Information and Library Studies at Rutgers University; Alan November, international leader of education technology; author and motivational speaker Tim Green; AASL President-Elect Susan Ballard; and Jeff Kinney, author of Diary of a Wimpy Kid. On Monday, we’ll hear from well-known teacher-librarian-bloggers Joyce Valenza, Chris Harris and Buffy Hamilton; 2010 AASL School Library Program of the Year winner Michelle Luhtala; author Jarrett KrosoczkaKaren Brennan of MIT’s Scratch project; Universal Design Specialist Lori Cooney…the list goes on!

Are you heading to Cape Cod for the festivities? Considering the strange weather we’ve had this winter, you may want to bring your beach blanket and sun screen – it might just be warm enough to catch some rays after the event!
