B-Ready: Building College and Career Readiness with Digital Resources

SPONSORED BY: Britannica Digital Learning and School Library Journal
EVENT DATE AND TIME: Monday, May 6, 2013, 3:00 - 4:00 PM ET/12:00 - 1:00 PM PT
School librarians play a key role in ensuring that students have the tools and knowledge to succeed. Now, in light of the Common Core's increased emphasis on college, career, and world readiness, is your school library equipped with the right next-generation digital resources for mastering 21st century skills? What criteria should librarians use to evaluate the digital resources available to students? And how can you best coach students to look at the resources they encounter online with the same discerning eye?
Using examples from Britannica Digital Learning's exciting portfolio of digital solutions, this webinar will illustrate valuable criteria that school librarians can apply when evaluating online resources to support digital literacy development. Participants also will learn a new approach, using a third-party rubric, for guiding students through the objective assessment of resources they find when reading or researching online.
