Telling Your Advocacy Story with Digital Tools
In this session, we will discuss the importance of harnessing the power of software and Web 2.0 tools to reach school library stakeholders to make a case for the central role of school librarians is creating vibrant literacy learning communities in their schools. Using digital stories to deliver advocacy messages is an effective and efficient way to reach out to classroom teachers, school administrators, K-12 students, and their families.

We will share several examples and will use a digital advocacy story focused on coteaching and targeted to classroom teachers and principals as our primary example.
