Internet@Schools East - Registration Now Open!

 Back in Washington, DC This Year!!!

The challenge of change continues to affect all those in K-12 education. All this change is, of course, affecting those very areas where you, the library media and technology specialists, are practicing your craft … teaching, learning, advising, supporting, collaborating. Your efforts and your programs must remain at the forefront as the education community ramps up in these difficult and fluid times to equip all students for life in the 21st century. What a challenge!

Join us at Internet@Schools East 2011, being held at the Hilton Washington in Washington, DC, where you can network face-to-face with presenters and attendees addressing the same challenge, even while you blog, twitter, or text with colleagues far afield. You’ll be well served with ideas to take back to your school and media center. Find out more...

Review of the Year 2010 and Trends Watch 2011
by Paula J. Hane
The year 2010 saw the emergence of the iPad, the Android, and apps—lots and lots of apps. The market for mobile computing skyrocketed this year.
