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...

Streaming Video and Music Developments at Alexander Street Press
by Paula J. Hane
Alexander Street Press doesn't act as if it's a company struggling in a tough content market and dealing with library budget cuts. At the recent ALA Midwinter meeting, the company held its annual customer breakfast for an overflowing room of about 500 people—its largest turnout ever. Stephen Rhind-Tutt, founder and president, told me the company had a "pretty good 2010 despite the recession." Much of its success is due to its rapidly growing streaming media collections. It plans to release three major new video products for libraries in early 2011.

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. And, information industry providers were quick to jump in with content delivery apps of all kinds. But I actually think it's a toss-up for top news of the year. While some say 2010 was the year of the app, there's also a very strong case that it could be considered the year of the ebook. And in our information industry, you could make a claim for it being the year of the platform relaunch (and I did, in my December 2010 NewsBreak Update column in Information Today,.
