9 am – 9:55 am Connecting Students to Courses, Experts and Virtual Field Trips with Beth Kabes and Linda Dickeson
Nebraska is a leader in connecting students to courses statewide through videoconferencing, serving over 8000 student enrollments per school year. With this infrastructure in place, the door is open to provide students and patrons with even more opportunities beyond their classrooms and libraries, including virtual field trips. The presenters will share:
• A brief background behind Nebraska’s success and the reasons for statewide success.
• What technologies are being used.
• How videoconferencing is being used for many creative solutions.
• Where educators and public librarians can find free or low-cost virtual field trip options through the Nebraska Virtual Instruction Source (NVIS).
• How the Nebraska Distance Learning Association (NDLA) partnered with statewide distance learning coordinators to provide a free workshop for staff at museums, zoos, foundations, historical sites and more, to help them learn how to provide enrichment programs through videoconferencing.
10 am – 10:55 am The Facets of Fair Use with Scott Childers
Many educational activities rely on using someone else’s intellectual property under the banner of “fair use”, but just how far can you take it? What are the limits and what are your responsibilities as a school librarian? This session will decipher some of the copyright and trademark laws and doctrines that determine what you should and shouldn’t do.
11 am – 12 pm Creating Your Own Book Trailers with Carrie Foell
Students today are looking for quick and entertaining ways to find something new to read. Book trailers are the answer! We will be exploring several options for creating your own book trailers, including iMovie and Animoto. These video creators are so easy, even kids can use them! We’ll take you through the creation process: storyboard, collecting copyright-friendly media, selecting appropriate music, and publishing.
