Highlights from @NAEYCAC : Lisa Guernsey, Chip Donohue & Other Rock Stars
The NAEYC Annual Conference this weekend in Washington, DC was a whirlwind of activity, and there was PLENTY of conversation about the role of children’s librarians and new media in the early childhood space. Of particular note were two shout outs from Lisa Guernsey & Chip Donohue, both of whom referenced the new media mentor position that children’s librarians are beginning to take on in their communities. I’m including their presentation slides below.
I was also pleased to meet Mary Beth Parks, who has been leading some very innovative new media programs for children at the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh. I can’t wait to hear more about what they have been working on, and we hope to feature their work on LittleeLit soon!
Many thanks to Lisa Guernsey, Chip Donohue, Amanda Armstrong, Karen Nemeth, Andrew Davis, Faith Rogow & Mike Robb for the chats, meals and general welcoming to the ECE & media literacy communities. I look forward to many more chats in the future!
