Tech Smackdown!

The 2011 Carol A. Kearney Leadership Retreat was held earlier this week at Cornell. What an amazing event. I had no idea this retreat had been going on for 20 years.

The event, put on by the NYLA Section on School Libraries, was organized by Sara Kelly Johns & Christine Hatami – with the help of many other school librarians from around the state.  This year’s theme was “Think, Create, Share and Grow: Transforming Your School Library Leadership” and included 2 days of terrific presentations and discussions. Check out the wiki for details on the topics covered and links to many valuable resources.

Chris Harris & I had fun running the Tech Smackdown. We had about 20 brave folks who volunteered to shared their favorite apps and tools with the group. The evening of fun continued with an auction to raise scholarship funds – much fun was had by all and over $2300 was raised!
