School Librarian and Author Nancy Keane will show you how reading promotion and technology go hand in hand. Book talks are the process creating short “commercials” presented by librarians, teachers, or students in elementary through high school in libraries or anywhere possible to entice children to read a book. The traditional method of presenting book talks involves face to face presentations telling children about the books. With our tech savvy population, book talks are evolving beyond the traditional format and involving more innovative technology. In this presentation, Dr. Keane, author of The Tech Savvy Booktalker, will demonstrate a variety of formats including book trailers, pencasting and even the use of augmented reality. Become a tech savvy book talker yourself. Nancy J. Keane is a well known name in the world of book talking. Her award winning website, Book talks Quick and Simple, is a standard tool used by thousands every day.
