Apr'15: Library 2.015 Spring Summit - The Emerging Future: Technology and Learning (San Jose State University)

Thursday, April 30 (1-4 pm Mountain)

Inspired by the San Jose State University iSchool's Emerging Future MOOC, this interactive seminar on future technology trends in library and information services will present key issues faced by information professionals and educators. Attendees will learn about and discuss ways to prepare for the future, both professionally and organizationally.

The Library 2.015 Spring Summit will be divided into three parts, with opening and closing keynote panels and one hour of quick topic presentations. In Part 1, Chasing Storms or Rainbows, a keynote panel will look at the effects of emerging technologies on current and future learning trends. Part 2, In the Know, will feature three short sequential presentations: how to plan and fund new technologies; how to stay up to date with new technologies; and a drill down on the key impact areas of new technologies. Part 3, The Here and Now, will be a closing panel discussion on technology and social media trends.
