TEAL Library Highlights: Mobile Technology Training for Your Community
Friday, July 26, 2013 from 2:00 pm - 3:30 p.m.
As libraries become experts in digital literacy, they are expanding library service offerings and reaching beyond their physical walls. This webinar will feature a panel of Texas library staff from Arlington, Lancaster Veterans Memorial and Salado Public Libraries, all participants in the Technology Expertise, Access and Learning for all Texans project (TEAL). Marc Marchand from Arlington Public Library will discuss the creation of a new, library-run computer lab within an existing Parks and Recreation facility, and he will explain how the TechLink Mobile Technology lab is expanding the reach of the library. Robin Hall from Lancaster Veterans Memorial Library will share her experience offering computer classes at the local Senior Center, and Jeanie Lively from Salado Public Library will provide an overview of the innovative Tech-To-Go Program, which provides laptop computers to patrons for check-out (just like books!).
- Marc Marchand, Library Services Manager, Arlington Public Library
- Robin Hall, Administrative Aide, Lancaster Veterans Memorial Library
- Jeanie Lively, Library Director, Salado Public Library
What's a Webinar?
Short for Web-based seminar, a webinar is a presentation, lecture, workshop or seminar that is transmitted over the Web. A key feature of a Webinar is its interactive elements -- the ability to give, receive and discuss information. Contrast with Webcast, in which the data transmission is one way and does not allow interaction between the presenter and the audience. Source: Webopedia.
