MEMO 2005 Fall Conference

School Libraries & Learning: Strengthening the Connections

Turf Valley Resort & Conference Center

October 20-21, 2005



Featuring Keynote Speaker Doug Johnson - Writer, Speaker and Consultant on School Technology and Library Issues and author of The Indispensable Librarian, The Indispensable Teacher’s Guide to Computer Skills, Teaching Right from Wrong in the Digital Age and Machines are the Easy Part; People are the Hard Part.


Doug’s keynote presentation will be on “The Indispensable Librarian”

Will librarians go the way of the slide rule and buggy whip or become the most important people on the planet? The current roles as outlined in Information Power are reinterpreted, and some additional, proactive roles are suggested. A discussion of specific media competencies, retraining opportunities, and job security strategies follow.


Doug will also present a Break-out Session titled “The Fence or the Ambulance: Are You Punishing or Preventing Plagiarism in Your School?”

Too much effort is expended in education trying to “catch” plagiarism in student work. Teachers and media specialists are using various web services and techniques using search engines to determine if or how much of student writing is lifted from online sources. While such tools are necessary and can be effective, educators should also be creating assignments, especially those that involve research, that minimize the likelihood of plagiarism in the first place. This workshop gives teachers the tools that help them design LPP (Low Probability of Plagiarism) projects that require original, thoughtful research.
