The Scrible Team was excited to be at the American Association of School Librarians (AASL) National Conference in Phoenix last week! We had a blast hanging out with school librarians from all over the country.
We were off to a great start on Day 1 when Google’s Global Education Evangelist, Jaime Casap, gave us a shout out during his Opening Keynote for being in Google’s Media Literacy App Bundle!
Following his speech, Jaime went to the Google booth to hang out with throngs of engaged librarians… And that’s where we were! As a Google for Education Partner, we were stationed there next to Google’s Connor Regan, who was there representing Be Internet Awesome (BIA), Google’s initiative on digital safety and citizenship for kids. BIA was a great complement to our discussions about media literacy. We loved neighboring and partnering with Connor! He told folks about us and we returned the favor. 🙂
We were excited to be invited by Joyce Valenza – a leading voice and thought leader on school librarianship – to present Scrible at the Unconference at the end of Day 1. It was fun and the highlight was the passionate, funny and boisterous Nancy Jo Lambert – a leading teacher librarian from Frisco ISD – interjecting her enthusiastic support for Scrible to Unconference participants during our presentation!

We were happy to demo Scrible for school librarians from across the country. We were excited to see they loved Scrible! We look forward to them trying Scrible at their schools with their teachers and students!
