Join us for next week’s NCompass Live, “Tech Talk with Michael Sauers: Wreck the Library: How to Host a Tech Take Apart”, on Wednesday, April 29, 10:00-11:00 am Central Time.
One of the best ways to learn how technology works is to take stuff apart. In this broadcast, Leanne Mobley from the Martin County Library System in South Florida, will share a recent program called “Wreck the Library” where teens were invited to take apart computers, VCRs, modems, and more. Leanne will discuss the planning and implementation of this program, as well as information about the Martin County’s digital media center: the idea lab.
Leanne earned her MLS from Indiana University and currently works as the Digital Literacy Librarian for the Martin County Library System. Her background is in media production and she is passionate about using technology to bring ideas to life.
In this monthly feature of NCompass Live, the NLC’s Technology Innovation Librarian, Michael Sauers, will discuss the tech news of the month and share new and exciting tech for your library. There will also be plenty of time in each episode for you to ask your tech questions. So, bring your questions with you, or send them in ahead of time, and Michael will have your answers.
