Libraries, Learning and Lock Down: Observations, Strategies and Tips to Remote Learning
Presented by Kerry Gittins
Date: Wednesday 8 April, 2020
Kerry is an Australian Teacher Librarian who has been living and working overseas for over 30 years. She is currently Head of Library at Renaissance International School Saigon in Ho Chi Minh City in 2017. Kerry’s school has been in lock down for several months and in that time she has learnt many ways to deliver learning online which she will share with us.
Kerry is passionate about promoting literacy in schools especially through picture books. She is also passionate about using technology to enhance teaching and learning and strives to offer her students examples from both areas that will enable them to become avid readers and lifelong learners. She has presented at the SGIS conferences in Switzerland in 2015/2016, Librarians Knowledge Sharing Workshop conference in 2018, EduTech Asia 2019, and was asked to present through Room to Read on the importance of school libraries at the Ministry Of Education and Training conference held in Hanoi last November.
