9:00-10:30am Technology trends: Toni Twiss
A former English and Media Studies teacher, now works for the University of Waikato as an adviser to secondary schools about
the new NZ Curriculum and eLearning. She is interested in how students connect - both locally and globally - using the mobile technologies they already bring to school. Toni spends a lot of time working with teachers to consider how students having "Google in their pockets" impacts on teaching and learning. How does this affect library provision?

Collection Management in a connected world: Joanna Thomas, Lee Rowe and
Wendy Ballard from the Bay of Plenty Polytechnic will:
· give an overview of managing a collection that includes printed and digital resources;
· discuss collection management policies and how to prioritise collection management activities;
· look at collection management from a Polytechnic perspective, including their Liaison Librarian model;
· discuss how emerging trends in publishing, technology and education are impacting on education libraries including
- the Government focus on literacy
- the emergence of e-journals, e-books and digital video
- monitoring usage, evaluation
- free and Open-Access resources
This will be an interactive session, both showcasing resources and allowing time for
participant discussion.
Wendy Ballard, previously Library Manager at Greenpark Primary School in Tauranga, will provide the school perspective, as they look at best practice in school libraries. The group will be encouraged to share what they have found useful.
