E-libraries and e-learning Conference at Wellington College in December.

Here is Sarah Pavey’s presentation to our e-Learning and e-Libraries Conference in December. Sarah is Senior Librarian at Box Hill School in Surrey and is a passionate user of new technologies in Libraries.

We had a very exciting and inspiring day – challenging our established ways of thinking. Plenty of food for thought from a number of speakers. See  Wellington Learning blog for a full write up of the day – “Reflections on a conference on learning & libraries in a digital age” 11/12/2012
