Abstract

In Florida, K-12 classrooms are being equipped with interactive whiteboards and software. Once provided by the school districts, training is now being provided by one academic library that supports a teacher education program at a Florida College of Education. This paper describes development of the new role of one academic library to provide workshops for teaching these instructional technologies to pre-service and intern students. Traditionally focused on helping students to develop information and media literacy skills, librarians now offer a professional development opportunity that may be extended to education faculty, as well as the rest of campus. Motivation, funding, technology, training content and next steps in developing the program during one academic year will be revealed.
