ISTE <https://www.iste.org/learn/librarians>, in partnership with Future
Ready Librarians, is offering an online course called Exploring Future
Ready Librarianship: Practices for the Emerging Leader
<https://www.iste.org/learn/iste-u/library-practices>. Participants will
“reflect on current librarian and media specialist practice; identify areas
for professional inquiry and growth; explore the Future Ready Librarians™
framework; and create and implement a personal action plan to lead from the
library. This course is designed to maximize student-centered learning
opportunities and help districts leverage technology as part of the Future
Ready Schools® Initiative. This is a 15-hour, self-paced course with
ongoing instructor support.” Three sessions are planned; the start dates
are October 14, 2019; February 10, 2020, and June 8, 2020.

For the fall session, ISTE and Follett are offering 150 scholarships to
librarians working in high-needs schools. Instead of $249, the course will
cost $49, regardless of ISTE membership. Applications
are due August 18, 2019.

“‘ISTE believes
that school librarians play a critical role within the school community,’
said Joseph South, chief learning officer at ISTE. ‘Many are already
experts in the skills needed to be catalysts for the digital transformation
of learning. Every day, they create and curate opportunities for educators
and students to engage new technologies and resources that support their
learning goals...’”
