Ruckus Media has teamed up with School Library Journal (SLJ) for a Twitter party called "Librarians and Digital Storytelling".
The folks at SLJ are serious about apps. They feature app reviews, news, and commentary on their blog Touch and Go: A Guide to the Best Apps and Enhanced Books for Children and Teens[include link] every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, and in their print issues. (Their reviews will be archived in their new, soon-to-be-launched online database.) And they’ve established an app advisory group to help professionals navigate the world of apps. More app reviews are available from SLJ’s sister publication, The Horn Book.
They are just as interested in exploring the dynamic world of digital publishing as we are at Ruckus, so this is going to be a fruitful conversation as we explore the evolving world of digital storytelling in the library space.
Come hang out with us on Wednesday, October 19th from 9-10pm EST at hashtag #RuckusSLJ
on Twitter (or on TweetGrid, TweetDeck or TweetChat, whichever platform you prefer. Our guest hosts from SLJ, Daryl Grabarek, editor of Touch and Go, and Kathy Ishizuka, technology editor will be tweeting at @sljournal
