Booktalks are the process creating short “commercials” presented by librarians, teachers, or students in elementary through high school in libraries or anywhere possible to entice children to read a book. The traditional method of presenting booktalks involves face to face presentations telling children about the books. There are a variety of types of booktalks but plot summary is by far the most common. With our tech savvy population, booktalks are evolving beyond the traditional format and involving more innovative technology. In this presentation, Dr. Keane, author of The Tech Savvy Booktalker, will demonstrate a variety of formats including book trailers, pencasting and even the use of augmented reality. Become a tech savvy booktalker yourself.
