Yesterday, at the WiscNet Future Technologies conference, I enjoyed a session on Google CS First and Google Expedition, both of which promise great potential in the library. Perhaps the presentation was directed towards schools, but what library doesn't have students and what librarian isn't an educator?! :)
Not only was I impressed with the quality of the programs that Google offers (often for free), but also the quantity. Most are focused on computers and the internet - both of which our libraries certainly possess. There are programs available for children/students, educators/teachers, or a combination thereof.
Explore Google's Expeditions Pioneer Program and Google for Education pages to discover these gems yourself! :)
