NCCE Announces “Tech-Savvy Librarian” at ISTE 2014 in Atlanta
(Coeur d’Alene, Idaho) – June 26, 2014, Northwest Council Computer Education (NCCE) is excited to introduce the newest addition to the NCCE family, the Tech-Savvy Librarian. Richard Snyder, Teacher-Librarian for the Lake Washington School District and Kirkland Middle School, is also on the NCCE Board of Directors, and adjunct faculty for the Department of Education at Seattle Pacific University. Richard accompanied NCCE at ISTE 2014 in Atlanta, GA, to aid in professional development training in a collaborative project between NCCE and the U.S. Virgin Islands Department of Education. His introduction to the Tech-Savvy Teachers (Mike Agostinelli and Jason Neiffer) was an exciting addition to announce amongst a crowd of over 16,000 attendees and 500+ exhibiting ed-tech companies from around the world.
As NCCE’s Tech-Savvy Librarian, Richard will join the already popular Tech-Savvy Teachers in their efforts to blog about exciting, real-time products in world of ed-tech, and especially as they relate to librarians in the evolving world of technology in the library. Richard’s influences in the education community are librarians who share their practice and are deeply involved in their community. “I respect anyone who gets up (physically or digitally), says “here’s what I do.” It reminds me to share what we do so that we can find more ways to impact our students and colleagues.”
NCCE is excited to experience the impact Richard will continue to have on the organization through his new role, in addition to his current role on the Board of Directors. His capabilities will bring fresh light to ed-tech in both classroom and library, as well as his and NCCE’s communities combined. Advice that Richard has followed since developing a vision for his graduate students has been to “tell them to be fearless”. “I think that should be our motto when working toward being educational leaders and tech-savvy people. Be fearless. Try things. If they fail-try them again. If they are successful-tell someone else about it and help that person be fearless, too.”
