Work accomplished since last scheduled meeting.*: As a virtual committee, we meet twice monthly using ALA Connect chat. Since the last reporting period, we have continued our ongoing projects: posting to the ALSC blog; contributing to Children and Libraries; maintaining the Children & Technology Interest Group in ALA Connect; and generating topics and questions for ALSC's monthly Twitter chats. We also created a survey for the membership regarding the Twitter chats.

Our discussions focus on the projects we work on. We have a schedule laid out for ALSC blog posts and Children and Libraries articles. We will continue to work on the Twitter chats during our meetings. We are also working to provide ALSC with feedback on a partnership request.
How have the committee/task force’s activities since the last meeting supported and furthered ALSC’s Strategic Plan? http://www.ala.org/alsc/aboutalsc/stratplan*: Our committee work supports the education goal area of ALSC's strategic plan.

Resources could include articles, reports, blog posts, and review sources. This project is in an early brainstorming stage.
