Librarians in the Metaverse explore digital citizenship

    Hello colleagues,

    As a TWU SLIS alumni, I am sharing across groups. I recently was asked to speak for the Virtual Worlds Education Consortium "Metaverse Expert Series".  My topic was digital citizenship in the metaverse, a term which is gaining popularity.  I have been researching virtual environments for 18 years and firmly believe the kids are already there!

    Currently, I share guest lectures on changing literacy in digital culture and how educators can learn best practices for teaching (as well as librarians understanding their role in changing landscapes).
