Title: WGIL Report

1. We held the Teaching and Technology Conference on October 17th in Brockport. Attendance was much lower than we had hoped (about 20 people) and we decided to cancel the keynote speaker as a result.  However, as a smaller group we still managed to have some very insightful conversations.  Some of the topics discussed: how digital storytelling can improve literacy, demonstration of various digital storytelling tools, digital notebook tools, SUNY COIL and opportunities for interdisciplinary collaborations, information literacy and K12 to College transition, ACRL Framework for Information Literacy and how SUNY libraries are integrating and transitioning to using the ACRL Framework.

2. We submitted an article to the SUNYLA Newsletter to help promote the Open SUNY Information Literacy Portal and encourage more submissions, (see page 3).
