Learn how the National Geographic inquiry learning process known as ACVCA melds with the Big 6 Information literacy model to help students better understand the geographic, cultural, political and technological world they live in. School library and media technology professionals serve as partners with classroom teachers in a wide variety of content areas to develop big ideas and present geographic questions including "Where is it? Why is it there? Why Care?". Various research and technology tools will be presented that allow students to create authentic and meaningful artifacts that encourage them to be change agents in their community and throughout the world. This session is targeted to middle school grades 5-8 but can apply as widely as grades 3-12.

Notes: Attendees are encouraged to bring smart phone and/or iPad to try out photography and videography techniques.
