Old Dominion University, in partnership with the Virginia Association of School Librarians, will conduct NextGen2, a transformative distance learning program leading to a Masters Degree in Education with Virginia licensure in school librarianship. The next generation of school librarians will not only need to have the information and digital literacy skills integral to informational professionals in this century, they will also need to model and teach those skills to the PK-12 students who may well live to be citizens of the 22nd century. Drawn from classroom teachers in rural regions of Virginia, 18 students will become school librarians who will take roles of service and leadership both in their local communities and at regional, state, and national levels.
