This morning I’m sharing the opening keynote at the 2013 “Library Camp” Conference in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Here are the slides I’ll be discussing. I’m changing the introduction I’ve used lately for this presentation to focus on the Waldseemüller map, which is also known as “America’s Birth Certificate.” This map is explored in glorious detail in Toby Lester’s fantastic book, “The Fourth Part of the World: The Race to the Ends of the Earth, and the Epic Story of the Map That Gave America Its Name.” There are wonderful analogies to make between the pioneers in the “age of exploration” as well as the cartographers of the Americas, and the roles we need to play in our communities (whether we are librarians, teachers, parents, etc) as digital learning pioneers.
