Nominations for the NCLCA Innovative Use of Technology Award are now open!

Deadline for submission is June 25th.   (Note: One spot on the NCLCA website has an earlier date.  This will be corrected shortly.)  See   for details.

The purpose of the NCLCA Innovative Use of Technology Award is 1) to recognize individuals, learning centers, or institutions that use innovative technology solutions focused on the learning center to improve student learning, assist learners who may learn differently, improve resource usage, increase student engagement, or enhance learning strategies and 2) to encourage proliferation of innovative uses of technology to other learning centers so that students everywhere may benefit.

Potential Areas of Technology:
Technology is, of course, rapidly developing, so the following list of newer technologies cannot be considered an inclusive list. Furthermore, the use of older technologies, applied in innovative ways, may also lead to an award.

     Social Media
     Mobile Learning
     Lecture Capture
     Green Technologies
     Virtual Worlds
     Document Sharing
     Live Communication Systems for Online Support
     Specialized Computer Software
