Teacher librarians transform student learning : ASLA report

The Australian School Library Association (ASLA) is calling upon Australian educational decision makers to employ teacher librarians as part of the solution to improve national student learning and literacy.  The association's report, Future learning and school libraries, highlights the positive role teacher librarians have in supporting future learning within the school.

Karen Bonanno's curator insight, April 14, 2013 9:57 PM

A summary of key points in the report include:
- a review of the global environment in which modern learners and educators are immersed,
- the educational implications of trends affecting contemporary schooling,
- the means of evaluating education outcomes, and
- key alerts on the critical role of the teacher librarian.

Rashmi Moghe's comment, June 17, 2013 9:57 AM
Australian School Library Association (2013). Future Learning and School Libraries. ASLA, April 2013. Retrieved from http://www.asla.org.au/advocacy.aspx

Taking the Key alerts included are-
Globalisation facilitates connectivity across schools to allow for collaborative engagement in the exchange of information and creation of new knowledge for students.
The teacher librarian and the school library are vital agencies in facilitating global connectivity.
Teacher librarians are instrumental in
• the design and delivery of digital literacy programs,
• adopting digital citizenship approaches to exercising social responsibility and
ethical practice, and
• creating awareness of cultural sensitivity in a digital environment.
They also identify, store and disseminate relevant and appropriate information to
support the teaching and learning process; Teacher Librarians assess the quality of
information and customise access to that information.

In the Digital Age, What Becomes of the Library? | MindShift | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it

In a related Pew study on libraries and the Internet, one librarian told researchers, “I believe public libraries should move away from being ‘houses of knowledge’ and move more towards being ‘houses of access.’ This is what the public is asking for and we are here to serve them.” Beyond the use of technology, many librarians think in terms of access and information being closely linked, and believe that libraries still have a responsibility to both.

Awesome Graphic on the 27 Things Teacher Librarians Do ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it

"Do your students need a reminder of what a teacher librarian really does ? Here is an awesome infographic from anethicalisland featuring the 27 things teacher librarians do. A quick scan of these 27 roles reveals how digital and information literacy has made its place among top priorities in the work of a teacher librarian. As a teacher, sometimes I really get amazed at the tremendous work these guys have to do on everyday basis. As much as I can't imagine a class without a teacher, I also can't imagine a school without a librarian. Thumbs up librarians!

Softlink: Softlink Australian Schools Survey 2012 results

Softlink: Softlink Australian Schools Survey 2012 results | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it

In April 2012, Softlink conducted the third annual Australian School Library Survey. The 2012 Softlink School Library Survey reports key findings into Australian school library budgets, staffing and literacy levels. Softlink has conducted the annual survey since 2010. Findings from these reports have been recognised and used by the Australian Government, the Australian School Library Association (ASLA) and Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA).

 

Principal findings from the 2012 Softlink Australian School Library Survey include:

 

* There is a positive relationship between well-resourced libraries and higher student literacy outcomes

* School library resourcing is inconsistent across school type (primary, secondary, P-12) and education provider (Government, Catholic, Independent)

* The majority of school libraries had no change in budgets in the past 12 monthsVery few school libraries received additional resources for implementing the National Curriculum

* Staffing levels remained unchanged for the majority of school libraries during the past 12 months

* There is a strong intention to purchase eBooks in the coming year

* Mobile technology (iPod, iPad, smart phone and tablet) use by students is widespread across all school types and education providers and is having a greater impact on the role of the school library.

 

Challenges continue to be: gaining funding, finding a balance between the physical and digital collection, collaboration with teaching staff and the recognition of Teacher Librarian’s skills and their evolving role.

 

A copy of the full report is available http://www2.softlinkint.com/assets/pdf/survey/2012%20Softlink%20school%20library%20survey%20report.pdf
