Redefining reading and the role of the teacher-librarian

Redefining reading and the role of the teacher-librarian | 21st century school libraries | Scoop.it

"As a teacher-librarian I set out in this paper to discover what progress, if any, has been made in implementing strategies for teaching reading online. What I discovered is the complexity of interpreting online text is much greater than I anticipated. Ranjana Das (2011) explains that the very nature of online text has blurred the previously predictable line between authors, readers, users and producers (p. 346). Being an online student myself, I am often reading while authoring, using while curating my library. The complexity of reading online has implications for all of us in the education system."
