 Learning TouchPoints are an important part of the library – learning commons – physical program.  The service desks, collaboration bars and hubs can be developed to include visualization TouchPoints; spaces where students, tutors, mentors and faculty can write on the walls.  These spaces will help the library staff visualize discovery services; share spaces that will enable the community to work collaboratively with virtual content in the cloud.

The Crisis in School Libraries

The Crisis in School Libraries | 21st Century School Libraries are Cool! | Scoop.it

Since the early 1990’s, school libraries have continued to erode; each year more school boards must make the difficult decision to reduce proper staffing in the school library and to cut back or stop the purchasing of school library resources.
This decline is having a direct negative impact on student achievement and reading engagement. Students who are in schools without a staffed and resourced library program are not receiving the same education as students who have school libraries.


Via Karen Bonanno
Anne McLean's insight:

School libraries need more staffing and resources in the digital age.  We need to make school leaders aware of the direct negative impact of cuts to staffing and budgets.

Reinventing libraries for 'hanging out, messing around and geeking out' - CNN

Reinventing libraries for 'hanging out, messing around and geeking out' - CNN | 21st Century School Libraries are Cool! | Scoop.it

Collections, staff and space dedicated to teens have existed in libraries for years. Now, libraries are shifting those resources to developing learning spaces where teens can create content instead of consume it. Research has shown the widespread positive impacts of afterschool programs on academic achievement and social behavior, especially in low-income communities. The need for spaces that engage teens becomes even greater during summer break, when teens have more free time, said Elyse Adler with the Nashville Public Library.

In reviewing my Scoop It recommendations I came across a curation established by Tom D'Amico (@TDOttawa) .  His Scoop It site is  iGeneration - 21st Century Education.  As many of you know, I am honored to be working with pre-service students at Sterling College (KS) as an Adjunct Professor.  My course is entitled "Technology in the Classroom".  As one of my major points on using technology is that the students must be considering "How" the technology will be used to provides avenues not available in other manners as well as corporating HOTS and critical thinking skills.  Through that approach articles like this one are great reads and discussion points for all parties to discuss effective use of technology.
