School Libraries and The Digital Backpack | LEADING and LEARNING

School librarians are uniquely positioned to collaborate with teachers to infuse technology to support learning, assessment and curriculum within a collaborative learning environment. Teacher-librarians are connected to current research and can assist with best-practice in effective technology implementation.

The LibGuide provides good links for the role of teacher librarians in schools.

Think about your purpose - to implement an initiative such as blended learning, you need to achieve more than you do in the current environment - so what will be different? How will it improve student learning?

I wonder if its helping. Utah's administrators should read it but will it save many of the school librarians who are going to loose their jobs?

Flipping the Classroom: A revolutionary approach to learning presents some pros and cons | School Library Journal

Flipping the Classroom: A revolutionary approach to learning presents some pros and cons | School Library Journal | 21st Century Teacher Librarians and School Libraries | Scoop.it

Back in 2007, two high school science teachers in Woodland Park, CO, decided to try a “crazy idea.” “We said, ‘What if we stopped lecturing and committed all our lectures to videos?’” says Jon Bergmann, now the lead technology facilitator at the Joseph Sears School in Kenilworth, IL. He and fellow educator Aaron Sams posted their short films—15 to 20 minutes long—for students to watch at home. (Parents could also look and say, “Oh, I see how the teacher wants it done!” says Bergmann.)

Linda Dougherty's curator insight, April 22, 2013 8:53 AM

Flipping a classroom does have its positives but it will depend on student access and their commitment to watching video at home...just the same as in the past, will they do their written homework?

Teacher-librarians change with the times - students need to be more info-savvy

Teacher-librarians change with the times - students need to be more info-savvy | 21st Century Teacher Librarians and School Libraries | Scoop.it

Today, in addition to introducing children to books and curating collections in school libraries, teacher-librarians are doing the same with websites and online information.

They often research and vet appropriate websites ahead of time to provide to teachers when they're covering a particular subject, just as they do with books.

But they also teach students to do better Internet searches, refine their search terms, and become more independent.

Part of the challenge is a trend teachers and librarians call "satisficing," a combination of satisfying and sufficient or suffice, said Finlay. In other words, students' approach is often "get what I need for an assignment and hand it in."

Teacher-librarians aim to get students to look deeper into their subjects.
