Flip This Library: School Libraries Need a Revolution

Flip This Library: School Libraries Need a Revolution | 23things | Scoop.it

What has to happen for school libraries to become relevant? If we want to connect with the latest generation of learners and teachers, we have to totally redesign the library from the vantage point of our users—our thinking has to do a 180-degree flip. In short, it’s time for school libraries to become a lot less like Microsoft and a lot more like Google. With this notion in mind, David Loertscher, collaborated with two colleagues, Carol Koechlin and Sandi Zwaan, Canadian educational consultants, to develop an idea called the school library learning commons.

I usually do follow back those who RT me with a salient, amusing, or clever comment or thought. Esp. if they have a profile photo, description, and web link to their work. I look to see if they engage in conversations or only auto RT others. I DO like a lively convo!  For more & a bonus COMIC  -See my

Anne Harding Training: School libraries in a changing world

Anne Harding Training: School libraries in a changing world | 23things | Scoop.it

Anne Harding:

 

"Two interesting training events last week, both with a school library theme, plus some valuable links and resources for school librarians.

It was fascinating to lead discussions for the London School Library Association branch on the theme of the school library in a changing world. With so many changes that impact on school libraries happening in education and in publishing, as well as the ever evolving digital scene, there was lots to consider. Topics delegates chose to debate included the implications of the Ofsted report Moving English Forward for school librarians, funding issues, raising the profile of the library, information literacy for the Google generation, and how school libraries should deal with e-resources. We talked too about the opportunities social networking offers. The photo is of the lovely library at Lea Valley High School, where the training took place."

 

"For anyone keen to keep up to date with the latest in the school library world, Heart of the School (http://heartoftheschool.edublogs.org/) is a fantastic resource. The School Library Network (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/sln/)  is also invaluable. The School Library Association (http://www.sla.org.uk/) is excellent. All the books in their Guidelines and Case Studies series (http://www.sla.org.uk/guidelines.php) are helpful and accessible. The latest guide, Twitterspace and Facecloud: Web.2.0 and Beyond for School Librarians (http://www.sla.org.uk/publication.php?isbn=9781903446669), is great. For school librarians considering their role in relation to e-resources, this workshop on e-book lending (http://www.peters-books.co.uk/pdf/ebooks.pdf%20)  in schools looks very useful."

So I tasked my very able practicum student Chrissy Sirianni to help me pick some Scoop.its to share, offering a taste of the kind of current awareness the tool provides for school library professionals."

 

Topics covered:

1. Books and reading

2. Librarianship

3. Technology in Education

Everyday Advocacy: Making a case for libraries is easy with web tools. Here’s how to get started.

Everyday Advocacy: Making a case for libraries is easy with web tools. Here’s how to get started. | 23things | Scoop.it

We should all be fighting mad. I’m tired of reading headlines about the obsolescence of libraries and cuts to school programs. Librarians, students, parents, teachers, and community members—all of us should be incensed because our students deserve better. Now more than ever, libraries have become dynamic learning spaces where students develop information literacy skills, conduct research, collaborate, create, and read. It’s time to use the tools at our disposal to demand equity for students in our own districts and across the country. And we have to be willing to take matters into our own hands.
