The School Libraries section of the 2014 State of America's Libraries Report provides an overview of the top school library trends of the past year.
School libraries are at a critical point: Budget and testing pressures have led to decisions to eliminate or deprofessionalize school libraries, but the increased emphasis on college and career readiness and the integration of technology makes them more critical than ever. School librarians’ collaboration with other educators is key to literacy and imlementation of Common Core State Standards. The American Library Association (ALA) is undertaking an advocacy campaign for school libraries that sets goals in five critical areas.

Cindy Tschernitz's insight:

THIS IS WHY I READ - A conference for teacher librarians, library managers, librarians, teachers and school leaders.

 

Presented by SLAV in partnership with the NGV, Friday November 22nd, 2013

8:45 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. at the NGV International - 10 St Kilda Road, Melbourne.

 

The theme of this conference is reading and the experience and value of reading in today’s world.

 

Access to text has never been greater, however, literacy rates are decreasing and the ability of read effectively can be the cause of major disadvantage and social divide. 

 

So what is the place of reading for our students, how does it fit into the Australian Curriculum and how does reading impact on other literacies required to be a successful learner?

 

This conference encourages you to reflect on your own interpretation of what it means to read and the impact that has on your teaching, learning and school library collection and the importance of reading and literacy within the Australian Curriculum. 

 

Presentations include : Dr Christine Nicholls, Senior Lecturer in Australian Studies at Flinders University who will present the keynote address.  Michelle Stockley, Senior Educator NGV who will explore the resources of the NGV that can be used in support of the Australian curriculum. 

 

A panel discussion “Is reading changing and why do we read?” will seek opinions from Dr Susan La Marca, Kirsty Murray, Jordi Kerr, Davina Bell, and Jasmine Chua .

 

Concurrent sessions will be held in the morning at NGVI and after lunch in NGVA and will include author Kirsty Murray, Melbourne NOW artist Maree Clarke, Davina Bell, editor for the Our Australian Girl and Do You Dare at Penguin Random House and Educators from the NGV.

 

Registration form is available at http://www.slav.schools.net.au/downloads/07conference/22_11_2013rego.pdf

EducationSurvey 2013: Your comments – technology, teacher librarians

EducationSurvey 2013: Your comments – technology, teacher librarians | Bleeding EdgeSchool Libraries | Scoop.it
OUR annual EducationSurvey asked school staff across Australia for their views on the issues affecting the sector. Thousands of people took part. In part four of our wrap up, here are just some of ...

 

TEACHER LIBRARIANS

“Of great concern to me is the reduction in the number of Australian primary schools with a qualified teacher-librarian on staff. At a time when so much Federal BER funding has been put into primary school libraries, it is indeed a contradiction that primary school principals are allowed to continue down this road. I believe that deteriorating literacy levels are related to this current trend.”

“Most teachers are unaware of the role of the teacher-librarian. I have to place myself in the view of teachers to let them know what services I offer (though it is sometimes hard to collaborate due to time constraints).”

“It is sad to see so many Qld state schools totally dissolving the place of a trained teacher librarian. So much money spent on new libraries, yet many principals choosing to have teacher aides run the library and spend their funds on a HOC – who is more expensive than a teacher librarian to have on staff. If literacy is a major focus, why get rid of trained teacher librarians??”

“I am alarmed that teacher-librarians are a dying profession. There were costly BER buildings erected and these need to be correctly staffed. At the rate information and cyber bullying is expanding TLs are needed more than ever.”
