Libraries should be more than rooms

Oct. 28 is School Library Day in B.C. This should be a cause for celebration. The promotion of literacy and the acquisition of learning and thinking skills must be goals for all of our children. . . .

Via Barb Stripling: "At this moment we are facing a serious threat to school libraries, and thus to the entire library ecosystem."

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 17, 1:44 PM

Libraries can be great places. They are human spaces with adults who help children in schools. It is more than the books, but they are important as well. They let us travel in our imagination.

Stories on an Interactive Map -- New Digital Story Tool

Stories on an Interactive Map -- New Digital Story Tool | Content curation and school libraries | Scoop.it

Karen Dietz's curator insight, March 11, 11:16 AM

Here's another new and interesting digital tool for storytelling. Called "Findery", it lets you write stories about where you've been and leave them on an interactive map.


Now this can be really cool. Or not -- depending on if stories/anecdotes/vignettes are really shared. I think if people were posting a bunch of opinions or thoughts like "What a wonderful place! Really liked the redwoods" would be boring.


So I checked out the map and some of the postings. Yep -- no stories. Boring stuff. Some photos. Some descriptions. Yawn.


Yet I think if a company was able to use this tool and generate a map of stories -- think along their supply chain, or in the creation of a product -- it could be really cool. But I'm not sure the tool is set up that way.


And Findery seems also more like another twist on a social media platform. So if a company builds a story map, it stays on the platform. Darn.


OK -- so maybe there are better tools out there for businesses to use to craft and share stories visually in new and interesting ways. Or maybe one of you can build it!


In the meantime, check out Findery and see what you think. Maybe you'll find a cool use for it that I missed.

The Need for the School Library

The Need for the School Library | Content curation and school libraries | Scoop.it
According to an article written for the Voice of San Diego, many of the
libraries in public schools across the city are not staffed.  The reason
for this lack of staff comes from, suprise, lack of funding, but also from
union rules that state librarians, library assistants and techs cannot be
replaced by a volunteer or staff that would replace the job of the above
positions in any meaningful way.  This causes the great support structure a
school librarian can give to a classroom, helping not only in research for
the students but for information for teachers.
