Librarians, Technology, And The New Literacies

Librarians, Technology, And The New Literacies | Design in Education | Scoop.it

"The role of librarians in modern schools is more crucial than ever. In an age of dynamic information and media streams, librarians are uniquely positioned to guide students in research and storytelling tools."

This post provide a look at the many literacies that we are responsible for teaching, and although it i geared towards librarians the concepts apply to teachers across the disciplines.

Today we no longer define literacy as reading and writing. The types of literacy continue to grow and include (but are not limited to) visual, information, technological, scientific, critical, mathematical...the list goes on.

If you are looking for a short list of benefits of using technology tools, a look at how storytelling and research help students learn, or more information in the area of the new literacies in general check out this post.

Hall, Mercer and Russac, Patricia A.(2013). Librarians, technology and the new literacies. The ASIDE blog _Innovation Design In_underneath everything is information. Retrieved from http://theasideblog.blogspot.com/2013/01/librarians-technology-and-new-literacies.html
Librarians are poised to be on the front lines in delivering instruction and resources to help in understanding various literacies. They often know whole school curriculum and have the capacity to enrich daily lessons and educational units. When librarians shape information in well-conceived, visual ways, students can become motivated, self-directed learners who create their own content and publish their own work.

A librarian's role is also evolving as "literacy" in its traditional sense is changing. It's not just that e-readers have joined classic texts, or that online sources have joined traditional journals. It is much more. Multiple literacies are continually growing to require mastery in more than one, and librarians are poised to be on the front lines in delivering instruction and resources to help in this understanding.

Media Literacy, Powerfully: A Model for School Librarian and Classroom Teacher Collaboration — @Peter_Gutierrez Connect the Pop

"One of the joys of writing articles for any magazine is all the interesting, sometimes inspiring, people you get to meet along the way; often, though, this is barely reflected in the published story, which might include only one or two quotes from such folks. Well, that’s the situation I encountered with SLJ’s February issue, in which I have an article on online media literacy. In the course of my research I ended up getting a lot of great information from Mercer Hall and Patricia Russac, a classroom teacher and Library Director/history teacher at Buckley Country Day School in Roslyn, New York. So much so that I  wanted to share their full and exceedingly thoughtful responses to my queries. So please consider the below “outtakes” or “deleted scenes” from the article, but ones that ended up on the cutting room floor not because of quality but rather simple space constraints. The first part is mostly a forceful rationale for media literacy education (with some helpful links) while the second shows how to implement such goals with all the practical, curricular, project-based learning that Hall and Russac create around MLE. For more – much, much more, actually – I urge you to visit their blog for the American Society for Innovative Design in Education (ASIDE)." - Peter Gutierrez
