This post will explore some digital resources to provide educators with tools to help all students become savvy searchers and independent learners."

The Role of the Teacher Librarian (Library Media Specialist) BACIRC

The Role of the Teacher Librarian (Library Media Specialist) BACIRC | Digital Literacy Skills for High School Students | Scoop.it

It has been interesting to hear the reactions from many who do not know what a Teacher Librarian does in the day-to-day life of the school library. A relative of mine jokingly said to my daughter: “So what did she do to win this award… invent a new Dewey Decimal System or a new way of filing?” … I want to thank my two Cert III qualified Library Assistants who make it possible for me to do much less of the “book” work behind the scenes (shelving, cataloguing, covering) and a lot more of the specialized teaching role that is that of Teacher Librarian!
