With the belief in learner centered education and inquiry based learning, BYOD programs are a natural fit for the PYP framework.  With tools in the hands of students, questiosn can be asked and searched for as and when it is needed.

Zac Hawkins’ Plea for Classroom BYOD | Powerful Learning Practice

Zac Hawkins’ Plea for Classroom BYOD | Powerful Learning Practice | Education in the Digital World | Scoop.it

As Zac notes in this article, which he wrote spontaneously on his “Bring Your Own Device” while at school, many teachers have been reluctant to allow technology into their classrooms, even if they have that option. Zac suggests it’s a trust issue — teachers don’t trust students and students decline to demonstrate that they’re trustworthy because they feel they are being denied access to what (to them) is a tool for everyday learning in the real world.

This isn’t your mom’s high school library.

 

At the Elizabeth Forward High School library in Elizabeth, PA, beanbag chairs have replaced study carrels, computers are everywhere, and instead of a cranky librarian telling kids to be quiet, there’s a new music studio. Welcome to the new EF Media Center.

The 7 Critical Services All Libraries Should Offer | Edudemic

The 7 Critical Services All Libraries Should Offer | Edudemic | Education in the Digital World | Scoop.it

Libraries are changing. They’re becoming an online resource for students of all ages, a meeting place for the entire community of a school, and bridging the gap between school and home. That’s just a few of the ways outlined in this handy roadmap / visual embedded below.

 

As you can see, it lays out a handful of ways libraries impact learning. From the first step (offer access to electronic resources) to the last one (enable social collaboration), it’s clear the role of the library is extremely important. While I personally think each of these services is of the utmost importance, there are even more things I believe a library should be doing. From figuring out future trends of data storage, Open Access, and identifying new ways to open up the virtual stacks to the world.

 

It remains to be seen how libraries will evolve over the coming years but it’s a great time to start paying attention to what your library is doing during this time education evolution. Is your local school or community library offering these services outlined below?
