The library is not just a book warehouse anymore

The library is not just a book warehouse anymore | Engaging students in the 21st century | Scoop.it
The librarian’s role has changed less than that of the library. “Think of us as knowledge and information curators – we bring together the best resources from across all dissemination platforms together for our patrons,” says Ms. Guinn.

 

At public libraries everywhere, that’s meant a new focus on teaching new groups of users – immigrants, homeless people, teenagers, seniors – not just how to find a print volume, but how to work with all the different kinds of technology to find the most reliable information on the Internet, download a book remotely to their e-readers, and get children excited about reading....and that includes using social networking!

The courage to change | Powerful Learning Practice

The courage to change | Powerful Learning Practice | Engaging students in the 21st century | Scoop.it

I think all teachers must have times when they’re faced with the decision to continue on the safe road that they know, or radically depart on a way that they believe to be better, but the specific route and outcomes are unknown. At least I’ve been faced with this decision. And in all honesty, sometimes I’ve chosen the former, and sometimes the latter. Although for the last five months, I’ve consistently chosen the latter, and they have been the most challenging and fulfilling five months of my career.
