Connecting the Classroom and the Library: How One School Uses Web-Based Library Projects to Build Information-Literacy Skills

Connecting the Classroom and the Library: How One School Uses Web-Based Library Projects to Build Information-Literacy Skills | Future of School Libraries | Scoop.it

The first step we took in 1999 was to stop teaching isolated library skills classes. We began reinforcing information-literacy skills through class projects. At that time, we employed traditional strategies, including paper pathfinders and guided lab sessions.

Sarah McElrath's insight:

Research has shown teaching isolated library skills is ineffective.

School librarians play a critical role in today's schools--more critical than ever before. This report details some of their concerns.

Via Bookmarking Librarian
Sarah McElrath's insight:

Of course, this doesn't address one of my major concerns as a school librarian -- the fact that more and more librarians are being cut or spread between several buildings. The knowledge and skills required are going up, while the time in each library is going down. Doesn't bode well for being highly effective.

21st-Century Libraries: The Learning Commons

21st-Century Libraries: The Learning Commons | Future of School Libraries | Scoop.it
Libraries become a different kind of learning destination when schools reimagine them as open, transparent spaces that invite student communication and collaboration.
Sarah McElrath's insight:

"The libraries of the 21st century provide a welcoming common space that encourages exploration, creation, and collaboration between students, teachers, and a broader community. They bring together the best of the physical and digital to create learning hubs. Ultimately, libraries will continue to inspire students to construct new knowledge and meaning from the world around them."


I agree.
