This is an excellent idea for public libraries to consider, especially as a way of getting your teen and young adult clients to come back into your libraries to use the space even though they may never use your collections.

For those of you who have lockers at school.  Students could also add these to Edmodo, Moodle, or in our case, their Google Sites!

Linda Dougherty's curator insight, April 11, 2013 12:03 AM

Great idea to share with our reading crew who are always in the Library.

Elizabeth Hutchinson's curator insight, April 13, 2013 3:48 AM

Great idea! Have you ever done the toilet door to tell students about new books? You have a targeted audience that have nothing else to read :) I know it's slightly different but just thought I'd mention it.

The League of Extraordinary Librarians: media specialists are leading the way as tech superheroes

The League of Extraordinary Librarians: media specialists are leading the way as tech superheroes | HS library | Scoop.it

Meet the latest tech superheroes: school librarians. According to School Library Journal’s 2012 School Technology Survey, media specialists are leading the charge to bring new media, mobile devices, social apps, and web-based technologies into our nation’s classrooms.

 

So far, the results have been pretty impressive: 87 percent of school librarians report that they’re in charge of their library’s technology, with 60 percent adding that they’ve also introduced it into the classroom. Furthermore, 44 percent now serve on their school’s tech team, and in these budget-troubled times, when many library positions are on the line, that role may mean increased job security. In fact, 55 percent of the elementary, middle, and high school librarians that responded to our survey say that their tech skills have increased their value in administrators’ eyes.

Teacher librarians are too important to cut - Standard-Examiner

There have been good things happening in the Ogden School District. There is passion to see that students’ test scores improve and students graduate with the skills they will need for the work they do and the lives they will lead.

 

The primary purpose of the library media program is to empower students to be critical thinkers, make informed choices and be problem solvers. Dr. William A Sederburg, recently retired Utah Commissioner of Higher Education, said “Preserving and expanding school libraries are essential to our success in this information-intensive age. The school library isn’t your mother’s library anymore.”
