Ten Tough Questions for Digital Learning Day

Deborah Owen's insight:

Justin asks really good questions about how we integrate digital tools. We should be looking for answers to these questions. The bottom line: Can we measure and demonstrate that the technology we use is actually enhancing student learning? Or is it just more of the same, but "easier" with a computer?

What Does Excellence Look Like?: A new study shows the role of school libraries in learning

What Does Excellence Look Like?: A new study shows the role of school libraries in learning | Hudson HS Learning Commons | Scoop.it
Deborah Owen's insight:

Outstanding article on school libraries! Please read!

"

“I think calling it a library is not accurate—to me it’s become a learning center that has resources,” said one principal. “When I see students in here, they’re doing research, maybe teacher-directed, but you know, I see a lot of them come in just to find out general information, to learn something—maybe not related to school, so to me it goes far beyond what we thought a library was.”

Not only do librarians enable learning, research also shows that they shape how learning takes place by helping teachers push the boundaries and innovate. As one principal said, “We do a lot of interdisciplinary teaching.... I think that our media specialists have enabled us to make that push, to be better at taking risks, and to do things that are normally outside of the box.”
