The Role of the Teacher Librarian (Library Media Specialist) BACIRC

The Role of the Teacher Librarian (Library Media Specialist) BACIRC | Information Powerhouses | Scoop.it

It has been interesting to hear the reactions from many who do not know what a Teacher Librarian does in the day-to-day life of the school library. A relative of mine jokingly said to my daughter: “So what did she do to win this award… invent a new Dewey Decimal System or a new way of filing?” … I want to thank my two Cert III qualified Library Assistants who make it possible for me to do much less of the “book” work behind the scenes (shelving, cataloguing, covering) and a lot more of the specialized teaching role that is that of Teacher Librarian!

Librarians on the Fly: Myth #7: Library Skills Take 15 Minutes to Master

Librarians on the Fly: Myth #7: Library Skills Take 15 Minutes to Master | Information Powerhouses | Scoop.it

When school resumes each year, one common request I receive is for an overview of the resources in the library.... "Maybe for the first or last 15 minutes of class." These requests are not asking for a library orientation, rather a crash course in subscription databases.

The library: a community's place to gather

The library: a community's place to gather | Information Powerhouses | Scoop.it

Communities are repositories of a different kind of knowledge. If libraries understand their role as stewards of this, a knowledge that has been historically disadvantaged and underprivileged, then their role in the world of ebooks and free Internet becomes abundantly clear. In an era of greater access to conventional knowledge, libraries must facilitate community engagement by providing citizens access to each other and to local communal knowledge, and seek ways to provide space and opportunities for future creation and capture of this knowledge.

Staff Development Ideas On This List: The 33 Digital Skills Every 21st Century Teacher should Have

Staff Development Ideas On This List:    The 33 Digital Skills Every 21st Century Teacher should Have | Information Powerhouses | Scoop.it

Every single teacher is concerned about his/ her teaching practices and the skills involved in this process. How many times have you wondered about a better way to teach the same lesson you have delivered to an eariler class? How often have you used technology to engage your students and improve their learning ? These are some recurring questions we keep regurgitating each time our teaching skills are put to the test.

How Does Your Boss See You?: Proof That Principals Value Librarians

How Does Your Boss See You?: Proof That Principals Value Librarians | Information Powerhouses | Scoop.it

Principals value their librarians. They also want them to be more visible leaders.

Those are just two of the interesting findings from a recent survey of 102 media specialists and 67 principals. In fact, 90 percent of the administrators that we surveyed think we have a positive impact in schools—and a large number also feel that our jobs are important.

Os diretores de escolas nos EUA valorizam os seus bibliotecários. 90% dos administradores consideram que o trabalho desenvolvido pelos bibliotecários é importante e tem um impacto positivo nas escolas. Não obstante, os diretores também querem que os bibliotecários se tornem líderes mais visíveis. Estas são apenas duas das conclusões interessantes de uma pesquisa recente.

How To Capture Ideas at Presentations and Events by Doing Visual Recording on the iPad

Robin Good: Rachel Smith explains in very simple words how you can use your iPad to capture and record visually the key ideas and concepts presented during a lecture, keynote, training class or presentation.

She provides a good round-up of four relevant tools that can be used for this task, analyzing their key pros and cons as well as providing logistic and technical advice on how to best organize and setup yourself for doing visual recording on the iPad.

As similar tools will provide more ready-made icons, templates and patterns available for this kind of real-time idea-capturing, this rare and pioneering visual recording work will begin to catch up even more rapidly.

 

Very useful. 8/10
