The bookish teacher: Research matters

The bookish teacher: Research matters | Information Powerhouses | Scoop.it

"On one hand, teaching our students about how to conduct good quality research is pretty much the most important skill we can impart, and should ideally form the foundation of everything we do. On the other hand, I live in the real world and know how hard it is to both find the time to foster and develop such skills in our students, and what a difficult task it actually is."

The need to shift and widen school library advocacy efforts - Gary Hartzell

For more than twenty years, school librarians have focused the largest portion of their advocacy efforts on individual principals, superintendents, and board members, struggling to convince them that libraries should be integral and institutionalized elements of K-12 education. It hasn’t worked.


Libraries and librarians remain frighteningly vulnerable to cuts, even elimination, in schools everywhere. These individualized field-based advocacy efforts may have forestalled greater disaster, but they have not and cannot by themselves make libraries and librarians secure in our schools.


To do that librarians need to widen their advocacy efforts and give priority to two new targets: (1) the educational administration (Ed Ad) professors who shape beginning administrators’ perceptions and values and (2) the professional associations that have a powerful influence on how administrators approach their work challenges once they are in the field. In effect, this widening represents a shift from battling for current school leaders’ support to preemptively conditioning the next generation of administrators to support libraries as they take up their new responsibilities.

"We’re also pretty useful in the classroom. Embedded librarians can add an entirely new level of depth to a class. Even if not embedded, librarians can help faculty identify really useful works to support their class. These can be publicly available, through the library, or even rare books and archival material that students might never even imagine looking for on their own. Librarians can help collaborate on assignments. We have lots of good tips for how to make an assignment that’s difficult to plagiarize, and we definitely can help faculty plan the library research part of the assignment to fit with the collections students have access to. And if we don’t have the collections the faculty member wants, through discussions and collaborations we can often identify what they do need and get the source for future use..."

10 things school libraries can learn from the Apple Store!

10 things school libraries can learn from the Apple Store! | Information Powerhouses | Scoop.it

Much has been written about the structures, the founders and the personalities that have moulded the image of the amazingly successful business – Apple. Not only have we, the consumer, been able to establish new day-to-day routines by using the numerous Apple products on the market, but, aware of it or not, our lives have been deeply impacted and altered.

 

The author of this post wondered how school libraries would be if we were to adopt these features, internalizing them into our everyday operations, making them an integral part of our service delivery. How would our patrons – both staff and students – benefit if we were to tweak our services to fit the Apple model.

At its core, the issues associated with mobile learning get to the very fundamentals of what happens in class everyday. At their best, cell phones and mobile devices seamlessly facilitate what students and teachers already do in thriving, inspiring classrooms. Students communicate and collaborate with each other and the teacher.

 

They apply facts and information they’ve found to formulate or back up their ideas. They create projects to deepen their understanding, association with, and presentation of ideas.
