Sue Kowalski's insight:

Librarians love GOOGLE, too....BUT, we want to empower learners to maximize the benefits of it, not be lost in the vast world of inaccurate abd overwhelming information that lacks crediblity.  Librarains can help you make the connections. Let them (us) be your guide to ethical information in an efficient way.

I'm using it for PLN but to be honest I prefer scoop.it. Looking forward to watching how to use it in school for academic research. I hope that I will start to find it more useful.

The boundaries between the virtual and real world are almost diminishing as more and more technology is being integrated into our lives. A quick glance at our students' lifestyles is enough to provide you with a clear picture of how digitally focused they are . As teachers entrusted with helping these digital natives flourish and thrive in friendly and healthy learning environments, we are also responsible for teaching them the norms of appropriate, responsible behavior with regard to technology use.

Libraries have the potential to significantly enhance the development of life-long learners through excellent provision of expertise, resources and spaces.  There are some great NZ examples referred to in this post.

pru's curator insight, June 7, 2013 6:06 PM

There are challenges for school libraries in balancing these spaces, particularly collection space. Once the overriding priority, have we gone too far in rationalising physical collection space and thus risked devaluing what is part of a library's unique value? Of course making virtual collections visible in our space is also important.

Latest Study: A full-time school librarian makes a critical difference in boosting student achievement | School Library Journal

Latest Study: A full-time school librarian makes a critical difference in boosting student achievement | School Library Journal | Innovative Leadership in School Libraries | Scoop.it

Simply put, students suffer when they don’t have adequate resources—and, in particular, we’ve found that student achievement suffers when schools lack libraries that are staffed by full-time librarians. “Nearly every public school in Bucks, Delaware, and Montgomery Counties has a library with certified staff, which has been proven to increase student reading and comprehension,” notes Kintisch. “In contrast, most public schools in Philadelphia do not employ a certified librarian, and more than 140 do not have a library.”

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, March 12, 2013 11:01 AM

Kieth Curry Lance's decade long research studies established (beyond any doubt) that a professionally staffed library is essential for student achievement. It never hurts to be shown the obvious truth (over and over again).


When will the decision makers stop the lip service and pay attention to the research? School Libraries and Librarians WORK!
