We stand at the crossroads of two futures for Australian children. The first sees them navigating an increasingly interconnected world as savvy consumers and producers of information who are capable of critically assessing what they read, see and hear. The second sees many of them as simplistic, non-discerning searchers probably plagiarising much of what they produce, easy prey for those who wish to fool them.
What is the best way to ensure the first scenario? Make sure we have enough teacher librarians in our schools.
