Free Technology for Teachers: The Teacher-Librarian is Your Best Tech Resource

Free Technology for Teachers: The Teacher-Librarian is Your Best Tech Resource | Integral to learning: the school library in C21 | Scoop.it

The school librarian, once known for handling books, is now responsible for both print and nonprint resources. The job description has changed more in the last two decades than any other teaching position.

If you are a K12 educator, you are aware of the term "technology integration", but did you know that perhaps your greatest assistance can come from the school media specialist (or teacher-librarian)? Let's talk about what kind of help you can expect.......

SCIS | Teacher librarians as cultural change agents

SCIS | Teacher librarians as cultural change agents | Integral to learning: the school library in C21 | Scoop.it

"Teacher librarians are involved in the process of change whether they are implementing a program for the first time, making changes to an established program, or participating in some aspect of ongoing school improvement" (Oberg, 1990). The very essence of the work of teacher librarians – improving teaching and learning – requires that they work within the culture of the school and that they also work to change the culture of the school."
