Now available: IFLA Statement on Libraries and Development

Now available: IFLA Statement on Libraries and Development | Readnlearn | Scoop.it

IFLA is pleased to announce the publication of a Statement on Libraries and Development. The IFLA Governing Board approved the Statement on the 16th of August 2013. The UN is currently reviewing both the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS), which includes the Internet Governance Forum (IGF). In the past decade IFLA has engaged with both processes in a variety of ways, from shaping documents and policies to reporting on implementation progress through public workshops and consultations. Reports on the MDGs and WSIS are due to be delivered to the UN Secretary General in 2015 and will influence the composition of any new UN development framework. IFLA is already joined the discussion about what a framework should look like, and will continue to engage in the process as it matures. The new statement sets out a clear vision of how libraries contribute to development, and urges policymakers and development practitioners to leverage libraries.

Librarians, you cannot afford to have an adversarial relationship with their principals. You cannot even afford principals who are "agents of benevolent neglect." You need an administrator who actively supports you and your program.

This is a good question. Is it baby steps, or just throw all out with the bathwater and start afresh?

Helen Rowling's curator insight, September 13, 2013 2:42 PM

Not regurgitation of old information but the development of new information, that is what is required for promoting sustainable growth....inquiry-based learning excites the researchers/learners/students and develops another part of the brain....involve students in real-life problems to encourage thinkers....I agree - a new way, new specifically designed tasks for inquiry.

4 Innovative Libraries Transforming Lives Around the World

4 Innovative Libraries Transforming Lives Around the World | Readnlearn | Scoop.it

Only about a third of the world's population has access to the internet. Here in the United States, libraries have become a major source of Internet access for people who otherwise can't afford computers or net access -- and the same goes for libraries around the world. Giving people access to the Internet in a public setting doesn't mean handing them a free pass to infinite animated GIFs; it means jobs, health information, and education.

Designing for Learning's curator insight, December 2, 2013 8:37 PM

Sometimes it's worth reflecting the range of ways in which learning has been considered over time. I don't think it's going to become any less complex as we explore both new paradigms and interactions between old ones.

I Declare an… iPad Oath - TechChef

I Declare an… iPad Oath - TechChef | Readnlearn | Scoop.it

"So… we have reflected, oriented, and even fostered formative assessment. Think this might be a good time to solemnly declare… an oath. These previous posts (linked above**) have laid the ground work to prepare for a transformative year with mobile devices.

 

Last year the middle school felt a need to create an iPad Oath that addressed specific classroom behaviors and legislated appropriate use beyond the existing R.U.G. (Responsible Use Guidelines). After reviewing multiple middle school AUP’s and iPad forms online and our own existing elementary iPad Oath, I decided to concoct one of my own using similar ingredients. (The back of the form includes a space for both parent and student signature.)"

Read It Daddy!: Why schools need libraries! One little girl's perspective | Readnlearn | Scoop.it

Yesterday she came home for the first time with a school library book. The book choice wasn't important (she chose an illustrated book about Pinocchio - based on the Disney movie) but what was vitally important was her reaction to being allowed into the school library for the first time, with her own library ticket, to make her own choice of a book to take home for a couple of weeks.
