School Libraries | State of America's Libraries Report 2014

School Libraries | State of America's Libraries Report 2014 | Libraries and education futures | Scoop.it
The School Libraries section of the 2014 State of America's Libraries Report provides an overview of the top school library trends of the past year.
School libraries are at a critical point: Budget and testing pressures have led to decisions to eliminate or deprofessionalize school libraries, but the increased emphasis on college and career readiness and the integration of technology makes them more critical than ever. School librarians’ collaboration with other educators is key to literacy and imlementation of Common Core State Standards. The American Library Association (ALA) is undertaking an advocacy campaign for school libraries that sets goals in five critical areas.

Good read.

Maria Jose Vitorino's curator insight, April 17, 1:12 AM

Muitos exames sobrepostos não substituem uma boa escola, e não há boas escolas que não exijam boas bibliotecas.

A New York Public School Teacher on the Infuriating State Test That Is Turning Kids Off to Learning | Libraries and education futures | Scoop.it
When many of my students entered my third-grade classroom this year, they told me they didn’t like to read, and they definitely didn’t like to write. I made them a promise that by the end of third grade, I would change their minds. Before the winter’s end, many of my...

On “hacking” school library or crowdsourcing innovation (PLEASE SHARE YOUR HACKS!) — @joycevalenza NeverEndingSearch

On “hacking” school library or crowdsourcing innovation (PLEASE SHARE YOUR HACKS!) — @joycevalenza NeverEndingSearch | Libraries and education futures | Scoop.it

My talk at the conference is about sweet spots and it is also about hacking.

Dave Lankes tells us, “The mission of librarians is to improve society through facilitating knowledge creation in their communities.  Serve, lead, innovate.”  [My emphasis!]

Right now, I see sweet spots.  I see so many innovative opportunities to hack old notions in order to better serve and lead.  Technologies for curation, communication, creation, and collaboration, are widely available and largely free. They allow us to leverage and scale our talents to facilitate knowledge creation–to be even more responsive to the needs of our communities.  I see this as the very moment, the sweet spot, for hacking library.

We need to hack walls and hours. Our virtual libraries must be embedded into classrooms during the school day, available for those learners who opt out of the traditional classroom environment, and ever-ready for those who choose to do their learning after 3 PM.

We have the capacity to be open 24/7.  We have the capacity to be just-in-time, just-for-me.  It is so easy for us to be an app.  I’ve had kids help me make library apps.  I want to see every kid in America flexing bigger and more powerful apps than the ones they currently carry on their phones and tablets. Everything we buy for them, every instructional resource we create and curate for them, ought to be where they need it most, whenever they need it.  Every kid ought to be able to carry a library in his or her pocket.

We need to hack collection.  Collections do not serve communities if they are not accessible and responsive.  Collection is no longer merely what we buy and own.  Collection is what we point to, curate, make discoverable, create context around.  Tools like the Web2MARC generator make grabbing free web content easy.

How to Reinvent Project Based Learning to Be More Meaningful

How to Reinvent Project Based Learning to Be More Meaningful | Libraries and education futures | Scoop.it
Project-based learning continues to be misinterpreted as a single teaching strategy rather than as a set of design principles that allow us to introduce the philosophy of inquiry into education in an intelligent and grounded way. It’s time to not only address the flaws in PBL, but to reinvent it in a way that leads to deeper learning, creative inquiry, and a better fit with a collaborative world in which doing and knowing are one thing.

Is Stocking Library Shelves with Nonfiction Content a Waste of Money? | CTQ

Is Stocking Library Shelves with Nonfiction Content a Waste of Money? | CTQ | Libraries and education futures | Scoop.it

I've been thinking a lot about the school library this week and I've come to a conclusion that might just be half-baked and is definitely going to rile more than a few book lovers up:  The cash that schools spend stocking nonfiction titles in the library is wasted and would be better spent on classroom devices that can be used to access the web.

Right shift learning in the project based history classroom. I've been using iterations of Scrum, Agile and am now honing in on Right Shift Learning since the 2011-2012 school year. I love what iterations offer, the opportunity for me to fess up to how poorly I utilized theses processes early on, and continue to learn how to be better. I get to say that was an earlier iteration.
