Curation for schools

Curation tools develop a range of skills for students including information literacy. This excellent set of slides by Lisa Nash looks at the growth of curation, its value to learning and provides an introduction to a range of popular curation tools.

How Does Your Boss See You?: Proof That Principals Value Librarians

How Does Your Boss See You?: Proof That Principals Value Librarians | libraries and education | Scoop.it

Principals value their librarians. They also want them to be more visible leaders.

Those are just two of the interesting findings from a recent survey of 102 media specialists and 67 principals. In fact, 90 percent of the administrators that we surveyed think we have a positive impact in schools—and a large number also feel that our jobs are important.

Paula Correia's curator insight, April 19, 2013 6:06 AM

Os diretores de escolas nos EUA valorizam os seus bibliotecários. 90% dos administradores consideram que o trabalho desenvolvido pelos bibliotecários é importante e tem um impacto positivo nas escolas. Não obstante, os diretores também querem que os bibliotecários se tornem líderes mais visíveis. Estas são apenas duas das conclusões interessantes de uma pesquisa recente.

Manifesto for 21st Century Teacher Librarians | Teacher Librarian

Manifesto for 21st Century Teacher Librarians | Teacher Librarian | libraries and education | Scoop.it

A couple of summers back a young school librarian, fresh out of library school, asked a very honest question at one of our state retreats:

 

We’re all doing different stuff. The other school librarians I know are not doing what I am doing. Some maintain Web sites and blogs; others do not. Some have seriously retooled; others have not. In the 21st century, what does a school librarian do?

 

Well into the 21st century, it is clear that the concept of modern teacher librarian practice is not clear. There is no textbook for what effective practice looks like in continually morphing information and communication landscapes.

Rethinking the Library to Improve Information Literacy

Rethinking the Library to Improve Information Literacy | libraries and education | Scoop.it

The only thing that we still need to work on is making aware all the other participants of the school community that the change is necessara and that one of the solutions IS collaboration. Furthermore, we need to get them going on accepting the new trends, curricualar reforms and leaving the old teching styles behind them.

Interesting game which tests your knowledge of plagiarism. Done very simple but being right on the spot of the problem. This is a link to the game, but if you go one step back than prior to the game you have some nice tutorials.

How To Make Students Better Online Researchers

How To Make Students Better Online Researchers | libraries and education | Scoop.it

Getting kids to really focus on what exactly they are searching for, and then be able to further distill idea into a few key specific search terms is a skill that we must teach students, and we have to do it over and over again. We never question the vital importance of teaching literacy, but we have to be mindful that there are many kinds of “literacies”. An ever more important one that ALL teachers need to be aware of is digital literacy.

Aren't we already the “digital literacy corps”? Employ trained, certified professionals please

Aren't we already the “digital literacy corps”? Employ trained, certified professionals please | libraries and education | Scoop.it

Fran Bullington - As an educator, I realize the importance of information and digital literacy. As a school librarian, I have been trained to teach information literacy skills. I collaborate with classroom teachers to teach lessons in which I incorporate these skills.However, the recession has had an enormous impact on school libraries. Many programs have been completely cut; others are being run by volunteers rather than a certified school librarian; and other programs have lost their assistants, whose job of handling routine procedures freed the school librarian to plan with teachers.

 

I noticed that the FCC is considering “a proposal to spend $200 million to create a digital literacy corps. This group of hundreds, even thousands, of trainers would fan out to schools and libraries to teach productive uses of computers for parents, students and job seekers.”

 

Although I applaud the intent of teaching digital literacy skills to our students, I question the expenditure of these funds. Why not instead funnel these funds into school library programs to allow trained, certified professionals to teach the skills?

I look forward to hearing from you on this vital issue.

Welcome

Welcome | libraries and education | Scoop.it

What is librarianship when it is unmoored from cataloging, books, buildings, and committees? In The Atlas of New Librarianship, R. David Lankes offers a guide to this new landscape for practitioners. He describes a new librarianship based not on books and artifacts but on knowledge and learning; and he suggests a new mission for librarians: to improve society through facilitating knowledge creation in their communities.
