School libraries help students learn...

This is what I believe. And my research (and the research of many others!) supports this belief.

I use this blog to share new research and literature highlighting the many ways school libraries support teaching and learning in schools. It has provided a (somewhat brief) commentary on new resources and ideas, emerging theories and technologies, and best practice in teacher librarianship since its inception.

From 2011 I broadened the content of this blog to include musings on my learning and teaching experiences as a distance educator in the higher education sector, as one who thrives on testing and trialling new technologies to support her students’ learning.
