100 Things Kids Will Miss ( if they don't have a Teacher Librarian in their school)

100 Things Kids Will Miss ( if they don't have a Teacher Librarian in their school) | Libraries and Learning | Scoop.it

To start with...

1.Books that are professionally selected to meet school and personal needs.

2.Equitable access to computers and other forms of technology.

3.Someone to talk to and someone who listens – the school librarian.

4.A place to get help when they need it. A place to assemble with their friends openly

New Report Highlights School Libraries' Promotion of Digital Literacy

New Report Highlights School Libraries' Promotion of Digital Literacy | Libraries and Learning | Scoop.it

“School libraries always have been interdisciplinary spaces deeply connected to the curriculum, instrumental in developing students' research and information literacy skills, and committed to creating an environment of free reading that supports lifelong learning and curiosity. These traditional roles and strengths are increasingly critical as society faces a deluge of digital information, and the lines between content user and content creator are blurred and even actively deconstructed.”
