Are School Libraries Becoming Obsolete?

Are School Libraries Becoming Obsolete? | School libraries and learning | Scoop.it

 There has been a great deal of commentary and discussion resulting from the original article   take a look at this interview.    Yet more thinking about taking the library service out of the library  -- What does embedded librarianship look like???Participatory - not confined to the four walls of the library

 

"Once you remove yourself from the physical constraints of the library, you have more freedom, because you aren't limited by the title and the expectations of the job. If you get out of your library and take your knowledge everywhere, then you become a resource--no longer the keeper of a physical space or objects. You can focus on the most important skills that students need. You can take a fresh look at your curriculum and decide what's really important for your students to experience."

Aggregate, Curate and Create Your Own Textbook | Powerful Learning Practice | School libraries and learning | Scoop.it

"We are seeing more and more publishers jumping into the digital textbook market but so far the digital editions are mere pdf versions of the hardcover versions. Moreover, these e-textbooks are still very expensive."

"Here are some guiding questions for creating your digital textbook: How are the learners going to use the information?How will they demonstrate their learning? Are they completing a document, creating an outline or answering a set of questions? What are the assessments associated with the material?"

Library as a pedagogical third place!  Hack the Learner Experience, or Get Yourself Some Pedagogical Perspective - The Ubiquitous Librarian - The Chronicle of Higher Education | School libraries and learning | Scoop.it

Let’s keep this rolling for all the ubiquitous librarians out there. I want to post more but the tradeoff is that I need to write less. You know, only so much time in the day/night…

I mentioned back in January that Char Booth and I were working on a project together. That’s finally wrapped up and we packaged it all together:

Education Recovery Plan (draft) for CHCH - Derek's Blog »

Education Recovery Plan (draft) for CHCH - Derek's Blog » | School libraries and learning | Scoop.it

The destruction caused by the earthquakes has created an "opportunity is taken to 'think afresh' about how a 'city-wide' provision of education services that extends beyond each individual school thinking just of its own needs and services".

How will we provision library services to schools/students  in Christchurch in the future?  Read the draft plan, and make you submisions.  It is a great opportunity to think expansively and differently about how we can serve students, teachers, learning communities better than ever before.

Ignoring the Evidence: Another Decade of Decline for School Libraries | Canadian Education Association (CEA)

Ignoring the Evidence: Another Decade of Decline for School Libraries | Canadian Education Association (CEA) | School libraries and learning | Scoop.it

Excellent article by Dianne Oberg presents research evidence that school libraries do make a difference and highlights the importance placed on mandating school library provision in a number of countries throughout the world.

A must-read for those studying TLship and those school communities or districts without a qualified teacher librarian as part of the school staffing formula.
