The Daring Librarian: 5 Ways to Reflect, & Not Regret, Teaching!

The Daring Librarian: 5 Ways to Reflect, & Not Regret, Teaching! | Library Advocacy | Scoop.it


"I love teaching! I love being a School Librarian & Technology Specialist. I love my practice, my profession, my school, my library, my students, my families, and my community! I can't imagine doing anything else that feeds my soul like being an educator. I love the seasons and the time and tide of it. *


Every new school year is a do-over. Any and all the mistakes or things you didn't get to do the year before can be corrected the next year. I can't think of any other profession that gives you such a clear start and stop and a time to reflect.

The great thing about summers off (other than that they are made of awesome) is the ability to step back and reflect about the past school year. "

How Libraries Fit in the Future of Learning

How Libraries Fit in the Future of Learning | Library Advocacy | Scoop.it
More schools are transforming their traditional libraries into innovative makerspaces, giving students the chance to experiment and grow in new and exciting ways.
Via Susan Grigsby @sksgrigsby
Tania Gammage's insight:
A great explanation of how maker spaces in libraries transform them from content consumption spaces to content creation spaces. Not only does this idea strengthen STEM initiatives but the library ties all curricular areas together through storytelling, production, research, and independent self-selection driven by student interests. This is yet another reason why a certified professional library/information specialist is imperative in every school!

Lots of great things here to share (and links to explore.) I will be using Stebbins' descriptions of many Google searches as "clever marketing drivel masquerading as information." I can't wait to read her book during winter break!

College libraries reinvented for digital age

College libraries reinvented for digital age | Library Advocacy | Scoop.it
Hundreds of schools, from Ivy League universities to community colleges, have remade their libraries as colorful hubs of college life. Gone are bound journals, miles of musty books and rules governing proper behavior. In are on-site cafes, group study areas where talking is encouraged, 24-hour access and sofas designed for dozing.

Why Introverts Learn Faster - The Next Web

Why Introverts Learn Faster - The Next Web | Library Advocacy | Scoop.it
“Don’t isolate yourself from others…”

Sound familiar?

Whether you’re learning a new language, or going through training at your workplace, we’re either taught to collaborate or fail.

But is this really the best way to learn?

While cooperative learning serves a purpose in the learning process, studies show that its silence, not collaboration, that foster accelerated learning.

In today’s article, we’ll share why silence can lead to accelerated learning and why introverts are faster learners.

How to Identify and Reframe Design Problems in Your Library Space @DianaRendina

How to Identify and Reframe Design Problems in Your Library Space @DianaRendina | Library Advocacy | Scoop.it
Many of us are rethinking and redesigning our library spaces. We have visions of flexible, mobile furnishings on wheels, beautiful charging stations, tools to support technology.  And these are all great and wonderful. But if we go to our administration/school board/people who have money to give us and all we do is paint pretty pictures of what our space could be, they may or may not give us money. By identifying the specific design problems in our space and how they impact student learning, we are much more likely to secure that funding that we need. Here’s some common design problems we often face in school libraries and some ideas on how to reframe them.

The Surprising Truth About Learning in Schools | Will Richardson | TEDxWestVancouverED

We know how to help kids develop into powerful learners. Now, we just need to make that happen in schools.

"A parent of two teen-agers, Will Richardson has spent the last dozen years developing an international reputation as a leading thinker and writer about the intersection of social online learning networks and education.

Will has authored four books (with two more on the way), including ""Why School? How Education Must Change When Learning and Information are Everywhere"" (September, 2012) published by TED books and based on his 2013 TEDx talk in Melbourne, Australia. ""Why School?"" is now the #1 best-selling TED book ever.

A former public school educator of 22 years, Will is also co-founder of Modern Learner Media and co-publisher of ModernLearners.com which is a site dedicated to helping educational leaders and policy makers develop new contexts for new conversations around education.
