lyn_hay's insight:

This article outlines the major issues identified by 300 Australian school library staff. The strongest concerns of school library staff were the lack of adequate funding for resources and the lack of time and qualified personnel available to provide a high standard of service, with primary schools more likely to cite budget and staffing constraints. Also of note was concern of school library staff in being able to effectively support the resourcing of the new Australian Curriculum, with over half of the schools stating they had difficulty finding age- and curriculum-appropriate resources was a substantial access issue. One major challenge currently facing school library staff is how to manage the growing number of digital resources for those who have access to funds. However, there is also growing concern of smaller schools and primary schools being left behind with regard to digital resource provision.

It would be great to see more teacher librarians taking the time to complete this survey at the end of 2014 to help our profession gain a better understanding of the true status of school library collections in Australia's schools.

lyn_hay's curator insight, February 15, 2014 1:35 AM

Good school-based example of promoting the role and impact of the teacher librarian in one school - great use of the voice of the school leadership and classroom teachers describing the work of the TL. I like the way the TL is silent in this video clip - all we see from the TL is ACTION not words.

This could be used as a model for other school communities to capture the role, value and impact their TL.

36 Core Teacher Apps For Inquiry Learning With iPads - TeachThought

36 Core Teacher Apps For Inquiry Learning With iPads - TeachThought | Library learning centre builds lifelong learners. | Scoop.it

"The interest in inquiry-based learning seems to ebb and flow based on–well, it’s not clear why it ever ebbs.

 

In short, it is a student-centered, Constructivist approach to learning that requires critical thinking, and benefits from technology, collaboration, resourcefulness, and other modern learning skills that never seem to fall out of favor themselves.

 

Regardless, St Oliver Plunkett Primary School has put together two very useful images that can help you populate your iPad–or classroom of iPads–with apps that support both inquiry-based learning (the second image below), and a more general approach to pedagogy based on Apple’s uber-popular tablet (the top image)."

Cavna's opening story is very similar to the one that inspired my doctorate on the experiences of teachers with graphic novels (still a work in progress). It's a great article and certainly "walks the talk" about the power of images (and or text). Just love those drawings! Check out the blog comments (all 120 of them) for an interesting discussion and for some great links to other graphic novel resources.

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.

Dr. Indira Koneru's curator insight, December 25, 2013 11:07 AM

Metaliteracy, an overarching and unifying framework built on the core information literacy competencies addresses the revolutionary changes in how learners communicate, create, and distribute information in participatory environments. Central  to the metaliteracy model is a metacognitive component that encourages learners to continuously reflect on their own thinking and literacy development in these fluid and  networked spaces. This approach leads to expanded competencies for adapting to the ongoing
changes in emerging technologies and for advancing critical thinking and empowerment for producing, connecting, and distributing information as independent and collaborative learners (Jacobson &  Mackey, 2013).
