Library To Learning Commons: 7 Reasons Why Your School Should Make The Shift

Library To Learning Commons: 7 Reasons Why Your School Should Make The Shift | library life | Scoop.it
The transition into 21st Century Education is well underway in education
with some districts and schools being further along than others.
Philosophically and pedagogically changing a school is far from easy and
takes time. One of the biggest factors slowing down the transition away
from traditional learning is the physical space that many of us do our work
in. Most of our building were built in a different era and aren’t conducive
to authentic 21st Century Learning.

A key area in any school is the library, or as many schools are now
reinventing it as, The Learning Commons. Think of a Learning Commons as
Library 2.0, an area where collaboration and communication are abundant.

The Challenges of Digital Leadership

The Challenges of Digital Leadership | library life | Scoop.it
By far the most prevalent issue I see in schools struggling with their technology integration and implementation is the lack of a collective vision for how digital learning tools will be used to enhance learning. Schools often purchase software, computer devices, and technology-based learning systems because they are effective marketing tools for recruitment, or because they want to keep pace with the digital investments of rival institutions, or simply because they fear appearing outdated. None of these have to do with learning, of course, and inevitably are insufficient to smooth over the challenges that arise as digital tools enter classroom spaces.

ISTE Infographic: Ready, set, blend! | library life | Scoop.it
The basic cognitive skills needed by previous generations are no longer enough. Students in the conceptual age must also master the higher levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy and Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, including creation, metacognition and self-actualization.

“It will require an upgrade to our curriculum, new instructional methods and materials, a new profile of a global graduate and an open mind,” say Smith, Chavez and Seaman.

For ideas about how to re-create your classroom for the conceptual age, including potential classroom setups, blended learning models to mix and match, and a curriculum design process, take a look at the infographic

The report describes findings from the NMC Horizon Project, an ongoing research project designed to identify and describe emerging technologies likely to have an impact on teaching, learning, and creative inquiry. Six key trends, six significant challenges, and six emerging technologies are identified across three adoption horizons over the next one to five years, giving library leaders and staff a valuable guide for strategic technology planning. The format of the report was designed to provide these leaders with more in-depth insight into how the trends and challenges are accelerating and impeding the adoption of technology, along with their implications for policy, leadership, and practice.
