aSilver Creek High School in Longmont, Colorado, is about to embark on a 1:1 device environment. Teacher librarian Phil Goerner shares insights and goals for the year ahead and how he and his staff will be an integral part of the transition.

L2_S2S's insight:

Is your school on it's BYOD journey?
What part are you and the library playing in that journey?

This article may inspire or affirm you.

"While 1:1 devices are just “another tool,” we librarians can help best use that tool for purposes that strengthen student achievement and help all our teachers, the techies and the technophobes alike, to embrace the possibilities of the digital future."

AASL’s “School Libraries Count!” 2011 survey results on Digital Citizenship

Summary of survey results regarding school libraries contributing to digital citizenship curriculum. Demonstrates the different ways teacher librarians support students' development as digital citizens.

Key Highlights: Traditional School Library Curriculum Carried Over Into Digital Citizenship:

• The majority of those surveyed (71%) report digital citizenship is incorporated through their school or district curriculum. When digital citizenship is not part of the school or district curriculum a third (35%)
report digital citizenship is part of their school library curriculum.
• Intellectual property is the top area incorporated into school curricula for teaching digital citizenship with most identifying plagiarism, copyright and
creative rights as top content areas (95%).
• School librarians, either solo or in collaboration with classroom teachers and/or technology instructors, are teaching digital citizenship in their schools.

Social Media Literacy: The Five Key Concepts

Social Media Literacy: The Five Key Concepts | Digital Literacy for a digital-by-default education landscape | Scoop.it
Edutopia blogger Stacey Goodman describes each key concept of media literacy, also explaing why it's important, as teachers, we know what they are.
L2_S2S's insight:

As young people's online lives and persona's morph, education and good messaging around Social Media Literacy which extends to what is created and consumed need to be part any digital citizenship/ literacy programme.

"The situation is no longer us, the passive media consumers, versus them, the corporate and government media powers. When it comes to perpetuating harmful media messages, the enemy is often us."

This article works well in conjunction with Common Sense Media's latest clip
