13 ways to turn talk into action

13 ways to turn talk into action | New-Tech Librarian | Scoop.it

We are all teachers by degree and experience with a strong identification with that role. We see ourselves as general experts across the curriculum; possibly the only one in the building other than the principal. We know the importance to our students of real world information literacy skills. We have a great deal to offer and sometimes we do not feel like that is seen. We really want to work as part of a team with teachers in our buildings...

How can we impact the thinking and decision-making of those who will be our future co-teachers or our principals or superintendents? How can we work with universities? How can we impact our professional organizations? How can we play a stronger role in content area organizations?
