Lourense Das's insight:

The school library rocks

living it, learning it, loving it!

 

Subthemes

The school library as a space and place: meeting, sharing, discussing. Collaborative learning and growing.

The school library as learning environment: 24/7 access to materials, resources, teachers, electronic learning environment and more.

The school library as laboratory: experience and discovery in science, arts and media‐education

The school library as a window to the world: reading, writing and communication

Curation as Digital Literacy Practice

Curation as Digital Literacy Practice | School Libraries around the world | Scoop.it

Ibrar Bhatt writes: "Digital curation therefore is not just about finding relevant material, although that is a significant part of it, but is also about creating a specific and unique experience by utilising the resulting materials which then become contextualised within a new space. A curator, therefore, whether she is a journalist-by-proxy such as Popova or a student completing an assignment in a classroom, not only collects and interprets, but also creates a new experience with it. In this respect, curation is a process of problem solving, re-assembling,re-creating, and stewardship of other people’s writing."

School library a haven for students - Reedley Exponent

There is a place on the Parlier Junior High School campus that students rush to during their lunch period, and it’s not the lunch line or the cafeteria.

It’s the library, or what is now called a “learning common.” It houses 21 computers, a color printer, WiFi, two seating areas, board games and, of course, many shelves full of books. Most days, it’s full to capacity with students, too.

This year’s “The Learning Curve” report (2014) from Pearson takes a look at education across the globe. One of the main things the report does is rank the world’s educational systems What is interesting is the focus on what skills current students need to meet the ever changing needs of the global market, and some potential ways to address shortcomings in our collective educational systems.

Interesting skills students must have for the future, but why is this important for "global market"? The world is not just a market, the world is about living and school (library) should help you to learn how to live.
