Teacher librarians could soon be left on the funding shelf

Teacher librarians could soon be left on the funding shelf | School Libraries around the world | Scoop.it

The library is the heart of the primary school, and it is the teacher librarian who brings it alive.

Yet a slow erosion of this position is under way and a permanent loss of such a fundamental person in our primary schools would have devastating consequences in the lives of our children. Originally a full-time position, regardless of the size the school, the days worked by teacher librarians are now dictated by the number of students.

50 Search Engines You Probably Don’t Use Yet | School Libraries around the world | Scoop.it
Students, teachers and the public turn to their librarians for help researching everything from technology to genealogy to homework help and lesson plans.

How To Make Students Better Online Researchers

How To Make Students Better Online Researchers | School Libraries around the world | Scoop.it

Getting kids to really focus on what exactly they are searching for, and then be able to further distill idea into a few key specific search terms is a skill that we must teach students, and we have to do it over and over again. We never question the vital importance of teaching literacy, but we have to be mindful that there are many kinds of “literacies”. An ever more important one that ALL teachers need to be aware of is digital literacy.
