Reflection on the role of the Teacher Librarian

Reflection on the role of the Teacher Librarian | School Libraries | Scoop.it

How has my view of the role of the teacher librarian changed during this subject? When I started working as a teacher librarian I had no training or experience in the role and had been a primary school classroom teacher for 18 years. I entered the library, my new workplace, and was instantly captivated with the endless possibilities to make it all the things I thought a school library should be. I thought to myself, ‘I’m good at organising books and resources so teachers and students can find them! I love reading and sharing children’s literature! I love decorating! This is the job for me!’

51 Sources Of Hundreds Of Thousands Of Free eBooks | School Libraries | Scoop.it

"eBooks should’ve been a game-changing technology.

 

The idea was simple enough: no longer did you need to travel to the library to wade through rows and stacks and floors and buildings and card catalogs only to wag home only as much as you could carry."

10 Practical Ideas For Better Project-Based Learning In Your Classroom

10 Practical Ideas For Better Project-Based Learning In Your Classroom | School Libraries | Scoop.it

Project-based learning is a powerful approach to teaching. This approach allows students to learn content in a manner similar to how they will work during the rest of their lives. PBL provides teachers with easy avenues to engage students with real world problems that are relevant to the learning community. It is possible to teach multiple subjects simultaneously and make connections outside the classroom. This extensive list provided by Jennifer Nichols in this article she wrote for TeachThought makes a convincing argument for the merits of project-based learning in any curriculum. ”

Definitely a great approach to help students develop a range of skills, including social skills, as they engage with the content.

Jan Watts's curator insight, July 9, 2013 9:36 PM

Practical is the word - and each one will make a huge difference!

The changing role of the librarian: an information coach

At one time not so long ago, literacy was defined as the ability to read and write and the school library was a place where students came to check our books to read or to find information in reference books.

 

In recent years, however, with the rapid advances of technology and the way it has become ubiquitous in schools, the definition of literacy has changed so that the emphasis is more on students being able to find and edit information to create their own digital media.

Building a new library allows an opportunity to completely rethink the concept of what a library is.

Jane Schmude's curator insight, July 10, 2013 9:27 PM

A good explanation of the changing nature of the library as a place of interactive learning.

Peg Becksvoort's curator insight, July 11, 2013 1:57 PM

Just what I was trying to tell someone the other day. She said, "my students don't like to read novels, but I suppose I should take the kids to the library." To which I replied, "But they like to use the Internet to find things; wouldn't you like for them to do a better job of finding things?"

 

I like Information Coach --

51 Education Podcasts For The 21st Century Teacher | School Libraries | Scoop.it

Podcasts are a great way to get information when you’re driving in your car, making dinner at home, or waiting at the DMV to renew your license. Podcasts don’t force you to find more time in your day; they give you the opportunity to capitalize on all the dead time that already exists in your day by simply downloading the .mp3 or syncing a podcast to your iTunes account on your smartphone.
