Riding the Waves or Caught in the Tide? Insights from the IFLA Trend Report

Riding the Waves or Caught in the Tide? Insights from the IFLA Trend Report | School Libraries | Scoop.it

The IFLA Trend Report identifies five high level trends shaping the global information environment.

"E-lending in libraries and the treasure trove of personal data Today simply reading an e-book can reveal a great deal about you. How long it takes you to finish a chapter, your favourite parts, the speed and consistency of your reading and what you’re likely to borrow or buy next. In an economy increasingly built on ‘information mining’, this kind of data is of great value for publishers, distributors and authors"

This peer-reviewed journal article presents results and recommendations of a research project on the implementation of the 'Portuguese School Libraries Evaluation Model'. This could be used by individual primary teacher librarians or TL network teams to evaluate  their libraries’ reading promotion and information literacy programs.

Great article for providing strategies to evaluate library reading programs

Study shows 'readability' scores largely inaccurate

Study shows 'readability' scores largely inaccurate | School Libraries | Scoop.it
Teachers, parents and textbook companies use technical "readability" formulas to determine how difficult reading materials are and to set reading levels by age group. But new research shows that the readability formulas are usually inaccurate and offer little insight into which age groups will be able to read and understand a text.

Librarians and teachers knowing their students is always the best way forward.

Libraries and librarians shape the culture of our school as they allow students to allow unlock ideas and worlds beyond their current reality.  When will we learn that enough is enough and stand with our librarians?  It must be a stand we are willing to take because it is about all our futures.
