Letting Go of Boolean Operators: Rethinking How Research Is Taught in Schools | ALA TechSource | School libraries for information literacy and learning! | Scoop.it
"I am constantly struggling with the sense that I’m doing a lot of talking for nothing. I painstakingly teach kids how to use a database and they go straight back to Wikipedia as soon as I turn them loose. I show them how to use keywords and operators and they always fall back on their “ask Google a question” method."

Some worthwhile things to consider in teaching information searching!

Anu Ojaranta: Muutos!

Anu Ojaranta: Muutos! | School libraries for information literacy and learning! | Scoop.it

Tämä vuodenvaihde tuo jälleen muutoksen työntäyteeseen elämääni. Siirryin pois päätoimisen opettajan työstä ja muutan toimistoni Åbo Akademille. Väitöskirjatyö veti nyt pidemmän korren. Pidin opettamisesta todella paljon, mutta väitöskirjan aihe vaatii nyt paneutumista. Eli opettajasta apurahatutkijaksi!


Olen myös perustanut toiminimen, jonka puitteissa pidän esitelmiä ja koulutuksia. Tarkoituksena on jakaa kokemustani sekä osaamistani koulujen ja kirjastojen yhteistyön edistämiseksi, konkreettisten ratkaisujen kehittämiseksi. Myös ohjatun tutkimisen menetelmään, Guided Inquiry, saa minulta ohjausta.

Short article and video of a news report featuring the release of the South Carolina Association of School Librarians (SCASL) impact study. Useful text and video when promoting the value of school libraries and the role of the teacher librarian in supporting student learning.

Dr. Laura Sheneman's curator insight, September 24, 2015 9:20 AM

"The presence of librarians and library support staff, instructional collaboration between librarians and teachers, traditional and digital collections, library expenditures, and access to computers," she explained.

 

The study found that the schools which had these five components had better performance on the Palmetto Assessment of State Standards.
