Flip This Library: School Libraries Need a Revolution

Flip This Library: School Libraries Need a Revolution | School Libraries for the Future | Scoop.it

What has to happen for school libraries to become relevant? If we want to connect with the latest generation of learners and teachers, we have to totally redesign the library from the vantage point of our users—our thinking has to do a 180-degree flip. In short, it’s time for school libraries to become a lot less like Microsoft and a lot more like Google. With this notion in mind, David Loertscher, collaborated with two colleagues, Carol Koechlin and Sandi Zwaan, Canadian educational consultants, to develop an idea called the school library learning commons.
