lyn_hay's curator insight, July 3, 2013 4:01 AM

The latest research project conducted by Keith Curry Lance and associates in Pennsylvania which examines school administrators' perceptions of school libraries and student test scores. One of the reports recommendations highlights the need for more TL practitioners to work at building local evidence to strengthen the research base, as the authors conclude: "We also need more local action research studies—otherwise known as self-assessments—by school librarians themselves. Many school librarians do not feel they have time to conduct self-assessments in the form of local, evidence-based studies of their practice. Yet this needs to be an integral part of the research. If we wish to see the kind of change in the public education policy that will establish firmly the future of school libraries and librarians, local decision-makers—administrators, school board members, and even parents—must be made aware not only of what we know from large-scale studies but also of evidence of ways in which their own experience of school libraries and librarians matters. Only then will they internalize a deep understanding of the contributions that school library programs make and begin to make decisions consistent with a

personal commitment to them."
I could not agree more with this recommendation. Since 2010, Dr Ross Todd and I have been working together to help build the capacity of Australia's TL profession as evidence-based practitioners. This is a slow movement, but we are starting to see some excellent practice-based research being published in journals such as Scan and Access, and being presented at conferences. We are slowly building this evidence, but we need this movement to extend beyond those leading lights in the profession. Only then will we be in a position to demonstrate to education systems, governments and the wider community of school libraries impact on student achievement.

15 Tools For Better Project-Based Learning

15 Tools For Better Project-Based Learning | School Libraries = Learning! | Scoop.it

Project-Based Learning is a 21st century approach to learning that acts both as a curriculum and instruction tool, as well as a new way for students to think about school. Rather than strictly academic lessons and units, real-world problems can be solved, and students gain experience with long-term management of the learning process, and the possibility of self-direction.

Project-Based Learning allows naturally embedding of “school” in authentic environments whether those are digital or physical. It is a way of learning that is as much about the process as the project, allowing for the seamless integration of technology, and the inclusion of digital and social media to solve relevant personal and social challenges.

Joanne Schenkel's curator insight, November 2, 2013 10:29 PM

Yes! My year 7 students expressed the same view last week. They prefer to interact with paper books and love the fact that I can guide them to find a book which is a "perfect fit". Many students said they would then use the recommendations from their classmates, particularly those with whom I'd encouraged to try a new author or series.
