An Open Letter To Principals (Before You Hire A New School Librarian)

An Open Letter To Principals (Before You Hire A New School Librarian) | School Library Advocacy | Scoop.it

I know you're busy, so I won't mince words: Hiring and supporting awesome people to work with the students who go to your school is the most important part of your job.  Period.  It's not school safety.  It's not community outreach.  It's not busses,  instructional services or building maintenance.  It's people.  Because the better people you have, the more empowered and capable they are, the fewer problems you'll have in all of those other areas.  Great people = great outcomes.

Six Top Sources for Free Images, Video, and Audio | Cool Tools - SLJ @rmbyrne

Six Top Sources for Free Images, Video, and Audio | Cool Tools - SLJ @rmbyrne | School Library Advocacy | Scoop.it
I’ve written about a number of video, audio, and collage creation tools, with WeVideo, Audacity, and PicMonkey topping some of my lists. However, it can be a challenge for students to locate copyright-friendly media when using these tools for presentations or idea sharing. It’s always best for students to create materials or use ones that are in the public domain. Here are some of the best resources I’ve found for the latter.

Librarian helps teen find new outlook on life through books

Librarian helps teen find new outlook on life through books | School Library Advocacy | Scoop.it

This is the story of a 13-year-old booklover who only knew one student at his new middle school last year, sat by himself on the bus and didn't have anyone to talk to at lunch.

  

And it's about the soon-to-retire librarian who made a huge impact on his life by taking personal interest in him when he wandered into the library.

 

And, of course, it's about the north Shreveport mother who wanted the librarian to know "her special attention did not go unnoticed."

Why We Changed Our Model of the “8 Essential Elements of PBL” Project Based Learning

Why We Changed Our Model of the “8 Essential Elements of PBL” Project Based Learning | School Library Advocacy | Scoop.it
BIE’s Essential Project Design Elements contain two new items, both of which are familiar to those who know PBL. One is “authenticity,” which has to do with how real-world the project is. The other is “reflection,” which we have previously coupled with “revision” but now stands on its own; students should reflect on what they’re learning, how they’re learning, and what they have accomplished in a project.

Awesome learning commons that is merging makerspaces, collaborating with teachers, and inviting community into the school library! Great way to have "real" connections with school assignments to "real" world. Thanks Yvonne Miller and Deidre Morgenthaler for sharing your library.
