For me, the key take away was not to get to caught up in the packaged curriculum and policy i.e. using computers. How do the experiences of students and their problems help a teacher? How does a teacher's lived-experiences, their own curriculum, inform them and their teaching

Why Makerspaces Are the Key to Innovation | School Library Advocacy | Scoop.it
Makerspaces are creative spaces located in communities, schools, and public and academic libraries.  These areas are designed to engage participants in hands-on activities that teach twenty-first-century skills. The emphasis in makerspaces is placed upon educating students in STEAM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) subjects as well as digital and information literacy. According to Kylie Peppler and Sophia Bender in their article, Maker movement spreads innovation one project at a time, the focus of makerspaces is hands-on learning, “A hallmark of the maker movement is its do-it-yourself (or do-it-with-others) mindset that brings together individuals around a range of activities, including textile …

I love the byline that says "today's librarian gives Gen Z the skills they need to move from 'getting it right now' to 'getting it right.'" I couldn't have said it better myself. We have always been the champions of accurate, relevant, current, and valid resources and, in today's world, that cause is more important than it's ever been. The next time someone asks why we need libraries in the age of Google, I'm going to quote some of the statements in this article! Enjoy.

10  Good Strategies to Foster A Growth Mindset Culture in Your Class

10  Good Strategies to Foster A Growth Mindset Culture in Your Class | School Library Advocacy | Scoop.it
In her celebrated book ‘Mindset: The New Psychology of Success’, Stanford university psychologist Carol S. Dweck makes a strong case backed up with  scientific evidence for the power of mindset in shaping one’s success or failure in almost every facet of our life.Those with a fixed mindset mentality tend to be limited in their learning scope believing that their inner traits and abilities are biologically determined. On the other hand, people with a growth mindset embrace change and tend to learn more from life experiences because for them concepts such as skills, abilities and competencies are not fixated  and can be developed through a process of error and trial.

In today’s post, we are sharing with you this handy infographic we created based on Marcus Guido’s post ’10 Ways Teachers Can Instill a Growth Mindset in Students’. Guido walks you through the different strategies you can use with your students to cultivate a growth mindset in your class and ultimately enhance students learning.  Read his post to learn more about each of the strategies featured here.

Without libraries we are less human and more profoundly alone | Nicola Davies

Without libraries we are less human and more profoundly alone | Nicola Davies | School Library Advocacy | Scoop.it

Nicole Davies writes: "Librarians are far more than stackers and catalogers. They are creative curators of their book collections. They review and renew their flocks of books, adjusting what they have to fit their readers, highlighting certain sections and topics to reflect the world. They are on hand to guide and encourage, to foster relationships between books and people. Subtly, quietly, inexorably, they weave individuals into a community. They make a library shimmer, as if the books were the scales of a dragon flexing as it folds and flies."
