Being literate in today's society requires a different set of skills - a combination that builds on traditional literacy skills.

Thanks!

21st century skills as life long learning skills! Literacy isn't anymore just being able to read, write and, count. Deeper learning and higher order thinking skills are what needs to paid attention to. Proper information literacy skills are vital!

GwynethJones's curator insight, April 26, 7:43 PM

I have to confess, I'm an inconsistant blogger. I don't think I'll ever have the time or the tenacity to blog every Tuseday and Sunday...or twice a week.

 

Sometimes I only blog once a month, sometimes twice, or even 4 times a month, but it's not the frequency that makes a blog successful, it's the information shared and the authentiicty of the message.

 

I really respect @rmbyrne  SO much for his excellent and frequent advice!

Susan Grigsby @sksgrigsby's curator insight, April 19, 1:48 PM
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this short, but thought-provoking piece by Terry Heick of TeachThought. Of course, in philosophical terms, these secrets work for anyone in any profession but I think it is especially important for teachers in the day & age of constant change. For media specialists, this couldn't be a more important framework of the dispositions that make one a truly indispensable member of the school community. Enjoy!

A journey to iCentre thinking

Without a doubt, libraries will continue to evolve. The purpose and experience . . . will change, and change again, in the physical and virtual iterations. It’s daunting in many respects, but at the current speed of change in information /media management and dissemination, we’re best off when we assume that change is a constant. Prakash Nair and Annalise Gehlin, in the introduction to Rethink! Ideas for Inspiring School Library Design (La Marca, 2007).

Adding value: Principals’ perceptions of the role of the teacher-librarian | QUT ePrints

This paper reports on a study into principals’ perceptions of the role of the teacher-librarian. Nine principals in Australia were interviewed about the role of the teacher-librarian and library in their school. The findings indicated a range of ways in which the teacher-librarian adds value to the school, including in their role as teacher, providing the principal with a broad perspective on the workings of the school, providing advice and ideas, and providing leadership in the use of information and communications technology (ICT) at the school. It also identified a number of personal qualities valued by principals.

Innovative thinking in students will flower when we design classrooms that absolutely can’t survive without it. Same with critical thinking, self-direction, creativity, and so on. Until we reach that point, it’s on the shoulders of the classroom teacher to tease it out of students through a combination of inspiration, modeling, scaffolding, and creating persistent opportunity.
