In Praise of Libraries and Teacher Librarians

Looking Toward the Future: Competences for 21st-Century Teacher-Librarians | de Groot | Alberta Journal of Educational Research

Looking Toward the Future: Competences for 21st-Century Teacher-Librarians | de Groot | Alberta Journal of Educational Research | School Library Advocacy | Scoop.it

This article reports on a study by Joanne de Groot and Jennifer Branch that explored what the core competencies required by teacher librarians for developing exemplary school library programs in 21st centurt schools based on the experiences and attitudes of graduates from the TL Masters program at the University of Alberta. Key findings from this study indicate that technology and leadership issues are the most pressing needs of TLs. These graduates also indicated that their “traditional roles and responsibilities” are changing as they are responsible for promoting new literacies and evaluating, selecting, organizing, and managing diverse learning resources.

For many young people, the library is the only safe space they can go to after-school. Librarians are stepping up to the challenge to make the library a cool place as well. Teen librarianship is one of the fastest-growing segments of librarianship because the profession has recognized a need to more comprehensively serve this population..." via @librarybeth
