At one time not so long ago, literacy was defined as the ability to read and write and the school library was a place where students came to check our books to read or to find information in reference books.

Building a new library allows an opportunity to completely rethink the concept of what a library is.

Jane Schmude's curator insight, July 10, 2013 9:27 PM

A good explanation of the changing nature of the library as a place of interactive learning.

Peg Becksvoort's curator insight, July 11, 2013 1:57 PM

Just what I was trying to tell someone the other day. She said, "my students don't like to read novels, but I suppose I should take the kids to the library." To which I replied, "But they like to use the Internet to find things; wouldn't you like for them to do a better job of finding things?"

 

I like Information Coach --

More evidence confirming the importance of teacher librarians in schools

Kris McGlaun's comment, May 1, 2013 10:16 AM
I wonder if its helping. Utah's administrators should read it but will it save many of the school librarians who are going to loose their jobs?

"The mission of librarians, according to Lankes, is to “improve society through facilitating knowledge creation in their communities.” I’d unpack that as saying librarians enable learning, which as any librarian will tell you is common practice. It’s so common, in fact, that we never seemed to notice. Now it’s the story we need to tell."

 

Yes teacher librarians are in the business of learning and learning to learn!

Pippa Davies @PippaDavies 's curator insight, May 8, 2013 11:13 AM

Librarians have a multi-dimensional role to play in any organisation.  Literacy and technology are just part of a day's work,  it is all about integrating knowledge and helping patrons learn what works best for them.
