Library as Platform: Unlocking the Potential of Our Communities

Our buildings matter. Our services matter. But they don’t matter on their own, and we do not determine their value – that is a job for the community.  David Lanke shares his thoughts on the future of the librarian and library, or learning commons.

AASL releases white paper on technology use in schools

AASL releases white paper on technology use in schools | School Library Learning Commons | Scoop.it

The American Association of School Librarians (AASL), in conjunction with its second annual Banned Websites Awareness Day, has released a white paper covering the appropriate use of educational technology in schools.  The paper covers the topics of filtering practices, acceptable use policies (AUPs), apps, social media, bring your own device (BYOD) and other related subjects.

 

The paper states that when used appropriately, educational technology is a tool to assist with implementation of the Common Core State Standards, help raise graduation rates and prepare students for life beyond K-12 education. It further clarifies that technology employed in isolation, without direct instruction, or highly qualified guidance, fails to address those concerns.
