Excellent article featuring the thoughts of a school principal as she works with her school community to build new libraries in the junior and senior schools. I love her vision, "We felt very strongly that the library is more than a facilitating process – it has cultural significance which matters. The library can inspire" and "Our approach is unashamedly about inspiring a love of learning". I think the Cabinet of Curiosities concept is a brilliant program in stimulating students' interest and encouraging inquiry.

Parents Want Kids to Use Mobile Devices in Schools

Parents Want Kids to Use Mobile Devices in Schools | School Library Media Tools | Scoop.it

Some 45 percent of parents said they either had already purchased or planned to purchase a mobile device to support their children’s education, and 56 percent said they’d be willing to purchase a mobile device if their child’s school required it. About half of parents’ high school students carry smartphones to school, parents said.

By contrast, only 16 percent of schools had a policy that allowed students to use their own mobile devices in class, according to parents, while only 17 percent said their children were required to use a mobile device—owned either by the school or the student—as part of their education.

Don't Let the Pigeon Read the Books!

Every year when the students come back to the library, we talk about how to care of library books. This year, I thought I'd do something a little different.

The proof is in the reading.  And making it a daily practice.

This is so important. It isn't just important for mothers to read aloud. It is very important that fathers take a turn too.
