After hosting dozens of these conversations, I realize one thing: We just don't listen enough to our students. The tradition in education has been not to ask the students what they think or want, but rather for adult educators to design the system and curriculum by themselves, using their "superior" knowledge and experience.
"For every kid who is caught hiding beneath his covers with a flashlight and a novel at midnight, there is another who has to be begged and pleaded with to read. And the latter might need a little extra—shall we call it encouragement?—to become a great reader. To help, we've rounded up a list of the top apps that not only teach essential reading skills but also motivate kids—even the most book-phobic—to read, read and read some more."
Los objetivos que venimos desarrollando en nuestro proyecto se pueden agrupar en cuatro módulos: mejorar la competencia lecto-escritora; convertir la Biblioteca Escolar en un lugar estimulante de formación e información; fomentar la competencia digital; realizar actividades en colaboración con la comunidad educativa implicándola en nuestro proyecto e implicándonos en los objetivos que se proponen los distintos departamentos y proyectos de nuestro centro. Con la consecución de estos objetivos pretendemos en definitiva que nuestro alumnado sea autónomo, crítico y reflexivo.
Public school libraries have always served an admirable purpose in education. It is not enough to simply "be there;" school libraries need to reach out to students and pull them in with helpful resources that combine traditional and contemporary theories in literacy.
