It was not! I believe that Next Year's Model (term used by the school library journal) is not the school librarian escapee – any more than the classroom escapee was never the right person to be a school librarian!

Maybe I'm just nostalgic, but I wonder...With a 4G world swirling about us, is there a need for the "clean, well-lighted place" where students can read and write and study and think?

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, February 12, 10:54 AM

The table of contents used questions which is interesting. It is a long read, but hopefully addresses issues openly.

 

niftyjock's curator insight, February 12, 1:24 PM

This is an "occasional paper" (I love this idea that it's only occasional) apart from the name it has some old news and some new ideas around how to teach the new literacies.  

Danielle M. Villegas's curator insight, February 13, 7:25 AM

This is a fantastic whitepaper about the value of participatory culture in elearning and other digital means of education. This is very much the approach I come from in my own standpoint of using social media in elearning and mlearning, and just gathering information in general. The document is not light reading, but it's very well-written, and seems fairly comprehensive. A must-read for those who are in education, elearning or mlearning. Really good stuff.
