What’s our future – school libraries and librarians

What’s our future – school libraries and librarians | School Library Teachers: Collaborators of Knowledge | Scoop.it

"It disturbs me that we are not seriously thinking about the future of school libraries. This statement will receive incensed objections; teacher librarians are, after all, talking about changes in what we do and how we do it at conferences and in their own libraries. We talk about some of these changes in my own school library – delivering ebooks, providing transferable skills such as critical literacies to our students, delivering online resources. Well shoot me down if I upset you but I still think we’re not getting it."

Changing the school librarianship...

Some Libraries still have got it wrong…. | School Library Teachers: Collaborators of Knowledge | Scoop.it

What an insightful blog post by Andrew Churches about how we could Get it right.

 Camilla's comments about how the design of space enables or disables the engagement of library staff with library users is spot on.  But clearly we must also have much broader and  higher expectations about the role of the library staff and their services,

Search Education – Google

Search Education – Google | School Library Teachers: Collaborators of Knowledge | Scoop.it

"Google just launched its new Search Education hub.  The site offers access to leveled lesson plans for K-12, search activities from AGoogleADay, and an archive of previous webinars.

 

The site notes that the lessons are designed to support a slow-and-steady, integrated approach to search literacy. They include plenty of detail so that multiple teachers across a school or district can teach different elements as fit into their curricula, even if they start with different levels of experience with Search."
