'Human library' concept a hit at Wellington
Nanaimo Daily News
Elizabeth Sansoucy-Jones, a teacher-librarian at Wellington, said the concept of the human library began in Denmark a few years and has taken off internationally since then.
Kimberly George's insight:

Rather than reading books, students are able to meet and talk to people who have first hand knowledge of a particular topic - for example war veterans.

Libraries > computers > Media and information literacy. Moving forward with our interesting profession

Peg Becksvoort's curator insight, February 28, 2013 5:05 PM

School librarians need to move outside of the library's walls. We must be tech literate and teach technology integrated with library information-seeking skills and literacies. 

Dr. Laura Sheneman's curator insight, March 2, 2013 9:40 AM

Good visual of role librarians can and should play in the school setting.

Teacher librarians transform student learning : ASLA report

The Australian School Library Association (ASLA) is calling upon Australian educational decision makers to employ teacher librarians as part of the solution to improve national student learning and literacy.  The association's report, Future learning and school libraries, highlights the positive role teacher librarians have in supporting future learning within the school.

Karen Bonanno's curator insight, April 14, 2013 9:57 PM

A summary of key points in the report include:
- a review of the global environment in which modern learners and educators are immersed,
- the educational implications of trends affecting contemporary schooling,
- the means of evaluating education outcomes, and
- key alerts on the critical role of the teacher librarian.

Rashmi Moghe's comment, June 17, 2013 9:57 AM
Australian School Library Association (2013). Future Learning and School Libraries. ASLA, April 2013. Retrieved from http://www.asla.org.au/advocacy.aspx

Taking the Key alerts included are-
Globalisation facilitates connectivity across schools to allow for collaborative engagement in the exchange of information and creation of new knowledge for students.
The teacher librarian and the school library are vital agencies in facilitating global connectivity.
Teacher librarians are instrumental in
• the design and delivery of digital literacy programs,
• adopting digital citizenship approaches to exercising social responsibility and
ethical practice, and
• creating awareness of cultural sensitivity in a digital environment.
They also identify, store and disseminate relevant and appropriate information to
support the teaching and learning process; Teacher Librarians assess the quality of
information and customise access to that information.
