Transitions to Digital Media | District Administration Magazine | Teacher Librarian: Sharing Ideas on Information Literacy, Reading, and Professional Development. | Scoop.it

"Transitions to Digital Media: Are school libraries on the way out?" - District Administration Magazine - Susan McLester, March 2013

 

"Marcie Post, executive director of the International Reading Association (IRA), adds that the school librarian is “a digital age lynchpin,” more important than ever to maintaining the integrity of information so integral to teaching and learning."

Linda Dougherty's insight:

"Digital Age Lynchpin" is definitely going into my vocabulary as school librarian.

New Report Highlights School Libraries' Promotion of Digital Literacy

New Report Highlights School Libraries' Promotion of Digital Literacy | Teacher Librarian: Sharing Ideas on Information Literacy, Reading, and Professional Development. | Scoop.it

“School libraries always have been interdisciplinary spaces deeply connected to the curriculum, instrumental in developing students' research and information literacy skills, and committed to creating an environment of free reading that supports lifelong learning and curiosity. These traditional roles and strengths are increasingly critical as society faces a deluge of digital information, and the lines between content user and content creator are blurred and even actively deconstructed.”

Using data is vitally important to prove your worth to administrators.

Andrea Ange's comment, February 3, 2013 10:12 AM
Actually I did do a project with freshmen students. They report that the interventions we used in the classroom made a difference in their reading ability and we increased our test scores for this group significantly.
