Five key roles for 21st-century school librarians - eSchool News

Five key roles for 21st-century school librarians - eSchool News | Teacher Librarians Rule | Scoop.it

According to Joyce Valenza, teacher librarian at Springfield Township High School in Pennsylvania and author of School Library Journal’s “Never Ending Search” blog, this is the golden age of librarianship.

Co-presenting a session at educational technology leader Alan November’s 2012 Building Learning Communities (BLC) conference on July 19 with Shannon McClintock Miller, district librarian and technology integration specialist at Van Meter Schools in Iowa, Valenza outlined five areas in which K-12 schools should turn to their librarians to empower learners with valuable 21st-century college and career readiness skills.

Teachers Guide to The 21st Century Learning Model : Connected Learning

Teachers Guide to The 21st Century Learning Model : Connected Learning | Teacher Librarians Rule | Scoop.it

"In the last Digital and Learning Conference that took place in San Francisco, researchers and scholars cited an ever-widening gap between what they considered in-school learning and out-of-school learning. The abyss between the two types of learning is growing wider and wider as more and more students are having free unlimited access to all kinds of information online. For them school curricula  are boring as they teach things that are not immediately related to their everyday lives. This is why disengagement, short attention span, and lack of motivation are among the most alarmingly challenging issues confronting every teacher today."

Interesting issues about in and out of school literacies, how to bring these together, Kuhlthau is using the term "third space" locating between the student and the curriculum. Greetings, Anu

Teaching in the 21st century is definitely not an easy task. Students are digitally focused and have more free access to information challenging thus the traditional prototypic picture of the teacher as the knowledge instigator.

Digital resources: researchers need better access and more training

Digital resources: researchers need better access and more training | Teacher Librarians Rule | Scoop.it
A British Library report into research behaviour and information seeking habits finds that along with access to online resources, training in how to make best use of those resources, is lacking.

 

Although today's young researchers appear at ease in the digital world, a report published in 2008 provided early notice that all may not be as it seems. It told us that while young people were very familiar with technology, they often lacked the critical skills to assess and analyse the information they were finding in a meaningful way: relying too heavily on search engines and not reading articles thoroughly.

Indeed, a teacher-librarian I interviewed recently called it 'an approach to life' (Lupton manuscript). Thus, inquiry learning as a pedagogy and curriculum design involves:

1) questioning frameworks

2) information literacy / information seeking processes

3) an action research cycle
