“@jjvandyk: transformation of school libraries to a learning commons environment http://t.co/nQEwj9yT @MyBCLibrary” #UU_LIM

 

"...school libraries are transforming to stay relevant in this global information economy and support the growing and changing needs of the learners. In addition to traditional roles of information literacy and providing the best resources to support curriculum, teacher-librarians support digital literacy and innovative learning practices – inquiry-based, project-based – for students and teachers. They actively connect learning to technology and resources, and facilitate knowledge creation for the school community. They are on a continuing quest to find new ways of supporting students in their learning. The role is multi-faceted, challenging, ever-evolving, and ultimately highly rewarding because the impact can be so significant."

Libraries and learning communities (video & slides) | Pew Research Center's Internet & American Life Project

"Director Lee Rainie gave a keynote address at the Internet Librarian conference that examined the potential role librarians can play in “learning communities” – both physical and virtual. Includes video and slides.

 

He looked at five questions that libraries face as they consider their role in communities:

1) What is the future of knowledge?

2) What is the future of reference expertise?

3) What is the future of public technology?

4) What is the future of learning spaces?

5) What is the future of community anchor institutions?

 

You can watch a video of his talk above or on UStream."
