Definitely worth trying!

Ricard Garcia's curator insight, March 7, 2:17 AM

Amazingly easy to use. A good way to turn reading comprehension into something catchy!

lharvey's curator insight, March 9, 1:04 PM

Appears to be geared mostly toward secondary at this time.  Would love to see upper elementary text added.

Make It @ Your Library

Make It @ Your Library | Teacher-Librarian | Scoop.it

This site is brought to you in collaboration with Instructables and the American Library Association, and it is our hope that through this site, libraries of all stripes and sizes will be able to experiment with maker projects. Make it @ Your Library believes that content creation in the library is a vital direction for our libraries to pursue. Maker projects don’t need to be the result of thousands of dollars of space renovation, equipment or special staffing. The projects on this site, powered by Instructables and vetted by librarians, are a great way to begin. Happy creating!

lyn_hay's curator insight, February 12, 8:05 PM

This article outlines the major issues identified by 300 Australian school library staff. The strongest concerns of school library staff were the lack of adequate funding for resources and the lack of time and qualified personnel available to provide a high standard of service, with primary schools more likely to cite budget and staffing constraints. Also of note was concern of school library staff in being able to effectively support the resourcing of the new Australian Curriculum, with over half of the schools stating they had difficulty finding age- and curriculum-appropriate resources was a substantial access issue. One major challenge currently facing school library staff is how to manage the growing number of digital resources for those who have access to funds. However, there is also growing concern of smaller schools and primary schools being left behind with regard to digital resource provision.

It would be great to see more teacher librarians taking the time to complete this survey at the end of 2014 to help our profession gain a better understanding of the true status of school library collections in Australia's schools.
