"Here are some guiding questions for creating your digital textbook:
How are the learners going to use the information?
How will they demonstrate their learning?
Are they completing a document, creating an outline or answering a set of questions?
What are the assessments associated with the material?"

Brace Yourself: SLJ’s school library spending survey shows the hard times aren’t over, and better advocacy is needed

Brace Yourself: SLJ’s school library spending survey shows the hard times aren’t over, and better advocacy is needed | Topics to Delve into regarding Libraries, teaching and learning | Scoop.it

This year’s spending survey covers the 2010–2011 academic year. In November 2011, School Library Journal emailed its online survey to 6,500 school librarians. In total, 602 school libraries answered the survey; their representation by student enrollment or grade level doesn’t differ significantly from the 2011 survey by the American Association of School Librarians (AASL).  Presents findings on the status of school library budgets and staffing, the main tasks undertaken by library media specialists, status of collections, including digital collections and introduction of ebooks/ereaders, and the role of the SLM in digital citizenship education. This article also presents a call for stronger advocacy within the school library profession to ensure school libraries are not compromised with increasing budgetary pressures of school districts.

Virtual Dave…Real Blog » Blog Archive » Beyond the Bullet Points: Bad Libraries Build Collections, Good Libraries Build Services, Great Libraries Build Communities

"Here is the tweet that led to this post:

“Bad Libraries build collections. Good libraries build services (of which a collection is only one). Great libraries build Communities”

Due to character limits it was often re-tweed without the parenthetical:

“Bad Libraries build collections. Good libraries build services. Great libraries build Communities”

Let’s face it, this is snappier, but it is also apparently more controversial. There were a number of responses along the line that good and great libraries must build collections too. I thought it was worth more than 140 characters to add some nuance and depth to the tweet, so here we are.

Before I jump all the way in here…if you are an auditory or visual type, I made a lot fo these points in this screencast:
