The Librarian has left the building

The Librarian has left the building | Creating readers | Scoop.it

The reality is that teacher librarians can be the best person to have in your school – but only if they have actually learnt how to fill that role well, and have understood and assimilated the principles of embedded librarianship.

Flipped classrooms as an activator for library thinking

"As teachers all over the world consider the future of education, we in libraries need to keep up. Maybe one way to do that is to adopt some of the terminology being bandied around by our educational colleagues, and apply it to our own practice and spaces. Not as a cure-all, but as a first step towards moving outside our ‘known’ worlds, and trying out a new set of boundaries."

Curation is the act of individuals with a passion for a content area to find, contextualize, and organize information. Curators provide a consistent update regarding what's interesting, happening, and cool in their focus.

Content curation defined for services in schools ( Great place for librarians to lead!) | Creating readers | Scoop.it

Content curation is the ongoing finding and sharing of relevant digital and non-digital content about a specific topic for a specific audience. Typically, this content will come from a variety of properly credited sources and will be collated in such a way that the collection will be more useful than its individual elements.

Teaching Students to Become Curators of Ideas: The Curation Project

Teaching Students to Become Curators of Ideas: The Curation Project | Creating readers | Scoop.it

"Over the last couple of years, I’ve come to think of my role as a teacher as that of a curator of ideas" says Corinne Weisgerber who teaches Social Media and Communication at St Edwards Unniversity in Austin, TX (if you haven't yet, check out her great prez here).

 

As she explained in this post, the Curation Project was about getting her students "to set up a network of online mentors using social media tools" and "to identify experts in their field and connect with them in order to build a personal learning network (PLN)." 

 

The idea behing the PNL is to help them discover valuable information through social search that they wouldn't have discovered otherwise.

 

Interesting project and read.

 

And great work by the students who used various curation platforms for the project, including Storify and Scoop.it (links in the post)

ADVOCACY ! Parents of Hughes Middle School students work to keep librarian

ADVOCACY ! Parents of Hughes Middle School students work to keep librarian | Creating readers | Scoop.it

"When a few Hughes Middle School parents learned that next year's budget cuts would include cutting the school library and librarian's hours by half next year, they decided to do something."

Isn't it amazing that these parents and kids realise the contribution the school library and library media specialist makes, and the educational administrators don't see this, or value this!

This is key to the advocacy conversation - ensuring your community understands your value so they actively support the library in good times and difficult ones.
