Teacher-librarians change with the times - students need to be more info-savvy

Teacher-librarians change with the times - students need to be more info-savvy | Creating readers | Scoop.it

Today, in addition to introducing children to books and curating collections in school libraries, teacher-librarians are doing the same with websites and online information.

They often research and vet appropriate websites ahead of time to provide to teachers when they're covering a particular subject, just as they do with books.

But they also teach students to do better Internet searches, refine their search terms, and become more independent.

Part of the challenge is a trend teachers and librarians call "satisficing," a combination of satisfying and sufficient or suffice, said Finlay. In other words, students' approach is often "get what I need for an assignment and hand it in."

Teacher-librarians aim to get students to look deeper into their subjects.
