More evidence confirming the importance of teacher librarians in schools

Kris McGlaun's comment, May 1, 2013 10:16 AM
I wonder if its helping. Utah's administrators should read it but will it save many of the school librarians who are going to loose their jobs?
Melinda Miller's comment, May 1, 2013 10:20 AM
Let's hope it is. the more this kind of information gets publicized, the better!

It's ok Karen! Digital tools are like fruit - some we like, some work well with one's thinking framework and others don't. Hence having a wide range of options is positive (at least in my view :-)

If it's "Common Core," then look in the core of your school. You'll find your Library /Media Center.

Mr P's ICT blog - iPads in the Classroom: Why Twitter is essential for every teacher | Walnut Media Literacy | Scoop.it

I firstly joined Twitter in an educational context when I created a class account around a year ago after reading an article about how it can be used to share work with parents and friends of the school. I had my own personal account where I followed friends, sports stars etc but had nothing to do with teaching - I had no idea the power of twitter as a teacher.
