Future Ready Librarians - Future Ready Schools

Future Ready Librarians - Future Ready Schools | Why School's Need Teacher Librarians | Scoop.it
As schools seek to become Future Ready, it is necessary to identify and cultivate leadership beyond district and building leaders. School librarians lead, teach and support the Future Ready goals of their school and district in a variety of ways through their professional practice, programs and spaces. If properly prepared and supported, school librarians are well-positioned to be at the leading edge of the digital transformation of learning.

This brief article shares a chart created by Dr Jackie Gerstein, which outlines some of the major differences between what education used to be and how it is now.  These differences are conspicuously noticed in 4 key areas : teacher and student roles, curriculum, assessment, and pedagogy.

Maggie Rouman's curator insight, April 10, 1:49 PM

Great chart that provides a concise comparison of traditional vs. current and future leaning trends.

20 Simple Assessment Strategies You Can Use Every Day | #Understanding #LEARNing2LEARN #FAQ'S | Why School's Need Teacher Librarians | Scoop.it
The ultimate goal of teaching is understanding. But sometimes it’s easier to talk than to teach, as we all know, especially when we need to cover a lot of material in a short amount of time. We hope students will understand, if not now then before test time, and we keep our fingers crossed that their results will indicate we’ve done our job. The problem is, we often rely on these tests to measure understanding and then we move on. There isn’t always time to address weaknesses and misunderstandings after the tests have been graded, and by that time it’s too late for students to be interested.

Below are 22 simple assessment strategies and tips to help you become more frequent in your teaching, planning, and curriculum design.

We have, however, recently expanded upon our Makerspace offerings thanks to being inspired by several of my librarian friends in our amazing #TLChat PLN! Kids can come in during lunch or when they've finished their work to explore, craft, and create in the Library Media Center.


I re-purposed 4 empty study carrels for this Makerspace center at the top corner of our library.  The grouping includes a Lego Creation Station, a Duct Tape Craft Cubby, and a Makey Makey Coding Corner."

Technically a Librarian: Make Writing

Technically a Librarian: Make Writing | Why School's Need Teacher Librarians | Scoop.it
While at one of our ELA planning meetings, we were discussing the lack of enthusiasm kids have for writer's workshop. What was once a time for kids to express themselves creatively, was now a time that kids dreaded. How sad? I loved Writer's Workshop as a kid. We had to fix this. They had tried creative prompts, incorporating movies and music, but they were still "bleh".

As we were brainstorming, an 8th grade English teacher brought up the book "Make Writing" by Angela Stockman. Oddly enough, I had just finished reading my advanced readers copy since I'm a member of the Hack Learning VIP program. All of a sudden we both were sitting at the edge of our seats ready to do it!
