Alison Hewett's insight:

Teachers at Christchurch’s Riccarton High School believe schools have a tendency to ‘silo’ into learning areas. They decided to push themselves outside their own teaching boundaries to encourage their students to take more control of their own learning. Source: Article

Websites To Download Free Audio Books – Best Of | 21st Century Children's Libraries | Scoop.it

Simply put, audiobooks are recordings of books which are read aloud. But some may think: why would we need audio books if we can read books ourselves?

The New School Library

The New School Library | 21st Century Children's Libraries | Scoop.it
As libraries continue to change with the growth of technology tools, good schools know that libraries and professional librarians are still essential to their missions.
Alison Hewett's insight:

Some interesting points, ignore the photo of outdated suites of desktop PCs for student use rather than BYOD or laptops.

 

"School librarians provide the all-important human connection between students and information, as well as between teachers and information. They promote a love of reading and learning. They curate collections that support a sense of wonder at the breadth of possibility in the world. Their human touch lifts information access from a rote and random activity to purposeful, meaningful learning." Taken from post.
