Students Don't Want to Lose Their School Libraries

Some letters that students wrote telling BESE what they thought about the revisions to Bulletin 741 that would allow school administrators to eliminate school libraries. The students were given a writing prompt to write a persuasive letter explaining why they want to keep their school libraries opened with a certified librarian at the helm.

10 Reasons to Educate Elementary Students about Social Media

10 Reasons to Educate Elementary Students about Social Media | Dede's Library Stuff | Scoop.it

It is always interesting to find out that more and more of our younger students are becoming involved with the Internet and Social Media.

Due to their developmental age, most students have some kind of difficulty with self-management throughout childhood. But, this is to be expected with children. They simply lack the maturity, brain development, and personal experience to understand how to manage themselves in every situation in real life, let alone online.

This is the integration we may need. There is also a recognition of culture playing a role in the development of online education. That is good. What we need is a conversation with lots of questions. What works? What does not?
