This is an excellent article to share with your administrators - Doug Johnson even suggests that librarians do so. He discusses how to answer the question of why does a school need a library when students can access information from a laptop or tablet? I love this line: "But like bookstores, the school library needs to become a high-touch environment in a high-tech world." Indeed.

A summary of key points in the report include:
- a review of the global environment in which modern learners and educators are immersed,
- the educational implications of trends affecting contemporary schooling,
- the means of evaluating education outcomes, and
- key alerts on the critical role of the teacher librarian.

Rashmi Moghe's comment, June 17, 2013 9:57 AM
Australian School Library Association (2013). Future Learning and School Libraries. ASLA, April 2013. Retrieved from http://www.asla.org.au/advocacy.aspx

Taking the Key alerts included are-
Globalisation facilitates connectivity across schools to allow for collaborative engagement in the exchange of information and creation of new knowledge for students.
The teacher librarian and the school library are vital agencies in facilitating global connectivity.
Teacher librarians are instrumental in
• the design and delivery of digital literacy programs,
• adopting digital citizenship approaches to exercising social responsibility and
ethical practice, and
• creating awareness of cultural sensitivity in a digital environment.
They also identify, store and disseminate relevant and appropriate information to
support the teaching and learning process; Teacher Librarians assess the quality of
information and customise access to that information.
